Former Accra Hearts of Oak and Black Stars player, Mohammed Polo believes the GFA should lure Kotoko and Cameroonian striker, Franck Etouga Mbella to play for the black stars.
Goal scoring has in recent times been a major problem for the nation since the absence of Asamoah Gyan. Over 10 different attackers have been called in the last 3 years to help bring a consistent end to this menace.
Speaking to Barak Mintah Brown on a Takoradi-based radio station, Beach 105.5FM, Polo claims Mbella’s success in the GPL is a confirmation of how quality a finisher he is and is in support of those calling for his nationality switch.
In his submission, he said;
“Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. He is African, he is playing in the Ghanaian league, he is playing the highest level of football and he is doing well. In his country, nobody saw him and if he’s come into our country and doing well in our league, it means we have given him the chance and so there’s nothing wrong with that.”
Franck Mbella is the leading goal scorer in the running Ghana Premier League with 19 goals including 1 he scored against Aduana FC last weekend at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
The Black Stars in the last two AFCON tournaments have scored a little of 7 goals with two of the goals being scored by a striker, Jordan Ayew.
