Otto Addo addresses discipline concerns in Ghana’s camp

Otto Addo has addressed concerns regarding discipline within the Ghanaian squad, following the dismissal of two players during the friendly against Uganda.

While praising the players’ off-pitch conduct, the national team coach emphasizes the importance of maintaining discipline on the field to avoid unnecessary yellow and red cards.

The coach stresses the need for players to play with intelligence and composure while acknowledging the need for improvement in this aspect.

It can also be recalled that Jerome Opoku was also sent off in the 2-1 defeat to Nigeria last Friday.

Speaking to, Otto Addo touched on lessons from the two games, having finished both games with red cards.

”This is what we also have to work on, whatever I was not happy with the decision at all and don’t want to go into the details. But surely we have to learn out of this. I think the discipline off the pitch in this camp was very good but the discipline on the pitch to play to good, play hard but with intelligence and not getting silly yellow and red cards.

This discipline has to be much better and this is something we addressed after the match which we have to work on and the most important thing is that the players learn out of this. We made a lot of changes also in the second game and for me it was important coming new, having being there two years on to see where the players are standing and to give players a chance as much as I can.

For me it was a good lesson, I got a lot of answers on too many questions, a lot of questions on my mind have been answered and this is good and positive. We have to work on it now. We will monitor the players in the next two months before we have the upcoming World Cup qualifiers and we hope that they will learn from their mistakes from today.”
