The President of Techiman City FC, Charles Kwadwo Ntim, known as Mickey Charles say most of the supporters’ government flew to Egypt were against the Black Stars, hunting that Ghanaians country are not united to win a trophy.
Government of Ghana flew over 500 supporters to Egypt to support the Black Stars to win the AFCON and to also end Ghana’s 37 years trophy drought. Unfortunately, Ghana was knocked out in the round of 16.
According to Mickey Charles, who was part of the team, says he saw some supporters cheering against the Black Stars and wondered how this attitude could win a trophy. “We shouldn’t blame James Kwesi Appiah for not winning the trophy.”
Speaking on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Micky Charles said, “some of the supporters were cheering against the Black Stars in Egypt”.
“Government has flown supporters to Egypt to support the team and yet most of them were against the team. I saw some supporters cheering against the national team”.
“In football, you sometimes need a bit of luck to win the tournament and that luck doesn’t rest only with the 11 or 22 players”, he said.
