We Will Build A New Black Stars Based on Homegrown Players – Mahama Promises

Following the Black Stars’ dismal performance at the current AFCON 2023 in Ivory Coast, John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has pledged a complete makeover of the senior national squad.

“We just came from the Africa Cup of Nations, and we performed abysmally and disastrously,” he said.

Adding that, “We performed abysmally because we are not growing our football, and so we are going to work with the Ghana Football Association to start catching them young so that we can train them and give them to local teams to gain experience before, if they want to travel abroad, they can travel.”

We Will Build A New Black Stars Based on Homegrown Players – Mahama Promises

Speaking during a campaign tour in the Northern area, Mr. Mahama stated that the Black Stars’ roster will be revamped by his next government by guaranteeing players from the region.

“We will build the new Black Stars based on homegrown players. Domestic players who have trained together for a long time and work as a team, and then we will bring the foreign players to come and blend with them,” he continued.

“If you bring only foreign players, they don’t play together and play in their teams, and then when it’s time for competition and you tell them to come and play, it won’t work. The core of the Black Stars must be made of domestic players.”

“We are going to overhaul Ghana football in collaboration with the Football Association,” he promised.
