Former Managing Director of Accra Hearts of Oak, Neil Armstrong Mortagbe has called on Ghanaians to accept the apology rendered by Mubarak Wakaso and forgive the Black Stars midfielder.
Wakaso in an interview with Angel fm attributed Black Stars failure to winning the AFCON for the past 38 years to political interference with specifics to the ruling NPP and the opposition NDC.
Wakaso told Angel TV: ”I will speak the truth today. Do you know our problem about the game?
”Maybe we know but we don’t want to say it. But I think politics ruins the Blacks Stars at times. When NDC is in power, NPP doesn’t want us to win and vice versa.”
Wakaso’s statement generated a lot of rage and fury nationwide with many calling for an apology from the Chinese based rugged midfielder.
Wakaso took to his Twitter handle to render an apology to the entire nation.
Neil Armstrong in an interview with Oman fm, has urged Ghanaians to accept Wakaso’s apology and forgive him.
“For some of us who have been in this game for so long and given Mubarak Wakaso‘s immense contribution to the national team and the level of commitment he’s always shown, I will plead with all Ghanaians to forgive him.
“It’s good that he has recognized his mistake and has duly come out to apologize. A lot of times people in similar situations wouldn’t be so keen to take responsibility for their actions but the young man has done the honorable thing and deserves to be forgiven”
Mubarak Wakaso has made 58 appearances for the Black Stars and has chipped in with 12 goals in the process. He remains an integral member of the team and was one of Ghana’s best players at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament staged in Egypt.
