Kurt Okraku: I know fans are disappointed but we still need their support to win

Kurt Okraku, the President of the Ghana Football Association(GFA), has called on Ghanaian football fans to continue to rally their support for the Black Stars despite the disappointing 3-0 defeat to Mali on Friday.

Many fans were anticipating the team to be back in action since the Black Stars had not been in action for nearly a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Coach CK Akonnor showcased a poor performance which saw them suffer at the hands of their Malian opponents in Turkey.

Kurt Okraku, however, has acknowledged the teams defeat but is very optimistic of the team’s success in the future with the support of fans.

The GFA president, speaking to an Accra-based FM station, said “I know that by way of results Ghanaians as competitive as we are, we are disappointed in the results. But the key essence is that is the platform to engage, to analyse and to see what is possible and what is not possible in going into the future.”

In rallying support for the team, Kurt Okraku said, “We plead with everyone to be very supportive, I know Ghanaians love their national team. We want them to win every game but we will come to that stage, we will be sure about the personnel to rely on in competitions.”

“We need the prayers and support of everyone, football is a team sport, no man can do it alone. I’m very positive about the future of Ghana football. We need the support of everyone in good times and bad times. When the going is tough, we need your support more to be spiritually and physically behind the team so that we can be able to go through the turbulence and to be victorious,” Kurt Okraku said.
