Anthony Annan dropped from Schalke team to face Mainz 05 in Bundesliga

Anthony Annan trained with Schalke this week but failed to make their squad for their game on Friday

Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan has dropped down the pecking order at Schalke 04 as he has been left out of the Royal Blues’s team to face Mainz 05 in the German Bundesliga on Friday night. 

The 27-year-old had been in Jens Keller’s 18-man squad for their last two Bundesliga games but is axed for the home game against Mainz 05.

Annan is one of the fringe players hoping to impress Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah and earn a place in the Ghana squad for the 2014 World Cup by earning enough playing time at club.

But his official debut for Schalke in the current season has delayed as he is excluded from their squad to face Mainz.

However, the former Hearts of Oak player could make their Uefa Champions League squad to face Real Madrid in mid-week.

    Oh Antonio paa nie!..What the hell are his advisers thinking after being left out of this team for almost a year and half.Whiles he had been a good performer for Ghana till his dip of form due to lack of playing time and match strength.So is it the love of money being the reason his agent and advisers cant tell him to leave Schalke for some playing time else where or what?It pains be so much that we will miss such a good player at the world cup.This same advise goes to Wakasu Mubarak.He also after so much noise which resulted in his departure for Russia.I guess he hasnt been able to gain enough playing time as well other there.I wont be surprise if he is also kicked out of the final squad..Hmm!
