- Mubarak Wakaso has revealed his future plans regarding playing for the Black Stars
- The midfielder said he is not ready to quit the national team now
- Wakaso was one of Ghana's best players during the 2019 AFCON in Egypt
Ghanaian international, Mubarak Wakaso, has opened up about his retirement from the Black Stars.
Wakaso has ruled out any possibility of hanging his boots with the national team despite the early exit from AFCON 2019.
Prior to the start of the just ended AFCON, winger Christian Atsu indicated that a good chunk of the current crop of players in the national team would call it quits if the Black Stars failed to win the competition.
Wakaso, however, is not siding with Atsu and has said, "I can’t complete my time with the Black Stars without winning something. “I need to win something before I stop."
The box-to-box midfielder midfielder explained that the current crop must leave a winning culture and legacy behind so that the next generation can learn from it.
“To be honest there are young ones coming up and we have to make way for them to also continue but we must set an example for them to come and continue,” he revealed on Face to Face on Citi TV.
The Alaves player was named man of the match in Ghana’s round of 16 defeat against Tunisia.
At the end of the game, he broke down in tears during the post match conference, claiming that it hurt him to be eliminated after putting in maximum effort.
