Assistant Head coach of Black Meteors, Michael Osei, has defended their decision for ‘camping’ and ‘dropping’ local based players for foreign based players.
Speaking with Atinka Fm’s Sports Team, Former Asante Kotoko Midfielder said “The teams we are going to face are active and have prepared for more than five(5) months, so we can’t gamble and use our local based players for such international tournament, no way”.
‘In any case we didn’t use the local based players in any of our past matches, Togo, Gabon, Algeria we didn’t used them, the foreign based players played all these matches because they are active, i don’t see the qualms about this, look it is not easy as people see it, if you’ve been a footballer before, you will understand we can’t use the local based players for such international tournaments.” He added.
