Playing away from Bloemfontein can affect us- Maxwell Konadu

Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu hopes his side can adjust to conditions in Cape Town where the play Libya in the final of the African Nations Championship.

The Local Black Stars have played all five matches at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein and this will be a new terrain for them.

The team arrived in Cape Town on Thursday morning to continue preparations for the grande-finale.

Konadu fears the change in environment could have a negative effect on his troops.

“Playing away from Bloemfontein, which has become our home, will have some impact on us when we play Libya in the final in Cape Town,” Konadu in a post-match interview.

“The people in Mangaung have been behind us and we will miss them in the final but we still intend to do well against Libya, a good side which we know something about.”

Saturday’s final is a repeat of their second Group C match which ended 1-1.

Ghana are chasing their first title since 1982 when they coincidentally defeated Libya on penalties to lift the Africa Cup of Nations.

    Coach Please check your history and stats, when ever you beat nigeria enroute any championship, Ghana losses their next match/title!.History may repeat itself again here because Ghana put everything and their life to make sure they beat Nigeria.The Adusei nearly send Ejike to his early grave and was deservely red carded, look at how they where panting like a dying he goat during the match.We thought we are going to see a beautiful football knowing Ghana free flowing games but alas,what we saw was wrestlers against footballers.If Ghana tries that shit of play against Libya, not less than three of your players will be sent off because the world have noted your negative style of play.Beating a tactical north african team after so much exhaustion in the game against Nigeria on a different field won’t be easyoo!

      @Steve did we watch the same matche? How do you justify that one of the teams was a wrestling team whilst the yellow cards given suggest if anything, that the game was physical from both sides? Yellow cards: GH(4) and NIG(3)? And if I remember well the fouls committed were GH(25) and NIG (21). You guys are sore losers. Until you met Ghana, you had not play more tactical side with Mali an exception. That Ejike Guy might be crazy to have made that comment. His seizure was not as a result of Edusie’s tackle but he hit his head on the turf thinking he was sleeping on a mattress. You guys were fairly beaten by a more tactically disciplined side. Just accept and move on.

    Final Whistle , bro where is the cup heading to now? Libya!…didn’t I predict it.You see you can eat your cake and have,Ghanians came to the championship with a wrong mind set and they have paid for it .Libya is not better than morrocco tactically and otherwise that we trashed.That monster Adusei should not near your world cup team otherwise you will not know what your team during the game.I am happy Libya with a better play won and gave Ghana their own negativee pills!
