Wakaso reveals Partisan politics destroying Ghana football
Tough-talking Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has revealed that the Black Stars in recent years struggle to achieve any international glory due to the way party politics have crept into the senior national team.
The 2013 AFCON Best Player says party politics has ruined the game in the West African country such that opposition parties do not wish the success of the team.
The industrious midfielder insists the NPP-NDC partisan approach to things in the country has broken the unity in the Black Stars creating factions in the team.
In an interview on Angel TV in Accra, Wakaso said none of the parties in opposition wish the team well because the ruling party will claim the glory.
“I will speak the truth today. Do you know our problem about the game? He asked.
“Maybe we know but we don’t want to say it. But I think politics ruins the Blacks Stars at times. When NDC is in power, NPP doesn’t want us to win and vice versa,” Wakaso told Angel TV.
The destruction of Ghana’s various national teams due to party politics was first raised by editor of footballmadeinghana.com, Sheikh Tophic Sienu, who hinted leadership of the dangers of the creeping state of politics in the countries football.
