Hearts coach denied Sammy Adjei Nations Cup spot

Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic says he left out the experienced Sammy Adjei because Hearts of Oak coach Nebojsa Vucicevic told him the goalkeeper was unfit.

The 31-year-old, who has four Nations Cup appearances, was expected to make the cut for next month’s championship in Gabon an Equatorial Guinea but was left out of the provisional 25-man squad on Thursday.

Stevanovic says he left out the Hearts of Oak shot-stopper because his compatriot Vucicevic told him Adjei was unfit for the Nations Cup.

“Sammy Adjei I was considering because I know he is very good. But I called Hearts coach Nebojsa who is my friend and also from Serbia. He told me Sammy Adjei was not well,” he said.

Unconfirmed reports in the local media claims Hearts officials expressed their discontent over Nebojsa’s action and will question him about it.

Adjei has conceded the least goals (five) in the Ghana top flight than any other goalkeeper as Hearts of Oak lie in second place.

    pls he was not selected just like many other players that is it. we don’t want any confusion. For those who cannot accept some of the players selected over others, I guess the earlier we deal with it within ourselves the better for us. I am sure if am given the opportunity to select players I’ll certainly not satisfy everyone. If my choice of players are not in it doesn’t mean that they are bad. Sometimes we turn to forget that we can be victims of our own success. Ghana is blessed with lots of good players. This also brings lots of problems or better still tension. Let’s rally around those chosen to represnt us and pray that they come out victorious. If we want to glue our minds to why ‘A’ was chosen as oppose to ‘B’ and why not ‘C my darling boy’ then we will run out of time for other important preparations.

    Everybody is entitled to his opinion in Ghana but when we re criticizing we must have some reservations.If we can remember very well,the Black Stars squad painted the same frightening picture of incapability prior to Angola 2010 AFCON but they PULLED A SURPRISE BY MAKING IT TO THE FINALS OF THE TOURNAMENT.WHY DON’T WE RALLY BEHIND THIS TEAM,GIVE THEM THE NECESSARY SUPPORT SO THEY CAN BRING THE TROPHY TO OUR MOTHERLAND RATHER THAN ENGAGE IN A BASELESS AND NON-RESULTANT ARGUMENT.If Ghanaians will observe this,anytime people don’t give any of the national team’s a dog’s chance,that is when they prove their worth.Remember the U-20 in Egypt,Remember the2006 and the 2010 world cup? PLEASE FOLKS LETS GIVE THEM THE NEEDED SUPPORT,OSSSEEEE GHANA.

    I HEAR MORE PEOPLE SAYING WHATEVER THEY LIKE…..BUT I JUST WANT TO SAY AM REALLY SHOCK WITH THE GFA WITH THE WAY THEY ARE TREATING QUINCY OWUSU ABEYIE….WE GHANAIANS LIED HIM TO NATURALISE FOR US ND LATER WE DUMP HIM LIKE A RAG…AND THAT IS VERY BAD BCOS ABEYIE IS OE OF THE FINEST PLAYERS WE DO HAVE IN THE COUNTRY…AND ALSO IT IS HARDLY TO SEE HIM COMPLAIN…

  6. Boba says:

    the black stars coach should stop insulting our intelligence with that unintelligent excuse about Sammy Adjei. can’t he do his own monitoring of Sammy? if he thinks Sammy is that good, why didn’t he let the black stars medical team examine Sammy?

  7. Sam says:

    @ eric, Im also even shock that some people wanted adomah in the team,The league adomah is playing, dont know if is a 2nd or 3rd division, but some the games looks like high school games. The players hes playing against are all in experienced, if hes that good im sure he will be playing in a better division.
