Ghana’s Ministry of Youth and Sports has summoned the leaders of the Ghana Football Association for an emergency meeting over the Black Stars’ “poor performance” in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
A statement from the Department of Sports on Wednesday expressed disappointment with the performance of the black stars, calling for a meeting to see the way forward.
“The Ministry of Youth and Sports shares the sentiment of the nation…the Ministry has convened the GFA leadership to an emergency meeting scheduled for Friday 21st January 2022 to discuss and take urgent decisions to save Black Stars performance, especially in the next series of games,” the statement added.
The Black Stars were knocked out of the competition after a loss to Minnows Comoros and lost all of their matches in the group stage.
Ghana’s exit from the tournament is the worst performance by the senior national team in the AFCON tournament in history.
The majority of Ghanaians have called on the FA to immediately relieve the team’s head coach Milovan Rajevac for his poor performance. The coach, Milovan Rajevac has already said he will not quit and will ensure to take Ghana to the 2022 world cup.
