Ghanaians were shocked after defender Gideon Mensah was left out of Otto Addo’s first eleven to face Uruguay in Ghana’s last group game on Friday followingan impressive display against South Korea four days earlier.
Mensah returned to the bench for Baba Rahman who has been poor in recent games for Ghana against Uruguay.
As anticipated , Baba gave another disastrous performance and many Ghanaians were in disbelief that the former Schalke O4 Player lasted the entire duration
Before the game, team news from reporters and even from the coach Otto Addo suggested no player was injured, so questions were asked about the total neglect of Mensah who has demonstrated over and over again that he is Ghana’s best left-back
This made some Ghanaians pour their anger on Baba Rahman who has been with the team for a very long time but has continued to deliver stinkers upon stinkers without any shame
In defense of him, Kurt Okraku’s errand boy Sheik Tophic Seinu, who has no position at the Black stars setup but has been interviewing players, coaches, and officials and taking videos and uploading them on his personal Utube channel took to his Facebook wall to write a long thesis which suggested, because he is closer to the team he has information that most people don’t, in the post Tophic stated that Gideon Mensah faked an injury against South Korea that is why he lost the trust of the coaches?
Below is the screenshot of the long post:
In the said game, Gideon Mensah suffered what looked like a cramp in the 85 minutes and got substituted,
