Defender Daniel Opare has told Ghanaian fans not to lose faith in the Black Stars despite breaking their hearts at the just ended 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Standard Liege player, who did not play at the tournament in South Africa, is optimistic the team will develop a title winning mentality for the 2015 tournament in Morocco.
The Black Stars finished a disappointing fourth place and were unconvincing in their play.
That performance has infuriated a lot of fans back home with the commitment of the players being questioned.
Opare understands the exasperation of the fans but says they will their massive support to succeed.
“The fans are right to get angry when the result they are expecting is not what they are getting but it is part of the game,” Opare told MTNFootball.com
“All we have to do is to learn from our mistakes, correct them and start thinking about how to get good result in the next game
“We as a nation can take inspiration from Spain where I also played before. How many years did it take them to win a first major trophy? I believe there is hope for Ghana.
“Once again, we the players are sorry but the fans shouldn’t abandon us.”
Opare was an unused substitute at the 2012 finals in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
He just returned from a four-month injury layoff and has reclaimed the right-back role in his team. .
