Former Ghana international Dan Owusu has jumped to the defense of misfiring striker Inaki Williams.
The 28-year-old, who plays for Athletic Bilbao, is yet to score his first goal for the Black Stars after seven matches in the Ghana jersey.
In an interview with Koforidua-based Bryt FM, the former Ghana Premier League goal king asserted Inaki Williams is not a bad striker and has therefore called on Chris Hughton to work on the attackers.
“In football, there are means to an end, that is to score goals and if you are unable to score, you cannot progress. Under Hughton, the team has not been banging in more goals and it is a problem”
“In the two games in charge, the team has scored two goals (one in each game), they need to work on the strikers on how to score the goals. Inaki Williams is not a bad striker, he has been scoring for his club but struggling with Ghana, so we need to work on him and other strikers” he said.
Ghana secured four points from two games under Chris Hughton after a win and draw in both legs against Angola during the AFCON 2023 qualifiers.
The Black Stars left it late at the Baba Yara Stadium when Antoine Semenyo climbed off the bench to score the match-winner to propel Ghana to victory over the Palancas Negras.
In the reverse fixture in Luanda, the four-time African Champions came from behind to draw against Angola.
In both legs, the Black Stars were unable to score more than one goal and Dan Owusu, who is unhappy about the teams one goal project has called on the Hughton to work on the attackers in order to score more goals in matches.
