Dickoh may quit Ghana after snub


Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, the 25-year-old player, who has been in impressive form for his club Utrecht this season, insists that he deserved a place in the Nation’s Cup bound team.

“I am shocked and extremely disappointed that I was excluded from my country’s final squad for the Cup of Nations, and now I am considering my future with the national team because I think I deserve a place in the 23-man squad,” the Denmark-born player said.

“I don’t know if I will return to the team under this coach or any other coach in future. I need to think over it properly.

“I have worked so hard this season to ensure that I am the most consistent Ghanaian defender in Europe so far this season and I feel I have been let down. I respect the coach's choice but I have every right to say that I am disappointed.”

Dickoh is however optimistic of the Black Stars chances of hosting and winning the tournament, stating that the Ghanaian squad is a balanced one.

“The squad is full of fantastic players and I am sure they will make the nation proud by winning the title," he began.

“There are some big teams in the tournament but I think the Black Stars is a well balanced side and with the backing of our won fans we will win the title,” the stopper ads.
