Rolling back the clock, on the eve of the 2019 African Cup of Nations the then head coach of the Black Stars, Kwesi Appiah stripped off the captaincy from Asamoah Gyan to Dede Ayew.
This caused a lot of brouhaha in the country and perhaps led to the worst performance of the Black Stars since 2008.
Kwesi Appiah has come under serious scrutiny after saying that the Black Stars captaincy should be rotated.
Former Black Stars player Frimpong Manso, who featured in the 1992 African Cup of Nations in Senegal shares his thoughts on the Black Stars captaincy saga.
In an interview with King Eben ‘The Boss Player’ on Wontumi Radio 101.3, Mayanga stressed on the way forward regarding to the captaincy of the Blackstars of Ghana.
“I don’t think captaincy should centre much on seniority, it must be the core mandate of the head coach to decide who has the capacity, capabilities and leadership qualities to captain the national team.” If you look at Liverpool, Van Djik came to meet a lot of players but he is the vice captain now.”
When asked whether the captaincy should be rotated as Kwesi Appiah thinks, he said ” I don’t believe rotation should be the best way to go. It must be given to a permanent and competent player.”
