President of Ghana Football Association(GFA), Kurt Okraku has accepted blames for the abysmal performance and early exit of Black Stars in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

The senior soccer team Black Stars of Ghana crashed out of the ongoing AFCON with a humiliating defeat to Comoros on Tuesday evening.

The team was expected to win the game to advance their chance of qualifying to the next stage of the competition after losing to Morocco in their first game and drawing with Gabon.

After their exit, a lot of Ghanaians descended heavily on them with a section calling for the dismissal of the head coach Milovan Rajevac.

But Okraku says he should be given the blame for the team’s poor showing in Cameroon.

“Our plans did not happen at the tournament, is unfortunate and this not what Ghanaians deserve. Ghanaians deserve a very very competitive team, a team that will bring glory to the country a team that will bring happiness to our people,” the GFA president said on Asempa FM.

“It didn’t work. I’m a leader of the family, I take full responsibility but also our collective responsibility to remain calm to support this gallant… or players who have offered themselves to serve our country.

“They need support so they can grow and win trophies for Ghana. For those who were not ready to serve Ghana we cannot force them, of course, these are the players who have dedicated themselves to the national calls and who want to sacrifice even in difficulties and I’m saying this group of players were ready to sacrifice their blood for Ghana.”
