Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu has questioned Alhaji Grusah if he would advise him to play for Ghana if he was his son.
The King Faisal owner was sent by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to speak to the 22-year-old center-back who has not played for Ghana at any level but is bossing it to the admiration of many in the Premier League this season.
The GFA has tried on several occasions to get the former Real Valladolid man play for the Black Stars but he has always insisted he’s not ready to play for Ghana yet.
Former Ghana coach Charles Akonnor visited him during his tour of Europe but failed in his attempt to convince him commit to Ghana.
Salisu’s reason for not wanting to play for Ghana is not known by many but several attempts have been made to convince him play for Ghana without success.
“The Black Stars Chairman tasked me to speak to Salisu because he’s from Kumasi,” he told Atinka FM, as quoted by Saddick Adams.
“I called his dad and he linked me to him. Salisu flatly told me to stay away from his matter. He questioned me that if he was my son, would I advise him to play for Ghana?
“I’m not the only person who has spoken to him. I know CK Akunnor went to him, he said he won’t play.
“Even the GFA President said he found where his mother stays and went to her. I don’t know what happened but Salisu is not ready to play.
“He was angry when I called him. He insisted several times that I should stay out of the matter because he doesn’t want to have any problem with me.
“I’m not going to involve myself in his matter again. I don’t know the problem he has with the GFA but I will not call him again.”
