The Head of Communications of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum, has revealed that various attempts have been made to convince Southampton defender, Mohammed Salisu to play for the Black Stars.
Since the Black Stars’ recent qualification for the World Cup in Qatar, the debate over Salisu and some International based gamers have re-emerged.
Mr Twum, however, disclosed that tries from the ultimate three Black Stars coaches were turned down by means of the 22-year-old as ‘he needed some time’ to make his decision.
“We’ve made overtures, about four or 5 times. C.K. Akonnor tried, he wasn’t successful, Milovan tried and he wasn’t successful,” he said on Citi TV.
According to him, the contemporary Black Stars coach, Otto Addo, also tried to recruit the younger defender before the playoffs against Nigeria but was unsuccessful.
“Otto tried and he [Salisu] still thinks he desires time,” Mr Twum claimed.
Salisu is currently one of the pleasant younger gamers in Premier League and important to his club this season after his stunning performance towards leaders Manchester city and Arsenal.
