Former Manchester City youth star, Yaw Yeboah has revealed how surprising it was when Black Stars coach CK Akonnor bluntly told him he was not ready for a Black Stars call up.
In an interview with Kumasi Fm, Ghana U20 Captain Yaw Yeboah said:
“It wasn’t too surprising I wasn’t invited for the AFCON qualifier against Sudan, I had the chance to talk to coach CK Akonnor and he told me I’m not ready for the Black Stars”, the youngster said.
“After joining Celta Vigo B, I’m waiting to play in the La Liga and so far I have been playing a couple of games and also get the opportunity to train with the first team.
“He feels my confidence is low but he knows me very well and even coached me at ‘Right to Dream Academy’.
“We have a good relationship but I feel he decides who to call, maybe in the next call up I will be ready”.
“As a young player and as a Ghanaian, I always want to represent my country at every level.
“For now I’m done with the youth level and looking up to a Black Stars call up”.
Akonnor replaced James Akwesi Appiah as Black Stars coach early this year and will be hoping to qualify Ghana to the next Africa Cup Of Nations when football returns.
