Vitoria Guimaraes are jubilating over David Addy’s exclusion from the Ghana squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 22-year-old was hoping to make his first Nations Cup appearance following an impressive debut season with the Portuguese club.
But the left-back was dealt a major blow when he was left out of the Black Stars’ provisional 26-man squad for the tournament that kicks off on January 19 in South Africa.
News of Addy’s snub has been flamboyantly reported on Vitoria’s official website with coach Rui Vitoria overjoyed by ‘his good luck’.
The ex FC Porto player has become an integral part of the side since arriving on a permanent deal at the beginning of the season.
Vitoria’s joy is even more evident with the knowledge El-Arbi Hilal Soudani and Issam El Adoua are likely to join the Algeria and Morocco national teams respectively for the tournament.
