Ghana were unlucky to lose CHAN final - coach Maxwell Konadu

Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu believes his side were simply unlucky to lose on penalties to Libya in the final of the African Nations Championship.

Konadu claims his troops gave their best shot of winning the country’s first seniors title since winning the 1982 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Libya.

The Local Black Stars drew 0-0 after extra-time but were piped to the title in sudden death of penalty shoo-out losing 4-3 to the Mediterranean Knights.

“We cannot say there is anything that went wrong. We did our best but things didn’t work out the way we wanted. We have taken it on the chin. We just lost the game,” Konadu humbly said.

“What this tournament showed is that African football is on the rise. The level of this competition has really risen by each tournament.

“This particular competition has been a massive success. We need to congratulate the tournament organisers for a job well done.

“We have a bunch of good players who can take Ghana to the next level. We were solid at the back but could have done a little better upfront.

“The experience in South Africa for the past month has been an eye-opener. We really need such tournaments in Africa to give local based players a chance to show their talent.”

This was Ghana’s second attempt at winning the African Nations Championship after losing 2-0 to DR Congo in the inaugural edition hosted by Ivory Coast in 2009.

    how lucky does Konadu wants to be? You don’t even deserve to be in the final. You play ugly football coupled with the unproductive one top you were playing. There was no support for the striker. You made life so easy for the Libyans. Useless coach!!!

    you guys made my day. the blackstar were very poor. the weakest blackstars i have ever watched. bad ball control, passes poor and couldn’t hold pocession continous for some aeons of period. Goal scoring ability very lonely. They were lucky to reach finals.

    They were stopping balls for the opponents to pickup from their feet.

    Not forgetten, player decision process on the ball was not there.
