Current Black Stars team lack experience: Coach David Duncan

Coach David Duncan has said that Ghana won the Africa Cup of Nations in the 1970s because the playing body had leaders who were well experienced in continental football and the same thing can’t be said of the current Black Stars.


Ghana are aiming at claiming their 5th Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) when Egypt host the rest of the continent in June.

Duncan has indicated that the crop of Black Stars players of today doesn’t have the experience that won Ghana the AFCON in the 1970s.

"We have problems with transitions in our national teams. Nobody is putting in place measures, policies, infrastructures and structures that would help to develop Ghana football. 

Look, winning AFCON in the 1970s was very easy because the players had leaders in the team, they had the experience in Africa and were playing in their comfort zones, but you can't say that for these current players. Although these players we have now may be good, they are playing in the wrong terrain, the kind of terrain that does not make winning AFCON easy", he told Esther Abankwa on Angel TV.

The draw for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will take place on Friday in the Egyptian capital of Cairo.
