In a statement released on behalf of the midfielder, Fiorentina stated that being consistently sidelined has led to the player’s decision to call time on his international career.
In the statement, Duncan said “When you are never considered and there is nothing you can do to change the situation, mentally it becomes more difficult. I have been humiliated, discriminated against and left aside for years even though I have tried to keep the doors open all the time”.
Alfred Duncan further added that he did not deserve the treatment he received over the years and he believes the time is right for such a decision.
“The President of the GFA, Kwesi Appiah, Avram Grant and CK Akonnor know perfectly well what I mean and how they treated me. For the person that I am, I don’t deserve everything they put me through and for this reason, I put an end to a story that never began”.
Alfred Duncan, 29, played 10 games for the Black Stars of Ghana, scoring no goals in a career that started in 2012.
