Ghana has struggled with goalkeepers after the demise of Sammy Adjei & Richard Kingson – Abukari Damba

    Former Black Stars goalkeeper Abukari Damba has lamented about the state of Goalkeeping at the senior men’s national team.

    In the recent friendly games played by the Black Stars against Mali and Qatar, Lawrence Ati-Zigi of St. Gallen and Razak Abalora deputized in the absence of goaltender Richard Ofori.

    The aforementioned duo have come under a truckload of backlash for their performance in between the sticks leading to many calling on coach CK Akonnor to fall on goalkeepers from the country’s top flight.

    However, goalkeeper turned pundit, Abukari Damba believes the national team has been deficient in the goalkeeping department since the exit of Richard Kingson and Sammy Adjei.

    “After Sammy Adjei and Richard Kingson, the Black Stars have been always struggling to have a keeper who can control the defense, it took some time for Richard Ofori to have that command,” he told Elubo-based West 87.9 FM.

    He intimated that the two stop gaps for Ofori, Razak Abalora and Ati Zigi lack defensive command.

    “Razak Abalora and Lawrence Ati Zigi lack defensive command at the back and need more games to build up just as Richard Ofori who’s now first choice keeper”.

    He continued: “With this games, one can say that without Richard Ofori, the Black Stars team will find things difficult at the back”.

    Damba who thinks the new GFA Technical Director have a lot to do for Ghana football, has called him out to prepare a policy document which will help the various national teams, premier league, women’s league and juvenile football clubs.
