Black Stars forward, Abdul Majeed Warris has attributed the current underperformance of the Black Stars to political-inclined decisions of the selecting players into the team.
He said this in a response to earlier comments by fellow teammate Mubarak Wakaso on why the Stars are underperforming on the international scene.
The French-based player explained that politics does not affect the performance of the players on the field of play but rather it has influence on the general criteria of selection of players into the team.
He believes that has contributed immensely to the failure of the team achieving in recent times.
“I felt like it’s not a political thing that’s affecting the performance of the players because politics does not play football but it’s the players. Politics don’t affect the performance but rather affect the selection of the players into the team,” he said.
He further bemoaned that he has been used as a sacrificial lamb in the team due to his inability to link up with authorities in the team.
“Not knowing anyone in the team I’m being used as a scape goat for underperforming players to play in my absence,” he lamented.
Abdul Majeed Warris is currently on loan to Strasbourg in the top flight division of the French league from FC Porto.
