Ex-Ghana goalie Damba claims Stephen Adams is not matured for Black Stars

Ex-Ghana goalkeeper Abubakar Damba claims Stephen Adams is not yet a finished product, insisting he needs to mature before he is considered for a national team call-up ahead of the World Cup.

The Aduana Stars shot-stopper has emerged as one of the brightest spot in the Local Black Stars team at the ongoing CHAN tournament.

The 24-year-old has conceded just a goal after four matches, prompting calls for a potential call-up into the Black Stars ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil in June this year.

However the former Hearts goalkeepers’ trainer Abubakar Damba says Adams has not matured just yet.

“He needs to learn from the sidelines, before he can be ripped for the main Black Stars team, but I think he is a prospect in the near future, so he needs to be encouraged,” Damba is quoted by Metro FM

“If he is rushed and unfortunately things don’t go on well, we will kill his spirit and that will be the end for him.”

With Fatau Dauda still struggling for game time at South African side Orlando Pirates, there are many who believe Adams should be considered as a potential replacement.

Adam Kwarasey, Daniel Agyei, Razak Brimah and veteran Richard Kingson will all be fighting for a place in the Ghana squad.

    What maturity is Damba talking about? And, learn from the sidelines? Which sidelines did Dauda learn from? Adams needs to play in one of the BlackStars’ friendly matches for Appiah to assess him further. He is a potential Stars’ goalkeeper. Meanwhile, Kwarasey is the best we have.

  2. spellBOUND says:

    i do not know how good this guy is, but claiming that “He needs to learn from the sidelines” defies logic. goalkeeping isn’t like coaching, u need to be thrown into the fire to learn.

  3. johnny says:

    I hope that man watched Stephen Adams in the Ghana-Nigeria game!! Adams in Brazil!

  4. Papadinho says:

    Jup this guy should replace dauda. Kwarasey will be our no 1 and Agyei will be second and this dude will be the third choice.
    Bless

    Damba knows nothing.what has he done at Hearts of Oak? How many goals have Hearts conceded? He wants bribe b4 he says the truth. Stephen Adams deserved to be in Ghana team to Brazil.

  6. hamzy says:

    I think damba is right, Adams is very good but not to the world stage. He still need some experience

  7. Assemblyman says:

    I think Damba might be right in a way.I agree Adams has a lot to learn.But he should be given the necessary exposure at least watching and learning from the bench from Kwarasey and Adjei.But that Fatau Dauda is not a good news at all.He cant even save a penalty.I know Kwarasey and Adjei do save penalties in critical moments.Fatau Dauda is just another sell out dude.I believe we dont have a problem in the goalkeeping department.But the trainer Yakubu makes us think so.Why,because he dumps the fighting spirit of active and performing goalkeepers as in Adjei and Kwarasey.By benching them for no reason for his favorite Fatau Dauda.With claims that Kwarasey who is a club captain and a goalie in his prime lacks the mentality to keep the posts while in training with the BS.Who on earth will ever come out as this as a trainer.We should have fired him the next day after saying this bullshit.Nonetheless,it never ended there as he went to train privately with Dauda at Lizzy’s Sports Complex.The relationship between the pair is very obvious.Yakubu must be fired to ensure fairness and progress in our goalkeeping department.Finally,we dont have a problem in our keeping department.We do have a lot of good goalkeepers around.But the problem is the trainer Yakubu,he must be fired and brought on someone capable for the job.We never heard any bias cases while Eddie Ansah was the keeper’s coach.I believe Kwarasey even functioned well under Eddie.A big example was Ghana vs Brazil and the rest.But the table turned when this Yakubu dude took over.Why,is it hatred for the guys or just a mere stupidity on behalf of Yakubu.An old man like you(Yakubu) with grey hairs on your head and still acting like a pussy..What will bribery do for you.Because someone like Kwarasey wont pay a dime to you.Since in his world in Europe corruption isnt supported.Therefore Yakubu is doing everything to frustrated this guy.How does he wants Kwarasey to feel psychologically with the BS team.Meanwhile in Europe he is emerging as one of the best goalkeepers.Dont you think after he winning laurels within the Norwegian league,had Norway had any other option of reinstating him into the Norwegian National team,I guess they would have done that by now and long ago.The guy just love Ghana even when he started fighting for his applications to be accepted to switch nationality for Ghana since 2005.Which I quite remember very much.So after sacrificing this hugely to play for Ghana,just one stupid hungry man Yakubu is doing everything to frustrate him.Yakubu is corrupt,he wouldnt have my respect no matter his age.Since he sold his conscience for Fatau’s little coins..Aboa kwa!!
