“Having chosen the technical team, I will also implore you, leave them to do their work. I think the people who run football clubs know what it is required of a good coach. He takes the responsibility, if he doesn’t you know what to do with him.

“What is always a problem is minister saying, this person should play, and saying president says I should tell you x player has to play. No, we don’t want any of that,” the President said.

The President also assured his government will do its maximum best to provide the basic needs for the Black Stars to make their participation in World Cup Qatar 2022 finals a success.

Otto Addo is expected to name his preliminary squad for the 2022 World Cup in the coming days before naming his final list on November 14.

Ghana will open training camp in Abu Dhabi on November 10.

Ghana will play Switzerland in an International friendly on November 17, before travelling to Qatar for the World Cup.

The Black Stars are paired in Group H alongside Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay. Ghana will begin the campaign against Portugal on Thursday, November 24 before taking on South Korea and Uruguay in the other Group matches.
