Black Stars ‘B’ head coach, Maxwell Konadu has apologised to the Ghanaian fraternity for failing to make it to the 2018 edition of the Championship of African Nations (CHAN).
Ghana was drawn to play Burkina Faso in a two legged tie to qualify for the tournament and after drawing 2-2 with the local side of Burkina Faso at Ouagadougou, the team was surprisingly beaten 2-1 at the Kumasi Baba Yara Stadium to lose 4-3 on aggregate.
Maxwell Konadu who was at the end of some blast from the Ghanaian supporters who thronged to the stadium said; “We have to start by saying that we are sorry for disappointing the very fans that has being behind this team all this while but what else can we say”.
He continued; “The boys did their best and we guided them on how to be victorious but unfortunately for us that could not happen”.
“The boys are all down, so the mood in camp is not good but we think that it is football, we did whatever we had to do in order to reverse the scoreline but we could not do so”, he added.
When asked about calls from the Ghanaian fraternity asking him to step down, Maxwell Konadu was quick to say; “It’s not the matter of quitting”.
“I am not a quitter. I have been with the team and working hard to get the best out of the team”, he added.
“We failing to qualify does not mean I should leave the job”., he lamented.
“I am still the head coach and so I think I don’t have to turn my back on Ghanaians”, he continued.
“I am not a quitter but we will continue to put things in place and work hard”, he concluded.
