‘No problem if I’m never called up to Black Stars again,’ proud Agyemang Badu says

Midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu feels fulfilled by his achievements after representing Ghana at the international level for over a decade now, saying he would have no qualms about being overlooked for any further call-up.

Badu, 29, has not been considered for selection into the Black Stars team since his last outing at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

The Udinese player, currently on loan at Hellas Verona in the Italian Serie A, has won over 80 caps for the Ghana senior national team in over a decade.

Expressing satisfaction about his international career, Badu told Citi TV:

“I have played for the national team for 10 years.

“I have won the U-20 Afcon, the U-20 World Cup.

“I have featured five times in the Afcon, twice in the finals and three times in the semifinals.

“I have played in the world cup and racked up 87 games for the national team with 11 goals.

“My goal has been nominated for a Puskas award so even if I am never called up to the national team, my family is proud of me and I am proud of myself.

“The national team has given me a good platform,” he added.

Emmanuel Agyemang Badu recovered from a pulmonary embolism earlier this season and is hoping to play a key role for Hellas Verona as the Serie A resumes after a COVID-19-forced break this week.
