Tony Lokko wants fans to lower pressure on Mohammed's Black Stars call-up

Posted On Wednesday, 5th December 2012

Yahaya Mohammed is knocking on the doors of the Black Stars

Amidaus Professionals head coach Tony Lokko says calls for Yahaya Mohammed’s inclusion into the Black Stars are premature.

The 24-year-old has electrified this season with swash-buckling performances that has got him many admirers, with others starting to take notice of his potential.

The on-loan Asante Kotoko midfielder has raked in 9 goals in 10 matches and that has sparked massive calls for his inclusion into the Black Stars ahead of the 2013 African Cup of Nations.

There are many who believe the former OGC Nice enforcer should be given the chance to state a case for himself at the continental showpiece.

While lauding the impact Mohammed has brought into his team in their debut season, the Amidaus trainer insists such calls are well wide off the mark.

“There is no doubt about the fact that Yahaya Mohammed is a good player but he needs to work extra hard to earn a place in the team,” Lokko said

“It’s up to coach Kwesi Appiah to decide. I don’t think it will be fair to pressurize the boy on him.

“He has his own plans and so should be allowed to make his own decisions. He may not even fit into his team.

“Besides, Yahaya will still need to work extra hard. While admitting he’s been sensational, consistency for me is the watchword. It may be too early for team but you never know.

“I think soccer fans should just allow the coach to do his work.”

The Ghana coach is in the process of finalizing his final squad for the Nations Cup to be staged in South Africa which starts in a little over 40 days.
