Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has poured cold water on Ghana’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) hopes, stating that the Black Stars are not good enough to bring back the AFCON trophy back home from Cameroon.
Ghana having won the African Cup of Nations four times has not been anywhere won the continental trophy as far back as 1982 in Libya, getting close to bringing the trophies home in 1992, 2010 and 2015.
Despite winning the AFCON title being one of the reason for Ghana Football Association hiring Serbian Coach Milovan Rajevac, former Arsenal midfielder is not very optimistic about Ghana going all the way in the continental tournament.
“No, I don’t think we have a squad that is good enough but in football, you never know. Nobody backed Italy for the Euros but they won it, you never know,” Frimpong told GOAL.
“I think they can qualify from the group but I am not sure they can dominate because of Morocco. They have chances of progressing alongside Morocco.
“I like Egypt because I’m a huge fan of Salah and Arsenal player Elneny, so if Ghana doesn’t win it, I hope Egypt does. Salah is the biggest player in Africa for me,” he added.
