Yahaya Mohammed has been left surprised by coach CK Akonnor’s decision not to include him in his exclusive domestic player call-ups to the Black Stars.
The Aduana FC striker was conspicuously missing from the list of 32 players named by the Ghana senior national team head coach to begin preparations towards next month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome.
“I was surprised my name was not on the list,” Yahaya said in a reaction to Happy FM.
“Consistency-wise, I am always on the list of top scorers for the past seasons in the Ghana Premier League.
“I know the coach has a plan for me but if not I will be very disappointed. Maybe CK wants me to wait and assess other players before he hands me a call-up. They haven’t spoken to me though.
“I should have earned a call-up if they were calling local-based players.”
“I would play a major role in camp due to my experience and also other duties which will even make the work of the coach easy,” he added.
Yahaya Mohammed has not enjoyed a consistent run of games so far in the ongoing 2020/21 GPL campaign due to injuries. The 33-year-old has however scored 6 goals in the 10 games he has featured in for Aduana.
