It’s not every day we hear a former midfielder like Emmanuel Agyemang Badu spill the beans on the Black Stars. If you’re a football fan, you’ve probably heard about the tough times they’ve been having. Let’s dive into what Badu had to say in an exclusive interview with Citi Sports.
A Rough Patch for the Black Stars
The Black Stars recently faced a humiliating 4-0 defeat against the USA and a 2-0 loss to Mexico in some international friendly games. Ouch, right? No wonder Badu’s having a hard time explaining what’s going on.
Badu, who’s no stranger to the football scene having played with the Black Stars at the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups, had this to say: “Explaining is very difficult because this is not what we want.
I don’t think nobody is happy with what happened; I don’t think the coach is happy, the FA is happy, and our Ghana supporters are not happy with what’s going on.”
It’s pretty clear that the whole Black Stars team isn’t in high spirits after these recent performances. Badu highlighted the urgency of the situation, saying, “We have one and a half months until the tournament (2023 AFCON), and we need to start approaching the games seriously and get to where we want to be. This is what has happened… I know the pressure is very high.”
A Change of Scenery
Before the 2022-2023 BetPawa Premier League kicked off, Agyemang Badu decided to leave the Accra Great Olympics. It’s a move that got fans talking, and it’s no wonder given the recent challenges the team has faced.
What Lies Ahead
The road doesn’t get any smoother for the Black Stars. They’ve been placed in Group B for the 2023 AFCON, and their opponents include Egypt, Mozambique, and Cape Verde.
It’s safe to say that the road to victory won’t be easy, but let’s hope they can turn things around.
So there you have it, folks, a firsthand account from Badu on what’s been going on with the Black Stars.
It’s a tough spot they find themselves in, but with the right attitude and some hard work, they might just surprise us all. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for a better future for the team.
