Ghana Football Association president, Kurt Okraku has condemned journalists booing of Black Stars players at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Ivory Coast.
Reporters expressed their fury after the senior national team gave away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against Mozambique, which ultimately kicked the West Africans out of the tournament.
“I share the pain of every Ghanaian on the back of our poor performance of our Black Stars at the AFCON. I also share in the pain of colleague journalists that their lifespan was cut short due to our early exit,” Okraku said at the Meet the Press in Kumasi.
“But I do not share in the act of booing our players. As journalists, we have been trained to support and report on our national team, I pray and hope that this singular act will never be repeated.”
The FA chairman also revealed that collective effort is needed to revitalize the Black Stars after back-to-back group-stage eliminations from the Africa Cup of Nations.
