The experience gaffer believes the defender comes no where near to be given a Black Stars call up ahead of the game against Sudan
Former Asante Kotoko coach J.E Sarpong has insisted that Chelsea defender Abdul Baba Rahman shouldn’t have been named as part of Ghana’s squad that will face Sudan in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The defender has been inactive at Chelsea after he was not even registered by head coach Frank Lampard but C.K Akonnor surprisingly handed him a call up, insisting that he has been playing with Chelsea’s youth team.
“My problem with CK Akonnor’s selection has to do with that of Baba Rahman,” Sarpong said, as quoted by KYFilla.
“Has Baba Rahman been consistent with his team [Chelsea] this season? If it’s because he plays for the reserve side of Chelsea and has earned a call up to represent Ghana, then it’s a big no from my end,” he added.
Ghana will host Sudan on November 12 before they travel to Khartoum five days later for the return fixture.
