Jordan should have captained Ghana in Luanda, not Amartey- Songo slams Chris Hughton

Countryman Songo, whose real name is Patrick Osei Agyemang, has criticized Chris Hughton for engaging in political manoeuvring within the national team shortly after he was named the Black Stars coach.

On the most recent episode of his Fire for Fire program on Adom TV, Songo said he was surprised to see Amartey and Partey leading the squad in Kumasi and Lunada, respectively, in place of Dede Ayew, who was benched for no apparent reason.

He asserted that Jordan Ayew, the team’s oldest player, ought to have been given the duty of acting as captain in his brother’s absence.

He proposed that Jordan Ayew, who has significant national team experience, should be elected vice-captain rather than Thomas Partey and Richard Ofori in the absence of his brother Andre Ayew.

“If Dede Ayew the captain is not around, Partey the second captain is also not there and the third captain is also not around who should be the captain?” Songo quizzed.

He added, “Jordan Ayew even has more experience than Partey so he should have been the second captain. So how come you give the captain’s armband to Amartey.”

Songo believes that it is as a result of these captainship issues that the Black Stars have failed to win a trophy in many years.

He said, “How can Ghana win a trophy with this kind of politics in the Black Stars? This is a bad attitude.

On the same show, Songo revealed that Andre Ayew was victimised by Chris Hughton in relation to Black Stars’ match against Angola in the AFCON qualifier.

Songo whose real name is Patrick Osei Agyemang said when it was time for hiring a coach for the Black Stars, the Ghana Football Association requested Ayew’s opinion as the team’s captain on the potential hiring of Chris Hughton and Kwasi Appiah
