Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu has told David Duncan to render an apology for making unsubstantiated allegations of unfair selection of players to the national team.
The Hearts of Oak trainer told supporters in a forum earlier in the week his players were being discriminated against over call ups to the national team.
Duncan further alleged the dominating Kotoko coaches managing the various national teams were only serving the interest of the Premier League champions by offering their players preferential treatment with respect to international opportunities.
Many believe these comments made by Duncan is only to incite supporters of Hearts of Oak against national team coaches – especially for those with links to Asante Kotoko.
But coach of the home-based Black Stars explained the comments made by the Hearts of Oak coach was way out of line and for that he must apologize.
“I don’t even know how to respond to this allegation,” Konadu told Metro FM.
“Abeiku Ainooson for instance started playing for the local Black Stars even before I took over.
“And I called him not even knowing he will eventually become an Asante Kotoko player.
“I called David Duncan to discuss Nuru Sulley where he even told me the player missed the latter part of last season due to injury.
“But I however went ahead to call the player because I believe he has something to offer.
“If it was to strengthen Kotoko then why did I drop Yahaya Mohammed for the friendly against Libya?
“There was no need to touch the back four when they were doing well hence the decision not to bring Nuru Sulley on [in friendly against Libya].
“There is nothing in this allegation and even some Hearts of Oak fans have called to apologize and that is why I am keeping cool.
“Duncan did not speak well and ought to come out and do the proper thing by apologizing.”
