Mark Addo, the vice president of the Ghana Football Association, has stated that the FA contacted Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu about his availability for Ghana’s match against Nigeria.
According to him, the player told the Black Stars’ management that he was not ready to play for the country and that he needed more time to make his decision.
He added that while the player is keeping quiet about his decision to play for the Black Stars, Ghanaians should be calm since management is working hard to persuade him.
“I don’t want to get into too many details, but there have been engagements as to whether he is ready now or not,” he explained.
In an interview with Kessben FM, Mark Addo said, “Moreover, the moment will come if he is ready, and the determination will be made.”
When asked why some players were left out of the Black Stars roster, Mark Addo, who is also the head of the Black Stars Management Committee, said it was due to injury.
“Players like Kamaldeen are injured, with a back issue,” he stated. Baba has a knee injury, Jordan has covid, and he was due for a new test. Semenyo was invited, but on Saturday he was injured.”
