Ghana legend Abdul Razak ‘upset’ over lack of national team role


Legendary Ghanaian footballer Abdul Razak ‘Golden Boy’ has revealed his disappointment over the lack of a national team role despite years of applying for the job. 

The 1978 Africa Cup of Nations winner insists he has tried on several occasions to land a job with one of the national teams, but his efforts has proven futile.

A very disappointed Abdul Razak lamented on how his C.V was overlooked twice before Kwesi Appiah was appointed coach of the Black Stars.

“People are overlooking me and I don’t understand. May be because I don’t have any God father at the FA or I stay in Kumasi and they don’t see me so they think I’m dead,” he  to Luv FM’s Kick Off Sports show.

“If you don’t have a God father they don’t consider you. Sometime ago they said I should bring my CV.  I sent it twice but they didn’t mind me.”

“I remember the last time they put Kwesi [Appiah] there, I was one of those who sent my CV then someone from the FA told me, ‘coach I saw your CV and if we are going by CV you have no problem but you will not get the job’.”

The 64-year old remains satisfied with his achievements as a player and a coach. However, he gets ‘upset’ anytime he realizes he has not played a role with any of the national teams .

“When we are talking about football I can be proud of myself as a player and as a coach where I’ve reached,” he said.

“Even if you put me at the youth level  bringing them up is not bad but nothing at all? This makes me upset.”
