National Teams Unfair To Amoako


A management member of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Mr. Jarvis Peprah, is outraged by what he describes as a deliberate attempt by handlers of the various national teams to ignore the exploits of young goalkeeper Isaac  Amoako .

Jarvis is further devastated by the exclusion of the youngster from the provisional list of 30 for the World Cup released by Coach Milovan Rajevac last week.

 

Coach Milo’s squad which is expected to embark on a training tour in France included four goalkeepers three of whom were locals.

 

He said some among the three local goalkeepers namely, Stephen Ahorlu(Heart of Lions), Stephen Adams(Aduana), Daniel Agyei(Liberty) could not be better than Amoako who by his performance in recent times has shown that he is among the best on the local scene.

 

“Sometimes I wonder whether Amoako is a Ghanaian because he has been totally ignored by all  the national team handlers”, Jarvis stated.

 

 “He was sidelined in the build-up to the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola when it was clear that he was an obvious choice”, he added.

 

Jarvis said Amoako was literally humiliated by the handlers of the local Black Stars when he was initially invited for camp during the team's preparations for the qualifier against Burkina Faso only to be told to go back home after a weary journey in a public transport from Kumasi to Accra.

 

“In fact he was promised a call-up later but was never invited”, he disclosed.

 

Jarvis who is also the Communications Director of  Kotoko said the latest decision to ignore Amoako in the building of the 30-man provisional list further deepens the lack of recognition for a goalkeeper who has proven in the past two seasons that he has what it takes to play in the national team.

 

“Even though Kotoko are not doing well this season, Amoako appear to be the brightest spot in the Kotoko oufit and I can tell you that but for his sterling show in the post the season would have been worse for us”, he stated.
