Southampton Star Salisu Reverses Decision To Play For Ghana Against Super Eagles

Southampton Star Salisu Reverses Decision To Play For Ghana Against Super Eagles

Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu has changed his mind after initially agreeing to play for the Black Stars of Ghana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against perennial rivals Nigeria.

According to Ghanasoccernet.com Salisu has been angered by one of the Ghana Football Association (GFA)’s judicial body’s decision to consider a protest by a club contesting the status of the player which previously affected his club career.

The powerful defender has now been forced to reject the chance of playing for Ghana in the two-legged playoffs.

Salisu had finally decided to play for Ghana after several months of engagement by several Ghana FA officials and the approach of coaches Otto Addo and Chris Hughton.

After he rejected several calls from Ghana, the engagement of the two coaches seemed to have brought about a change of reluctance toward the Black Stars which led to the public declaration by his relative that he will finally play for Ghana.

Ghana will host the Super Eagles in the first leg on March 25 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The reverse fixture will take place four days later at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.

Who in his right senses would want to play for a country and team where juju, wickedness, hate, jealousy are the order of the day?? . I cant fathom the attraction. So, my dear sali, better steer clear else them go deal with u with their juju, hate and wickedness.

  • Oakfield great to hear from you bro

  • Ghana isn’t prepared for these fixtures even the coach is yet to name his squad and the game is weeks to come. And about Salisu I don’t think he is worth all this, he doesn’t have daul nationality so he just dislike the idea of playing for Ghana

  • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

    Selfmade or Ghanamade that came here ranting is a very big example of cowardice, a country that reasonable people has deserted the idiot is here making noise. Shameless idiot the frustration no be here!

    • The guy trouble is too much apart from partey he should mention any Ghanaian doing good at the moment, even their sulemani hasn’t sparked during and after the afcon so only partey and the guy dey scream, at least Nigerians are now doing okay expect from those at Watford and our other keepers expect form okoye the rest are doing considerably okay

        What they know is playing ball with physical strength with suspended Brian.

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          U surely about this

          U want to read about this article written by no other than SEGUN, the legendarily Nigerian footballer

          We show u how to play football and segun knows it

          Read this article and educate ur ignorant self

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          Read this article and educate ur ignorant self lol

          I know u don’t have 24/7 electricity and hence can’t read enough to broaden ur horizons so l ll help u here haha

          This is an article written by SEGUN so read it

          As a result of the harsh economic conditions in Ghana in the late 1960s and early 1970s hundreds of Ghanaian footballers flooded the Nigerian league. The best of them were in every big club in the country from Mighty Jets of Jos, to Stationary Stores of Lagos, to Shooting Stars of Ibadan and even up to Sharks Football Club of Port Harcourt. It was very easy to distinguish them at that time because of the flair and flamboyance they brought to the game. Most of them were showmen. Unlike the typical Nigerian football player that played only with speed and power, the Ghanaians played the short passing game, with plenty of exhibitionism, and a certain air that verged on ‘arrogance‘. Their influence was greatest in clubs like Stationary Stores and Shooting Stars at the time, both of which had a large number of these Ghanaian players in their squads. Their football became markedly entertaining, stylish and attractive to watch. Within a few years this impacted very much on Nigerian football generally. The mix of the Ghanaian style of football with the indigenous Nigerian style evolved into a new generation of players with power, speed, individual skills and style. That‘s why and how Nigerian football caught up with and even overtook Ghanaian football – as a result of the fusion of these two different football characteristics. Ghana‘s football resembled that of Brazil, whilst Nigerian football was grounded in the typical kick-and-rush style of the English.

          Ghanaian players in

          the Green Eagles

          Many Ghanaian players became so integrated into the Nigerian environment that many of them ended up playing for Nigeria without the authorities being able to (or chose to disregard) separate their nationalities. That‘s how Willie Andrews, Yakubu Mambo, Baba #$% Mohammed, Johnny Orlando, Phillip Boamah, Raymond Quakopone, Sani Mohammed, Leotis Boateng, Mohammed Lawal, Adokwa Laryea, and so on came to play in Nigeria and for the national team, the Green Eagles. There were many others in clubs across the length and breadth of Nigeria, playing and raising the standard of the domestic game: Joe Appiah, Edward Ansah, Joseph Carr, Arthur Moses, John Benson, Husseini Alabi (a Nigerian, but born and raised in Ghana), and so on.

          Back to Annas Ahmed

          Annas Ahmed was one of that army of imports. He came with a flair that was very uncharacteristic of a defender. He played football like one dancing, very elegant and graceful on the ball, and a beauty to watch. He floated his passes with such exquisite delicacy that the ball would ‘hang‘ in the air as if begging for a head to connect. That‘s where some of us, good with our heads, thrived! I scored many a memorable goal with those floating passes, particularly at training sessions.

