Published on: 06 December 2021

Former Ghana defender Dan Quaye has reacted to Emmanuel Agyemang Badu’s retirement from the national team.

The 30-year-old after a three-year absence from the Black Stars decided to call it a quit-on January 31, 2020 and focus on his club career.

In an interview with Koforidua-based Aben FM, the former Hearts of Oak defender said players leave the national team with pain with Badu no exception.

“Agyemang Badu retired from the national team because of how things are done. He retired out of pain. Playing for your national team helps improve your value but Badu was neglected at some point in time, so his decision to quit the national team is in order”

“It is good that he is focusing on club football to make money for the future” said the 2006 FIFA World Cup squad member.

The ex-Udinese midfielder played 78 times for the Black Stars.
