Ghana legend Abedi Pele says ‘bold’ decisions need to be made to ensure the progress of the Black Stars.
Ghana has seen mixed fortunes in the opening fixtures of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
The Black Stars suffered a painful 1-0 loss to Zambia just days after clinching a magnificent 7-0 win over Lesotho.
Many have suggested it is time to change the guard at the Black Stars with the ageing players giving way to the fresh up and coming stars.
And Pele without going into details seems to agree with this assertion by saying current coach Akwasi Appiah needs to take the ‘bold’ decisions to enhance the fortunes of the team.
“The future is very bright but we need to make some few bold decisions,” he said.
“I met him (Akwasi Appiah) before he went to Kumasi (for Lesotho game) and we strategized, I mean we talked a lot.
“And we came to a conclusion that it will be better for him to take his own decisions and fail than rather letting others take decisions for them and fail.”
Ghana is chasing a third straight World Cup appearance at the global showpiece which will be hosted in Brazil in 2014.
