Former GPL topscorer threatens to play for the USA

Latif Blessing says he has done everything to deserve a Black Stars call-up, but is being overlooked by the technical handlers.

Blessing scored 17 goals in the Ghana Premier League in the 2015-16 season and earned a contract to play for Kansas in the United States of America.

He hit the ground running by announcing his presence with some good goals and emerged as one of Ghana’s finest players abroad last season.

However, his performance is yet to catch the attention of coach James Kwesi Appiah and his technical team members.

Blessing who believes his call-up into the Black Stars is long overdue, has sent a warning to Ghana that he would consider switching nationality.

“I am ready to switch nationality and play for USA. I’m not focused on the Black Stars because I have done enough to merit an invite but to no avail,” Blessing told Happy FM.

The 21-year-old was named in the provisional squad for Ghana before the 2017 African Cup of Nations but failed to it for the finals.

The former Liberty Professionals attacker is currently with Los Angeles FC after excelling at Kansas City.
