Ghana Black Stars forward, Mubarak Wakaso has said that the Ghana National team is full of politics and that has facilitated in the trophy less run for the team.
The 27-year-old midfielder believes the two biggest political parties in the country- NPP and NDC-are partly to be blamed to the country’s 38-year trophy drought.
The Black Stars have not won a continental title since 1982 when they lifted the Africa Cup of Nations for the fourth time.
Since then, Ghana have come close on three occasions burned and crushed on the cusp of lifting the title in 1992, 2010 and 2015.
Wakaso, 0ne of the longest members of the current squad, feels the rivalry between the two parties is militating against the team’s title-winning chances.
He claims the national team does not get the get full ‘moral’ support from the two main political parties because of their own agendas.
He said “I will speak the truth today, do you know our problem about the game? Maybe we know but we don’t want to say it but i think politics ruin the Blacks Stars at times. When NDC is in power, NPP doesn’t want us to win and vice versa”.
He however reveals his plans to return to the Club which natured him to fame.
“I have a couple more years to play but before I retire or hang my boots I will play for Ashanti Gold, he said in an interview with Angel FM.
“I spent sometime with AshGold before leaving to Europe, they gave me the opportunity and natured me to become whom I am today.
“And I have plans of playing for them again before I retire from the game.”
The hardworking midfielder previously played for Spanish sides Elche, Villarreal, Espanyol and most recently Deportivo Alaves.
