The Head Coach of Ghana's Black Stars, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, says he is unconcerned about Mohammed Salissu's refusal to play for the senior national team.

The Southampton defender has shown an interest in playing for the Black Stars in the future, but he is now concentrating on his club career.

Coach Akonnor, on the other hand, doesn't have much of a problem with the position Salisu sometimes occupies, claiming that he has a lot of quality players who will be fit in that position.

"He is somebody who I have watched for sometime now. We understand he is doing well but in his area of position we have a lot of players we are very satisfied with,"

“We don’t have much of a problem in that position so we would look at him when he is ready,” he said at a press briefing,"

Ghana is scheduled to play against Morocco on Tuesday, June 8 in Rabat before taking on Ivory Coast on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at the Cape Coast Stadium.
