Former Ebusua Dwarfs and Great Olympics head coach, J.E Sarpong has said the sacked Coach of the Black Stars, Milovan Rajevec, was not cut for the job.
“Milo is not cut for the job, Ghana is a football-loving country and so the heartbeat for this country is football but the problem of the Black Stars started not now, some centuries ago and all problems were swept under the Carpet.”
According to Coach Sarpong, the problem was diagnosed long ago, but the country kept saying it will be good next time without doing anything about the issue while it worsened.
“Oh, it will be good next time, it will be good, and it was getting worse. Coaches have been tried, to handle this team without any success,” he noted.
Speaking on the GTV Breakfast Show, Coach Sarpong stated that, the mode of selection of football players is not the best. He alleges favoritism and cronyism in selecting players.
“Like the mode of selection, the Coach who handles the team has been the sole, someone who invites the players to the National team. But in some circumstances, the officials take over. People who are at the helm of affairs determine who should come and play for the Black Stars. You know, because you already have a player outside, but because you do not have that rapport you will not be invited to play for the National Team,” Coach Sarpong lamented.
