Head coach of the Black Stars, Charles .K. Akunnor on an interview made a statement that Abdul Karim Salisu Mohammed was convinced in several attempts but was to no avail. He was convinced to join the national team several times but he didn’t make it to the call up .
The family of Abdul Karim Salisu Mohammed also revealed that their son is ever ready to play for the national team ,his mother Ghana. This is a great opportunity and good news for their son to join the national team ,to win every cup for the nation to make the nation proud, but their son Salisu did not reject any proposal of call up.
“We wish to state unequivocally that our son is a proud Ghanaian and ever ready to represent Ghana at every level and time. He is so much enthused to be associated with the Black Stars since it has been his dream to play for Ghana at the highest level.
“However, we have received media reports on the contrary and it is really disturbing that journalists failed to ascertain the truth of his absence from national duties.
“Salisu was indeed invited to play in the South Africa and São Tomé games for the African Cup qualification but he was slightly injured then. He did not want to represent his beloved country with a hidden injury,” the statement said.
“It is our wish that in subsequent matches of the Black Stars, our son will be available and represent the country. We hope this statement would put to rest the numerous media conjectures and rumours which are geared at creating dissatisfaction by Ghanaians against our son.
“Salisu Mohammed is committed to the course of helping Ghana win an African Cup and qualification to the World Cup once again” .
