Afriyie Acquah to relaunch Black Stars career post COVID 19
Veteran Black Stars midfielder, Emmanuel Afriyie-Acquah is hoping for relaunch his Black Stars career when football finally does return after the COVID 19 pandemic.
Plying his trade with Turkish side, Yeni Malatyaspor, Afriyie- Acquah believes he still has a Black Stars future and is hoping there might be a spot up for grabs in the team.
The combative midfielder has missed out on all two of the Black Stars’ callups post AFCON 2019 but is hopeful of relaunching his career after the pandemic.
Speaking in an interview with Suncity radio, Afriyie-Acquah said;
I’m hoping to make a return to the national team despite missing the first call-up C.K Akonnor made,” Acquah told the Suncity Radio sports team.
“I believe I’m still in his plans because he had a limited or short time to name his squad for the Sudan double-header”
“I’m aware he went around Europe to monitor some of the players, so I hope he will give me the chance when the need arises.
Acquah first broke into the Black Stars team around 2013 and eventually made the squad to represent Ghana at the 2014 World Cup.
After one World Cup and three AFCON appearances, he seems to be on a patch where the callups aren’t happening for him but Acquah still believes it will happen for him.