          Annas was one of the two pillars of the Raccah Rovers defence in their most glorious years. The other was Ahmed Abubakar, who has relocated to the US and now lives in New York.

          In Kano to see Annas

          So when Shefiu Mohammed told me last week that Annas was in Kano, I was so excited and curious I could not wait to see him. We had a remarkable reunion, just the three of us, over lunch in my hotel reminiscing over past times. Annas has a remarkable memory. He remembered every single detail of our times in camp recalling them with glee and amusement. His passion for the game (the stylish one) still remained as he lamented the lack of focus on that aspect in the development of the present players. Annas has not changed much except for the forest of grey hair on his head. He still walks with a shuffle as if there is a spring in his feet. So, how has he been doing all these years? He simply retired into the cocoon of his own narrow interest – wood work and design. He has been working for a Lebanese-Nigerian in Kano, assisting with the wood work and beautification of his hotel. He has not been involved in any aspect of football (not even watching) for a long while. He often tells his children stories about himself and some of us when he sees us on television. Otherwise, he has been away from football.

          Life may not be a bed of roses for him but he is doing okay. He would love to still do something in the game like teaching young kids some skills and techniques.

          So, I am thinking. Where in the football firmament in Nigeria would an Annas Ahmed fit into? I think I have the answer and I have told him so. He is excited. I guess the next few months will tell if I am right or wrong. But which way, any way, it was truly a delight to meet up with one of the great Ghanaian players that helped in the development of Nigerian football to the levels that we have attained today.

          As for his kingship, he has passed that on to his son who has relocated to Ghana and is now being groomed to assume the position. His son, after his studies, will ascend the throne of his forefathers!

        • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

          Ghana made you know what I’m talking about. When it comes to class Naija is more superior that is why you’re Pained. I can’t imagine Davido’s mother driving Toyota talkless of Kia. Yet you guys always quick to raise shoulders with your seniors. You know I gat you here!!!

    • Toheeb 2 years ago

      Ghana people are fund of comparing themselves to our beloved Nigerians
      I remembered my time in Ghana when some Ghana boys assembled and were arguing that Kidi is better than Wizkid not even before I open my mouth to interfere 2 little boys were singing wizkid song with Beyoncé Brown skin girl

      • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

        KWAISA, at least they can’t gather unlikely ur filthy, lightless and dirty country where the kids can’t gathered because BOKOM and kidnappers ll either bomb them or kidnap them lol

        U classless, filthy ZOOGERIAN ANIMAL Loll

  • Richie 2 years ago

    No one should take the confusion in the Ghana camp for weakness oh……just so you know, these people could have another thing coming; you can see how they’re withholding the release of their final squad list until 4 days to kick-off, well, you might say this Salisu’s issue might be one of the reasons for doing so, but then, let the other team not go to sleep over this! Cos this is football, and ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN if you’re not careful.
    Let’s not just conclude we would steamroll over these seemingly “dim” Black Stars! The game of football can be indeed funny sometimes.

    Super Eagles; DO THE NEEDFUL

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      U smart unlike these generator infused idiots here lol!!

      The smart ones always are humble

      The rest of the idiots here has an iq comparable to a cage baboon hahha

      They ll see the MIGHTY GHANA that’ll turn out in cape coast

      • Toheeb 2 years ago

        What I actually know during my time in Ghana is that the Ghanaian hate Nigerians a lot to the extent that they police will fly the fence of Nigerians to go inside the house and arrest innocent foreigners because the Neibough were jealous I think this is an opportunity to let them know that we’re better than them in every aspect of life
        Let the super eagles win them in their domot and disgrace the black star people later in Abuja
        I want the attacking combination of Osimhen,Iheanacho,Simon to score 4 in cape coast and let Etebo,Ndidi,And Aribo to be key in keeping the ball possesion
        And let our 2 central Leon Balogun and Ekong production a white central defense performance no staining let Zaidu sanusi and Ola Aina play from wing back
        This match is 4-0 first leg at Ghana home
        Write it down

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      These idiots here didn’t even know that, when Ghana beat Nigeria in 1992 afcon, abedi pele name was missing from the list till we met on the field !! The Nigerian squad was shocked to see him knowing he was among

      Ghana taught Nigeria how to play football and hence we have all the tricks to beat u always in a DERBY haha

      Just we ll shut ur way one, tactless team in Kumasi

      • Trick that can not win you an AFCON Trophy for more than 30 years now and still counting.

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          There’s a difference between a tournament and qualifier lol

          I have already said it, most it these Nigerian bloggers here have an IQ COMPARABLE TO A PRISON DOOR KNOB lol

          They can’t reason beyond their hairy noses haha

          That’s why am here to pump some GHANAIAN SENSE AND SMARTNESS into ur brains that has been destroyed by the generator fumes u have been inhaling in ur one NAIJA FAILED COUNTRY hahah

          Tricks don’t worked in a tournament but it surely does in a two leg qualifiers heheh

          Grow some BRAIN CELLS dude

          • Larry 2 years ago

            Imagine trick don’t work in a tournament,but it surely does in a two leg tournament. That kind of a trick is useless. No wonder Ghanaian football is dead.

