Coach of Black Stars, C.K Akonnor says that he will consider Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu when the player is ready to play for Ghana.

He turned down a call up to the Black Stars last year during the AFCON 2021 qualifier making it clear he does not want to play for his motherland for now. “He is somebody who I have watched for some time now. We understand he is doing well but in his area of the position we have a lot of players that we are satisfied with”, Akonnor said at the press conference.

“We don’t have much of a problem in his position so we would look at him when he is ready”, he added.
