Former Ghana international,
Mohammed Ahmed Polo, has thrown his weight behind Black Stars captain, Andre
Dede Ayew for saying that Ghana needs the help of the god of football to win
the Africa Cup trophy.
The Black Stars are in
group F of the 2019 showpiece that would be staged in Egypt from June 21 to
The former Hearts of Oak
talisman, speaking on AFCON Diaries
programme on Asempa FM, sided with
the captain, insisting that Ghana needs luck “if we indeed want to end the 37
years trophy drought.”
The dribbling magician, as
he is affectionately, believes apart from the luck and also the god of football
helping the team, unity will also be key in winning the trophy.
“Ghana needs luck to win
the trophy; but that luck depends on the unity of the entire players, this is
because if you have luck, you can go through it. We have had luck to go closer
to the cup on some occasions but it didn’t go well.
“This time around, I think
with prayers we can be able to overcome that 37 years trophy drought despite
the problems they have gone through.”
The Black Stars, after
winning their last trophy in 1982, have since been at the final on three
occasions, losing all with the latest against Ivory Coast which they lost 9-8
on penalties in 2015.
