Former Asante Kotoko and Ghana Black Stars Forward, Dauda Mohammed has revealed why he couldn’t join the national team for the upcoming African Cup Of Nations.
Dauda made it clear on TV3, one of Ghanaians broadcasting channels that he had to call off his matches and come back to sort out some family issues.
“Just recently, coach Otto Addo spoke to me. He said he saw me doing good things in Spain. After the game against Madagascar, I had the call to join the team [Black Stars] for the Kirin Cup but I had some family issues that I needed to sort out,” he said.
With the season completed, Dauda would have to return to his parent club, Anderlecht in Belgium having spent the season on loan at Spanish lower side, FC Cartagena.
However, the attacker does not intend on staying at Anderlecht and looks to move to a club that offers more playing time to eventually get more opportunities to play in the Black Stars.
“I want to move out from Anderlecht to a club that has a good project for me and to gets enough playing time for sure so that when I play more, I can earn more call-ups to the Black Stars. From the just-ended season, if I play more I can [play in the Black Stars].”
Ghana finished third in the Kirin Cup after beating Chile 3-1 on penalties thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper Abdul Manaf Nurudeen.
