Black Stars scouts fail to travel as NC join Black Stars squad in Dubai

Published on: 10 June 2019

Black Stars scouts David Duncan, Sellas Tetteh and Mas-Ud Dramani were unable to travel to monitor the country's Group F opponents with just 11 days for the start of the  2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ghana FA acting General Secretary and protocol officer of the Black Stars Alex Asante is with the national team in Dubai while members of the interim body of the FA have also flown to the Arab region, leaving the three scouts in Ghana.

Travel arrangements for the three coaches have stalled as they appear to have no idea when they will travel to scouts group F opponents Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.

No one has attended to their travel arrangements with coach Kwesi Appiah left with no ideas about his group opponents, less than two weeks before the start of the continent's flagship tournament.

The latest situation is a massive slap on the Normalisation Committee, who appear more interested in personal comfort at the expense of the national team.

The inaction of the interim body will spark anger among many Ghanaians, who will take no excuse for the country's failure to clinch a 37-year elusive crown.

The Black Stars, who have been camping at the Jebel Ali Centre of Excellence in Dubai, lost 1-0 to Namibia in an international friendly on Sunday.

Coach Kwesi Appiah is expected to name to his final 23-man squad for the tournament on Monday.
