Felix Annan unperturbed by Black Stars snub
Asante Kotoko safest pair of hands Felix Annan is not perturbed by his persistent snub by Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah.
The 23-year-old has been an undisputed starter for the Porcupine Warriors since returning from a loan stint at West African Football Academy in 2016.
The agile custodian was hailed by coaches and pundits following his superlative performance for the Reds in their 1-1 draw against his former side WAFA in the Premier League opener at the Sogakofe Stadium.
Despite his ever-superb form for Kotoko, Annan is yet to earn a call up into the Ghana senior national team, the Black Stars but he insists he's not too bothered by his continues snub
“I am not too worried when I don’t get Black Stars calls ups because I believe in time and patience. Every call up made by the coaches has to be accepted since they know players they want for every assignment. All I want to do is keep working hard and I know my chance will surely come,” Annan told footballmadeinghana.com.
“I am a person who loves to learn and do a lot of research about good things that helps me to improve. I learn a lot from top Goalkeepers but I grew up taking Van Der Sar as my role model. I believe I can get even better and reach that status one day. ”
Annan was also on top form saving four penalties in the CAF Confederation Cup exit to CARA Brazzaville in a two legged fixture.
He is expected to man the post when Inter Allies visits on Sunday in the match day 2 of the Ghana Premier League.
