Ex-Ghana goalie Ali Jaraah wants criticism on Nassamu Yakubu to stop

Monday 4th May , 2015 2:42 pm

Former Ghana goalie Ali Jaraah says it is unfair to criticise Black Stars goalkeeper’s trainer Nassamu Yakubu for Adam Kwarasey’s prolonged absence from the Black Stars.

The US-based goalkeeper has turned down numerous opportunities to represent the Black Stars after feeling unfairly treated at the World Cup in Brazil.

With Fatau Dauda, Razak Braimah all struggling to cement their position many have touted the Kwarasey as the ideal solution.

Kwarasey has however hinted of being unimpressed with Nassamu Yakubu’s training methods with many calling for the head of the trainer to pave a way for the smooth return of the Norwegian-born Ghana shot-stopper.

“In my honest opinion, I do not think that Nassamu is the problem. I think that we should have our best players play for us but we also need to improve those we have to.

The entire system is a continuous one and we all have to be careful not to set a bad precedence for the younger ones.

I see no reason why Nassamu is to be blamed not at all. I think people are being unfair on him,” Jarrah told Citi Sports in an interview on Monday.

Adam Kwarasey recently met with Black Stars coach Avram Grant in the United States to discuss the former Stromgodset goalie’s possible return to the national team.
