Otto Addo ‘sees other players’ ahead of Joseph Paintsil



Black Stars coach Otto Addo has explained his decision to leave Joseph Paintsil out of the squad for this month’s international friendlies, stating that he “sees others” ahead of the forward.

Paintsil, who has been in outstanding form in Belgium this season, is one of the notable absentees from the squad for the matches against Brazil and Nicaragua. The forward has four goals and one assist so far.

“[Joseph Paintsil] was very close. Joseph is doing well. It would have been good for him to play the Japan and Chile matches to show more of himself but he had some problems so he decided to leave the team and also he wanted to start with his team. At the moment, I see others ahead of him,” Addo said.

Ghana will play Brazil in Le Havre on Friday before traveling to Spain to face Nicaragua on September 27.

Both friendlies are part of the team’s preparation for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where they will compete in the group stage against Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay.
