Ghanaian striker Majeed Waris’ agent Yussif Chibsah has slammed the Black Stars technical team ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.
This comes after the FC Porto striker was dropped from the Ghana squad stating that it was unprofessional for the striker to hear of his axing from the media.
Waris, who was on loan at French side Nantes from Portuguese giants FC Porto last season, was left out of Ghana’s 23-man squad for the 2019 AFCON finals.
“It was always not going to be easy to be left out of the final squad for the Afcon but the Coach and his technical team has the final authority over the team”, Chibsah told Ashhfm.
“Majeed Warris was disappointed for his exclusion when he saw the news circulating on social media before he was informed officially.
“Majeed Waris locked himself up in his room because he was in a bad mood after seeing it on social media,so that was why he refused to open the door when someone knocked,” he added.
“Ideally, it is the technical team that informs players of their exclusion from the team but it will depend on the channel of communication in the team.”
Ghana are in Group F alongside Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
