Italy-based midfielder Alfred Duncan has responded to comments made by Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kurt Okraku that he has turned down opportunities to play for the Black Stars in recent times.
Okraku sought to explain why some players weren’t included in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations squad following the Black Stars abysmal performance in the tournament, finishing bottom of Group C with one point.
“Alfred Duncan has had the opportunities to serve Ghana and he has not responded,” the GFA President told Accra-based Asempa FM.
“I don’t want to be picking on individual players but players who were ready to serve Ghana were selected to represent Ghana,” he added.
Okraku’s claims has prompted a response from Duncan, who wrote on Twitter, “People tarnishing my image in Ghana. I don’t want to start talking for Ghanaians to connect the dots so please let’s respect ourselves.”
Duncan is enjoying a great season with Fiorentina and judging by his performances, he could have easily been a starter in Cameroon.
Duncan has played 18 league games, scoring one and assisting two for Fiorentina, who are sixth in Serie A.
