Sivasspor midfielder, Isaac Cofie, has noted that the Black Stars are currently in transition and advocated for more time for the technical team to get their ideas across.
The Black Stars booked a place in the 2022 World Cup after beating Nigeria in a two-legged tie. Otto Addo and his charges have played two AFCON 2023 qualifiers matches and two friendlies, winning two so far.
They took third place in the Kirin Cup tournament after beating Chile 3-1 on penalties. Cofie believes the team has improved since the horror showing at the 2021 AFCON but time is needed.
“For me, I think the Black Stars are currently in transition. We’ve had our glory days and we’re going through difficult times but the leadership are doing whatever possible to bring us to where we deserve,” he stated on Warm-Up Plus on TV3.
“It has been very long [since I last played for Black Stars] but we always have to respect their decisions and support in every little way you can and when the opportunity comes, you can make good use of it.”
“I’m seeing a lot of improvement [in Black Stars] especially when you watch the games against Nigeria but it’s not going to be that quick. It will take time. The leadership will have to give the technical team some time to build a team they can trust that can perform and make Ghanaians proud. I think they are on the right path,” he added.
Cofie won the Turkish Cup trophy with Sivasspor in May and is expected to compete in the UEFA Europa League.