      • That was 1992 bro. This time around, you’ll be the one to eat what you’re cooking.

      Grow some brain cells because ur brains are over simplified haha

  • Yeboah 2 years ago

    Ghana does not need footballers born in white man’s land. We use our African born players.
    We are not like Nigeria that 90% of their players are borrowed from other countries. Thy are not even Nigerian citizens. I can name them for you:

    1) Your captain is a white man ( I mean the defender that plays for Watford)
    2) You have two other defenders that look like white men (one of them played from the right side of defence in the last Nations cup)
    3) Even your basket goal keeper is also half white man
    4) Alex (the former Arsenal man) is a British citizen
    5) Even Aina (I think he is also a defender), though he is black and have African name, is also from Europe
    Etc etc
    And I know that one other player has just agreed to play for Nigeria though they are foreign Nationals.
    It is because you people are borrowing your players from outside Africa that is why you are complaining about the grass in our stadium. You can take the game to England if you like. The Black Stars can shine anywhere.
    The Black Stars are the true representation of African blood.

    • Ndubest 2 years ago

      Be comforting yourself. Truth be told you guys are going to lose this match up

    • footballfanatic 2 years ago

      No they don’t have Nigerian blood in them…..They have alien blood from saturn….Abeg ignore this monkey eating retard like their posts don’t exist..

    • TopShotta 2 years ago

      Just because the black stars have failed in their recruitment drive doesn’t mean you should take it out on us..The NFF is doing a great job in convincing them to play…We almost had Abraham and Saka
      Your federation the GFA isn’t doing enough..they are incompetent… gone are the days where your local talents were enough
      Even though they’re half Nigerians,They are still Nigerians
      You should vent all your anger towards the GFA for failing at their scouting and recruitment

    • pompei 2 years ago

      What of Kevin Prince Boateng?
      Djiku, Wollacott your goalie, Schlupp, are they Ghana-born players?
      You conveniently forgot about these ones?
      So it’s ok for Ghana to use their foreign-born players, but you cry foul when Nigeria does the same thing?
      Confusion is a bad thing!

      • Toheeb 2 years ago

        This Ghana team was lucky to have missed playing the new generation of super eagles
        Let them tell our coach
        Not to go there and look for a draw
        I always like our former coach the white man
        But nonetheless there’s no hidden place for this worst Ghana team of all time

        • Toheeb 2 years ago

          If Super eagles win Ghana 2-0 in cape coast I consider that as failure
          Ghana is one of the worst national team in west Africa now
          I can’t remember any big name player in Ghana now except Partey
          The two Ayew are O2 big one
          Strikers that can not score a goal for a full year
          And is still their captain
          Yeye nation

    • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

      Even Black man Afena Gyan Of Roma your only reasonable winger that will play in our u20 is rejecting Ghana because of Juju. So is he also foreign born. Villagers you guys are too low in IQ to further conversation.

            There are not a lot of Nigerians on this forum because they have no LIGHT to stroll the web because of NEPAD and hence Ghanaians has taken the advantage to make this website lively haha

            How can Nigerians come to this forum when they don’t have any light haha!!

            Thank God that SMART GHANAIAN like the KING is here to cause this Z RATED forum some traffic hehehe

            Ur sad face like SUSPENSION LETTER heheh

  • Larry 2 years ago

    You use your African Players? So what of Djiku, Schullp, Kofi-Kyerreh, even KP Boateng and Appiah?. You don’t need players from Europe,yet you’re trying to convince Hudson Odoi and Nketiah to play for you. Most Successful team in Africa use players that are raised in Europe. E.g Senegal has: Koulibaly,Diallo, Bourna Sarr, Nampaly Mendy, Benjamin Mendy, Papi Gueye, etc. AS well as Ivory Coast who has:Haller, Pepe ,Zaha, Conet,Gbamin, Akpa Akpro,etc. Even teams like Algeria has Mahrez, Ounas , benramah,Bennacer etc. Even Cameroon too does have foreign raised players in their team; and these teams are doing well in Africa. Maybe Ghana need good foreign raised players to start doing well. maybe those guys are scared of playing for Ghana because Ghanaian football is dead already,or because of Juju. Charlie, you’re just pointless. Chop you L and sit down let reasonable people talk.

    • footballfanatic 2 years ago

      Ignore this lunatic typing from a psych unit in Accra….The bastard has not had kenkey today lol…The dude basically lives on this sports page now. Useless pig. Your eyes go open when caf moves the first leg to a neutral venue due to the dirty nonsense pitch you guys were about to parade….
