The former Deportivo Alaves combative midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has vowed the two biggest and favourite political parties in the country (NPP & NDC), should be blamed for the Black Stars long trophy drought. He disclosed this in an interview with Angel TV in Accra.
The senior men’s national team, Black Stars have gone massive 38 years without winning any trophy. In fact the last Ghana clinched the Africa Cup of Nations was back in 1982 when they humbled host nation Libya to win the title.
Since then, the Black Stars have played several AFCON competitions and have come close to winning on three occasions but failed in all those attempts. Ghana lost two titles to Cote D’Ivoire in both Senegal 1992 and Equatorial Guinea 2015 all via penalty shootouts. Also, they missed out narrowly to Egypt in Angola 2010.
With this, the Chinese based midfielder has stated the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are to be blamed since the ones in opposition always don’t want to see the national team win when they ain’t in power. He told Angel TV.
“I will speak the truth today, do you know our problem about the game? Maybe we know but we don’t want to say it but I think politics ruins the Blacks Stars at times.
“When NDC is in power, NPP doesn’t want us to win and vice versa. We have to support the team with unity like how we are fighting this virus and take politics out.
“Me for instance, I don’t care about NDC NPP because I haven’t voted before”, he added.
Since making his Black Stars debut appearance in 2012, Wakaso can boost of 58 outings with 12 goals to his belt. Also, at club level, the 29 year old just completed a switch from Laliga side Alaves to Chinese Super Ligue outfit Jiangsu Suning.
