‘Forget about Qatar 2022 and focus on long-term planning’ – Ex- Sports Minister tells Black Stars

Former Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye has advised the GFA and the Black Stars management team to forget about Qatar 2022 World Cup.

According to the outspoken former minister who is also the member of parliament for Odododiodoo constituency, Ghana must focus on long-term planning — building a team.

“I will subscribe to ditching the World Cup campaign,” he told Umaru Sanda on Citi TV’s Face to Face show.

“We cannot achieve results with this current mentality and strategy where we invite players, assemble them to play a match and leave.

“We should plan and build a national team where we have a structure to teams in the lower categories.

“We should set targets for the next 20 years for our teams winning the world cup at different levels.

“We should have a technical structure and have a director to draw up programs for the entire set up to make use of,” he stated.

The Black Stars have made a poor start in the Qatar 2020 qualifications, currently sitting at 3rd place after winning and losing their first two matches.
