Steps are being taken to address poor performance of the Black Stars – GFA assures Ghanaians

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has issued a statement to apologise for the disappointment caused by the Black Stars at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

In its statement, the Ghana FA said it “extends our sincerest apologies to the good people of Ghana and all stakeholders for the recent disappointing performance of the senior national team, the Black Stars at the Africa Cup of Nations Cote D’Ivoire 2023.”

The association further assures that since the exit of the Black Stars from the AFCON, steps have already been taken to address the issues.

“Following a meeting of the Executive Council of the Association and Chairmen of the RFAs on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, the GFA wishes to assure all stakeholders that the requisite steps are being taken to address the issues at hand, and a thorough review of the team’s strategies, training, compensation, and overall structure is underway.

“We value the unwavering support of our stakeholders, and we commit to working tirelessly with you to ensure a stronger and more competitive team. Your loyalty and passion are the driving forces behind our efforts to rebuild and elevate the standard of Ghanaian football,” parts of the GFA statement said.

It added, “We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time and remain dedicated to restoring the pride and success we all desire for the Ghana Black Stars. Together, we will emerge stronger and more resilient.”

Already, the Ghana FA has set up a committee to find a new head coach for the Black Stars.

The committee has set February 2 as the deadline for applications from interested coaches.
