President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku, has defended the decision of leaving out Elizabeth Addo from Black Queens squad saying it was the decision of the technical team.
The Black Queens skipper was left out of the squad for the 2022 AWCON qualifiers against Nigeria.
Addo, 28, who plays for Swedish side Djugardens IF, expressed worry over Ghana’s preparations for the Women’s Afcon qualifiers on Twitter in June this year.
The decision to leave the experienced midfielder out of the squad attracted a lot of criticisms but Mr Okraku insists he sees nothing wrong with the decision of the technical team.
“It is very normal for people who go wayward to speak up and do so in the public domain,” Mr Okraku reiterated.
“The decision to exclude her [Elizabeth Addo] is the sole decision of the technical team.
“As Jose Mourinho says, I am prepared to speak about players that are with me than players who are not,” he added.
As a result of her actions, Elizabeth Addo was left out of Ghana’s squad for the Aisha Buhari Cup and later missed out on Ghana’s 2022 AWCON qualifier against Nigeria – a tie Ghana lost 2-1.
