Partey Unhappy About Negative Black Stars Reportage

Published

on

Arsenal and Black Stars midfielder, Thomas Partey has expressed disappointment with the negative reportage churned by media outlets around the national team in recent times.

Reports about the assistant Black Stars captain being sacked from national team camp for failing to report made rounds ahead of Ghana’s friendly with Morocco in Rabat, as it was evident he wasn’t a part of the squad.

The Ghana football Association later clarified the situation in statement indicating Partey had sought permission to be away and was to join the team for preparation ahead of the second friendly against Ivory Coast.

Partey explained his frustration at such speculative news put out by some media houses.

“Between ourselves, we know what’s going on. Sometimes bad news will go outside and we don’t know how those things come out. We have to trust each other, we have to keep things to ourselves, work harder no matter what the situation is. Whatever people are thinking about us we have to believe in ourselves. We are the ones who are inside, we know how much we love each other and how much we want to help each other so we have to continue doing that,” he said in an interview with TV3.

Partey as one of the head figures in camp, alongside the leadership of the team have the task of mentoring the young bunch of players who have joined the fray and admits the process is smooth sailing.

“Most of them are professionals, sometimes you don’t need to talk a lot. They have to look up to what the big men in the team are doing, and they get used to it, they understand to be able to get to where you have to be, you have to learn from those who were there before. So I think they understood everything the coach told them, and they are keeping up to us,” Partey explained.

The Black Stars concluded 12 days of national team activity with a friendly against Ivory Coast at the Cape Coast Stadium and will now head for short breaks before preseason for most players begin.

Asamoah Gyan

Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has said he wishes to feature at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Gyan hasn’t played for the Black Stars since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and has been blighted by injuries.

The 36-year-old returned to the Ghana Premier League last season after signing for Legon Cities, but rarely played before parting ways with the club after just a year.

Currently promoting his autobiography, titled ‘Legyandary: the story of Asamoah Gyan’, the veteran striker said every player would love to play at the World Cup.

He, however, explained that he is currently not fit enough to play at the highest level, which all but rules out his chances of playing in the tournament.

“Who doesn’t want to play at the World Cup? Every player wants to play at the World Cup,” he said on Citi TV, as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“Yes, I have tasted the World Cup three times and though I would love to play at this year’s World Cup, as I have always said, I am currently not fit enough to play active football but when I Start playing – who knows?”

The former Sunderland and Al Ain forward further revealed that he will be in Qatar for the World Cup as a pundit.

The Black Stars booked their place at the quadrennial tournament on away goals following a 1-1 aggregate score against West African rivals Nigeria in March.
“I shall surely be in Qatar but maybe a pundit or let’s see,” Gyan added.

The striker’s book launch will come off on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at the plush Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.

Will Callum Hudson-Odoi Play For Ghana In the World Cup?

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Information reaching GhArticles.com from GOAL.com can reveals that Callum Hudson-Odoi is contemplating switching from England to Ghana.

On March 29, Ghana defeated Nigeria in two legs to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The 21-year-old hasn’t played for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions in almost two years, and he’s rejected down recent Under-21 call-ups.

Despite winning three caps for England, Hudson-Odoi is still free to switch nationalities.

This follows a FIFA rule change in September 2020 that allowed players with three or less caps to move once they turned 21.

The dual nationality of Hudson-Odoi comes from his father Bismark, who played football for Hearts of Oak in Ghana.

Hudson-Odoi has been to Ghana on vacation recently, in January 2022 and last summer.

When asked whether he was considering switching, he answered, “We will wait till that moment comes.”

Hudson-Odoi has reportedly met with President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Ghana Football Association.
