2021 AFCON: Bernard Tekpetey believes unity will be key to success for Black Stars

Bulgaria-based striker Bernard Tekpetey has backed Black Stars to have a successful 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and added that unity will be key in their attempts to win the trophy.

Tekpetey, a member of the 2017 Afcon squad, will not be in Cameroon next year, but he is rooting for his countrymen to win the tournament for the first time since 1982.

The forward is happy with the players who have been called up, saying that they have the qualities to be champions, but it is impossible without unity.

“I think we have quality players. For me, it’s good that the squad has a great mix of experience and youth,” Tekpetey said on Onua TV.

“What we need now is that players will work together to achieve the same goal. There should be no separation.”

“I believe with unity they will deliver for Ghanaians.”

With five goals in 13 league games this season, Tekpetey had hopes of being invited by coach Milovan Rajevac.

Of the five attackers in the squad, only Benjamin Tetteh (7 goals) and Benjamin Tetteh (6 goals) have found the net more times than Tekeptey this season.
