The Director of Communications at the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum, has urged Ghanaians to maintain their composure and give the Black Stars’ technical staff their support in the hopes that things will improve quickly.

In an interview with Akoma FM, Henry Asante acknowledged the difficulties facing the team following their underwhelming performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and emphasized the value of allowing head coach Otto Addo time to put his plans and ideas into action.

“Ghanaians have experienced good times in the past, so when the team performs poorly, everyone is very concerned,” he said.

“But the team is led by a new technical team. Joseph Laumann, Joseph Paintsil, and Fatawu Dauda are supporting Otto Addo.

“I know these are difficult times, but let’s remain composed while the new team works diligently to return us to our rightful place.”

Asante Twum thinks Ghana will be competitive in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers once a full squad is assembled and the injured players return.

“We should have all of our players fully fit by the time the season ends, so I’m confident that we will be in a strong position to compete very soon. Kudus, Thomas, Amartey, Djiku, Gideon Mensah, and all of our key players are fit and healthy. I’m pleased for Inaki Williams, who won his first trophy with Athletic Bilbao over the weekend. It’s great for his self-confidence and mental health, and hopefully he can carry that over to the Black Stars.”

Focus will be on the upcoming assignment, which is in June when Ghana play Mali and the Central African Republic in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, as Addo keeps carrying out his plans for the team.
