Mohamed Salisu Finally Agrees To Play For Ghana

In a show of the highest degree of patriotism, aggrieved top centre-back Mohamed Salisu has agreed to play for Ghana national team, the Black Stars.

The Southampton defender had been turning down the proposals each time the Ghana Football Association (GFA) approached him without giving out proper reasons.

But after the behind the scenes charm offensive by GFA president Kurt Okraku, the defender has agreed to put country before self.

A post by Okraku on his official Facebook page indicated that Salisu has availed himself for selection for the upcoming Black Stars matches.

“Great seeing you with that big smile…Proud son of the land who is proud to give back what football has given him…Ready to serve and looking forward to our common future with all the positive energy in you. God bless our homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong,” Okraku wrote on his official Facebook page.

It’s rumored  that the star had turned out invitation to play for the West African nation due to fear of ‘juju’ and some decisions by the handlers of U-17 teams in the past.

Salisu earned his maiden invitation for a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in November 2020.

He withdrew from the squad citing an injury before being shockingly left out of a 23-man roster for a Nations Cup qualifying clash with Sudan in March last year.
