Ghana legend Mohamed Polo says Balck Stars coach Charles Akonnor must select players who are ready to "die" for each other to achieve success with the team.

The 46-year-old replaced his former boss James Kwesi Appiah in early January on a two-year deal.

Coach CK Akonnor has been tasked to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations as well as qualifying the team to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

According to the Mohammed Polo, Akonnor’s decision to adopt the style of play of the 1978 Black Stars squad that won the Africa Cup of Nations, proves he’s ready to transfer the Black Stars team.

However, he will require a set of committed players who are willing to sacrifice for each other.

"He must select players who are ready to die for each other. He must have a team that cares less about who the captain is, who the goalkeeper or the top scorer," he told Ashh FM.

"This is the only his squad will play like a team because in our time we were playing like a team.

Mohammed Polo added, "He must also ensure there is enough competition in the team. Only players in good form are selected."

"In our time, there was a lot of competition in the team and that is one of the reasons that made us a formidable side."
