Ghana’s assistant coach Maxwell Konadu watched Frank Sarfo-Gyamfi and Awal Mohammed in action in the South African top flight on Friday.
Konadu alongside Ghana FA President Kwasi Nyantakyi were in the stands to watch the Ghanaian duo play for Maritzburg United in the 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs.
The GFA boss and the coach were in South Africa to primarily witness the draw for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and also to inspect camping facilities to be used by the Black Stars during the tournament.
The Black Stars officials however took time off to check on the performance of the Ghana U-20 midfielder and the former Asante Kotoko defender.
Both played the full game in the hard-fought draw played before a packed Harry Gwala Stadium.
The Ghana officials congratulated and encouraged the players during a hearty interaction after the game –a meeting which lasted over 30 minutes.
The visit could be inferred in certain quarters as a move by the Ghana FA to assure the players of a Black Stars future provided they keep up their performance.
The Ghanaian players have excelled under coach Ernst Middendorp at Maritzburg – helping the side rise to third after eight rounds of matches.
