Majeed Waris Talks Up AFCON 2019


Ghana international Majeed Waris has strongly debunked claims that there are big egos and tension within the senior National team which is preventing the team from winning trophies.

There have been several rumors about certain factions created in the Black Stars thus leading to the inability of the team to win a major trophy. AFCON 2019 is just around the corner and there has been lots of talks again concerning Ghana’s chances at the tournament to be hosted in Egypt.

With a host of talented youngsters and experienced tournament players, the pressure is mounting on Ghana to finally put an end to the over three decades trophy drought.

Ghana was at the losing end in two finals, the 2010 and 2015 editions of the African Cup of Nations to Egypt and Cote D’Ivoire respectively and would be looking to finally get a hand on the prestigious trophy in 2019.

Waris ,27,who has 31 caps for Ghana is still yet to make an appearance at the AFCON, missing the past tournaments due to injuries.

According to the former Right to Dream Academy striker, the country’s past failures has been due to hard luck rather than the purported big egos as claimed by certain people.

“With the national team there are a lot of rumors especially regarding these issues. When I am in camp I only think about winning and leaving. If we are winning trophies no one will bring up these issues.

“It is because we are not winning,once we win no one will speak about division. As players all we need to  do is concentrate on winning to bring unity,” he told Planet Sport Football Africa.

Majeed Waris ,who made an appearance at the 2014 FIFA World cup in Brazil, is on loan from FC Porto and has made 24 appearances for Nantes and netting four times already this season.
