Coach CK Akonnor received advice from 2010 World Cup star Prince Tagoe on the plight of Black Stars
Former Ghanaian striker Prince Tagoe believes the Black Stars will need a tactical change to overcome their poor performances recently in front of goal.
The four-time African champions have struggled in their final matches to find the back of the net, having scored just once in the last four points.
Although coach CK Akonnor occasionally played with two strikers on top, the team mainly used a system with a lone frontman, as evidenced by their 1-0 defeat against South Africa in the 2022 World Cup. .
“We have our style of play that suits the Ghanaians, and I think if they took the 4-4-2, it would help us,” said the former Hoffenheim striker Tagoe, who represented Ghana at the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup in 2010. tournaments, tell Luv FM.
“We need two attackers who will help us score goals, because if you only play one top, it will be difficult. This is the biggest problem I can see with the team.
‘We have to go back to our old 4-4-2 we played earlier, and it will be much better, because if you only put Jordan [Ayew] at the top he alone can not score points, so we need typical two attackers, and the other people can work from the wings. ”
In the absence of Crystal Palace man Jordan Ayew in Monday’s meeting with South Africa, brother and team captain Andre led the way on a disappointing day at the FNB Stadium office in Johannesburg.
‘These are some things we need to look at, because if you post Dede [Andre] as an attacker he will find it difficult because Dede is not a goal scorer, ‘Tagoe added.
‘If Dede plays behind the goal scorer, it’s perfect, but if you put him as an attacker, you kill the team, because if he gets the chance, he’s going to score, but he’s not a goal scorer in certain spaces. to move. attacker will do to end. ”
Jordan was Akonnor’s leading scorer, but at times when the coach chose two men in front, Andre’s brother, mostly joined the 28-year-old.
