The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku, insists that the head coach of the Black Stars, Otto Addo and his assistants have the complete backing of him and his team.
Speaking during the announcement of the Black Stars’ 26-man squad for the World Cup, Kurt Okraku said he had faith in Addo and the rest of the technical team to put up a good showing in Qatar.
He said he trusted in the ability of the team put together by the Black Stars technical team to compete against the world’s best at the tournament, which kicks off on Sunday.
“We have absolute confidence in our technical team led by Otto Addo. They’ve been working hard to put a squad that is truly Ghanaian together,” he said.
He urged Ghanaians to offer a similar level of support to the team as they prepare to take on Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Qatar.
“We have to give this technical team respect, we have to give them support and we have to pray for them because it’s not been an easy road,” he said.
He also added that it is imperative for Ghanaians to be more positive about Otto Addo’s team and their chances in Qatar.
“All the negativity around the team must stop,” he said.
“Let’s be positive, let’s rally around the flag and let’s make our dear nation great and strong. On the part of the FA, we are very positive.”
