Ghana Talent Slammed After Snubbing AFCON Call

One of Ghana's most promising prospects has been called out for rejecting the chance to play for his country at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Spain Beg African Starlet To Reject AFCON Call?

It was reported a few weeks ago that Southampton centre-back Mohammed Salisu was set to turn down the chance to join the Black Stars' squad for the tournament in Cameroon next month.

Earlier this year, the 22-year-old rejected a call-up, revealing that he believed it was not the right moment to play international football as he was aiming to establish himself as a regular Premier League player.

With the defender's name among those missing from Ghana's preliminary team for the upcoming AFCON as a result, Ghanaian football administrator Alhaji Grusah is annoyed by the ex-Real Valladolid player's decision to hold firm in his stance.

Have you seen the stadiums that will host the AFCON tournament? 

"He doesn't respect. I don't know who is advising him," he said on Asempa FM's SportsNite

"I taught his father at the Arabic school. His niece is also my classmate. I've taken steps to talk to him. His mother has also held a meeting with the president of the GFA. 

"But, he hasn't changed his mind yet. He shouldn't forget that he won't play for Southampton for life. After his career, he will come back to Ghana."
