The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Saanie Daara says Ghanaians must be pleased with the team’s performance at the Africa Cup of Nations despite failing to win the ultimate.
According to the GFA officials, Ghanaians are too demanding of the Stars.
Speaking on Peace FM’s morning show “Kokrokoo” Mr Daara said Ghanaians must be content with the performance of the Black Stars.
“Though this was not the kind of performance we all expected I still think the team did not do bad, it is the matter of fortune,” he said.
“Luck was not on our side. Even some big African teams with World class players could not excel in the competition.
“Senegal, Algeria, Ivory Coast could not excel and these were team’s tipped to win the competition.
“DR Congo is a top side in Africa and we were able to beat them. The Black Stars could not qualify for the World Cup during my time as a journalist but the team has been consistently at the competition in the past few years.”
The Black Stars failed to win any silverware at the just ended AFCON in Gabon, extending Ghana’s trophy drought to 37 years.
