Black Stars player, Thomas Partey says negative comments about the team will not stop their ambition of reaching far in the ongoing FIFA World Cup.
According to him, criticisms from Ghanaians rather push the players to perform well, adding that the team will not pay much attention to such criticisms.
The Arsenal midfielder speaking in an interview said, “when we win a game opinions are different when we lose opinions are also different but in the end, those who support you are those who demand more from you, and for us, it is a lesson.”
“We are used to negative comments and in the end, we understand their opinions and demands. Sometimes it pushes you, and sometimes when you give too much attention to it you forget about yourself but you have to keep pushing yourself,” he added.
Meanwhile, Ghana is playing against Uruguay on Friday, December 2, 2022.
Friday’s game is critical for both teams. Ghana must win or draw to advance to the knockout stage, while Uruguay must win to stay alive.
Some Ghanaians see the game as an ideal opportunity for the Black Stars to exact revenge by defeating the South Americans and knocking them out of the competition.
