Former Orlando Pirates attacker Bernard Morrison has hit out the Ghana national side after not receiving a call-up for the World Cup qualifiers.

Morrison is currently plying his trade in Tanzania with Simba, but is yet to make an appearance for the Ghanaian national side.

The 28-year-old also seemingly took a shot at Andre Ayew who is currently playing in Qatar after leaving England earlier this year.

“I can do a great job than most of the guys who play in Qatar,” he claimed in an interview, quoted by SoccerScenes Africa & Globe.

“If you call someone for the Black Stars who plays in Qatar, why not me too? We play the same-sized football. It’s really a shame for us playing in Africa.

“This is why I admire South Africa, Egypt, Zambia, they call anyone who deserves it, not just because you are outside the African continent.

“For Black Stars, they call players who are goalkeepers in Africa. The previous coach used to call players who played in Africa, as a result, they earned moves abroad.

“Look at Jonathan Mensah, the Guy was playing for Ghana while he was still playing in South Africa PSL, at Free State Stars.

“We don’t actually need these foreign coaches whose eyes are always in Europe.

“I believe we are more hungrier than them. I would play my heart out for this nation. We need help to stop being overlooked like this.

“Look, Nigeria has many good players, but when I check their list, they have played players who play in their league and in PSL, as long you are good.

“Look at Emmanuel Emenike. He used to play not even for a PSL team, but a second division team in South Africa. He went on to be the best striker in Nigeria national team as he also moved to Turkey.”
