Eddie's dad isn't ready to let his son play for Black Stars- Eddie Nketiah's uncle

Published on: 06 August 2020

Vincent Owusu Appiah, the uncle of Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, has revealed that the player's father is not ready to allow his son to feature for the Black Stars.

After Arsenal won the FA cup with a 2-1 victory over Chelsea, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) congratulated the youngster for playing a part in the win.

The message did not go down well with Ghanaians.

When asked about Nketiah's availability, he gave the updates.

“The structures in The GFA is not correct. His dad is not ready to allow his son to play for Ghana," he told Wontumi radio.

“Eddie Nketiah’s main target is to settle in Arsenal, before he focuses on either playing for Black Stars or The Three Lions of England. Kurt Okraku has contacted the father of Eddie Nketiah but The Father is not willing to let his son play for the Ghana Black Stars or even The Black Starlets of Ghana.”

In conclusion he said, “ The GFA President Kurt Okraku should travel to London and have a meeting with the family and the player himself before I think an agreement can be reached."
