Ghana Coach Akonnor wishes to lure Nkeita, Lamptey and others to the national team using Nigeria's model.
 

Ghana national team coach CK Akonnor has disclosed his secret love for the Nigerian national team model of tempting players of Nigerian descent around the world to the national team.

The super eagles have now successfully lure players like Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina, Semi Ajayi, Maduka Okoye, Willam Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun, Kingsley Ehizibue, Joe Aribo amongst others to the national instead of their countries of birth.

Akannor revealed that some of the Ghanaian players birthed in Europe have agreed to play for the Black Stars.

"The most important thing is those who were born in Europe. Some of them are eager to play for the Black Stars," Akonnor told Starr FM.
He, however, used Nigeria as a yardstick of how they lure Nigerian decent players abroad to improve the team.

“That is what we want to do. Look at Nigeria, I think they have done that in a very nice way.

“They have brought a lot of guys who were born in Europe and the Nigerian team is now transformed so we are trying to do the same with the national team.”
