Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu has finally agreed to play for the Ghana Black Stars after the President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku met with him in the UK.
The defender has been rejecting the offer to play for Ghana for the past two years over what the GFA allegedly did to him when he was facing a ban in football from FIFA.
Prior to Ghana’s FIFA World Cup playoff against, coach Otto Addo flew to the UK to speak with him to honor his invitation but for the umpteenth time, he refused to play for Ghana.
If the video below is anything to go by, then Mohammed Salisu has had his heart softened after the GFA President himself, Kurt Okraku flew to the UK to speak with him.
Okraku was on a working visit in Europe two weeks ago and managed to travel to Southampton to meet the highly talented defender.
The GFA President, using his Hausa oratory skills, managed to get Salisu to state the likely date he would play for Ghana.
During the meeting, Salisu made clear of his desire to play for Ghana but Okraku jokingly pressed him in the Hausa language to name the date which forced the confession from the player.
