Black Stars goalkeeper Razak Brimah has issued an apology for his unsavoury comments against people who have labeled him a bad goalkeeper.
Brimah, who is first choice goalkeeper of senior national team, in a post on his Facebook wall stated that the words he used were “unacceptable and offensive” and did not represent his true values.
The shotstopper on Monday, a day after producing some fine saves for Ghana against DR Congo, posted a video on Facebook, hurling insults on his critics.
He later deleted the video after facing backlash from some fans who called for his immediate expulsion from the team’s camp in Gabon before issuing the apology.
See below Brimah’s apology:
I have reflected over some comments I made this morning on Facebook and I wish to render my sincere apologies for this unguarded comments.
I accept that as an ambassador for my country Ghana and a role model for many across the globe, I should not have reacted this way even in the face of the insults directed at my mother.
The words I used are unacceptable and offensive and does not represent my true values. I hope the general public will accept my apology as I focus on helping the Black Stars win the African Cup of Nations title. I also want to use this opportunity to thank the fans for the overwhelming support they have given the Black Stars that has helped us to reach this stage of the competition.
