Blame Anas Number 12 exposé for Black Stars painful exit.
Many Twitter users believe that the Black Stars’ poor performance in the 2021 African Cup of Nations is due to the expose by ace investigative reporter Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
In a Twitter post closely watched by wilsontrendit.com, angry football fans claimed that now the senior national team’s bad results were linked to the resignation of Frank Kwesi Nyantakyi, the former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), who was sacked following the release of Anas’ documentary ‘Number 12’.
According to them, the exposé harmed Ghana’s football’s goodwill and unity, resulting in a drop in the Black Stars’ performance to this day.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi was actually the backbone of the Black Stars herh,” Kelewele Joint, an enraged supporter, tweeted. Anas’ inquiry was pointless, as we can all agree. Take a look at how we’re suffering.”
“Anas dey pri waa because if Kwesi Nyantakyi dey like he purchase some cool 6 points for us but we sey the thieves for Ghana all ebe am we want sack,” Jrue No Holiday added.
“Black Stars has never been the same since Anas performed an exposé on GFA,” another concerned fan tweeted.
“Ghana is slipping ever since Kwesi Nyantakyi left our football,” one user, Osei Gyamfi Benjamin, tweeted.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi would’ve ensured Ghana a semi-finals qualifying for the Black Stars even before the competition had started,” remarked another unhappy supporter, Francis Walkie. Anas will be punished by God no matter where he is.”
The disgruntled supporters were reacting to the Black Stars’ inability to overcome Comoros and advance to the next round of the tournament.
The Stars were defeated by Comoros three goals to two in a hard-fought encounter, with skipper Andrew Dede Ayew incurring a red card in the early exchanges.
The Black Stars have been ejected from the ongoing tournament in Cameroon, according to the results.
Following that, they’ll be expected to leave the country, as their chances of ending their four-decade AFCON trophy drought have faded.
