Legon Cities FC striker, Hans Kwoffie has stated that the appointment of Maxwell Konadu as assistant Black Stars coach does not give him an automatic national team opportunity.
Kwoffie, 32 , joined Legon Cities FC from AshantiGold for the second round of last season’s league and quickly hit the ground running.
Prior to joining Legon Cities FC from AshantiGold, Kwoffie scored five goals in nine matches and replicated same tally at the Royals to complete a combine 10 goals
Still under contract with Legon Cities, Kwoffie believes he must perform for club in order to merit a national team call up and not rely on the presence of Black Stars assistant, Maxwell Konadu who doubles as the Royals’ head coach.
“As a player, I have to work hard and do my possible best to improve so that I can get a call up or maybe local Black Stars or any national assignment.
“It’s not that he is my coach so by hook or crook [I have to be in any of the national team], it’s that I have to perform.
“I have to deliver as a player for the club and nation.” Hans Kwoffie told Legon Cities TV.
Coach Maxwell Konadu was named Black Stars assistant coach alongside ex-Ghana international, Otto Addo with Richard Kingson continuing as goalkeeper’s trainer after the unveiling of Serbian, Milovan Rajevac head coach.
The Serb, 11 years after leaving Ghana returned to replace the exited Charles Akonnor whose contract was terminated by the Ghana Football Association.
The 67-year-old has two big tasks and that is to lead Ghana to end the 39-year AFCON drought in Cameroon next year and the qualification of the Black Stars to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Ghana are second in Group G on 3 points, one behind South Africa which they lost 1-0 to at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg in the second qualifier.
Ghana defeated Ethiopia 1-0 in their opening qualifier at the Cape Coast Stadium and must win their third game and second home match against Zimbabwe on Saturday, October 9 to increase the World Cup qualification hopes alive.
