Ghana’s Legend Asamoah Gyan has criticized Black Stars coach Milovan Rajvac for the late introduction of Africa U-20 Best Player Issahaku Abdul Fatawu after the team conceded against Morocco.

The all time top scorer for Ghana was speaking on his AFCON punditry duty on Super Sport. He stated that at a point the Black Star lacked urgency and needed fresh legs like Fatawu to move on.

Ghana suffered 1-0 defeat in the hands of the Atlas Lions, thanks to the 81st minute goal from Soufiane Boufal at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in a Group C tough encounter last Monday.

Speaking on SuperSports, the former skipper indicated that the Black Stars team lacked urgency upfront and was not happy about the late introduction of Fatawu Issahaku who came inn for Joseph Paintsil on the 86th minute.

He stated that: “There was no urgency from the Black Stars. We wanted to catch the Moroccans on counterattack. I was expecting Issahaku to come on but it was late and it affected us. In games like this, you need to take your chances and win the game.”

He added that “If you create the chances and fail to convert them, the fans will not be happy.”

The Black Stars will face Gabon who already have 3 points on Friday, 14th January 2022.
