Former assistant coach of North Zealand and current Right to Dream head of football Mas-Ud Didi Dramani believes Stade Rennes sensation Kamaldeen Sulemana will need time to find his feet in Ghana’s national team.
The 19-year-old has returned to international service for Ghana’s qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, which kicks off with a home game against Ethiopia on Friday.
This is his second time at the Black Stars since he played for two friendly matches against Mali and Qatar last year.
“I expect him to be modest in the team. He is a child who did not have the opportunity to go from the youth team to the other, ‘Dramani, who worked with Kamaldeen during their time at the Danish Superliga outfit Nordsjaelland, told Citi TV
‘His first call was directly in the friendly match against Mali in Turkey. Such a person does not know the culture of the Black Stars.
‘But I know Dede Ayew and the others will take care of him. He needs to be integrated and then adapt to the team. ”
Dramani also shared his thoughts on the rocky relationship between former club Asante Kotoko and current head coach Mariano Barreto, who recently took a sweep in public about the ‘bad’ nature of the team’s management.
‘I do not know what the exact problem is, but it is not best to wash your dirty linen in public. “Some of these things have to be dealt with within the organization,” Dramani said.
‘It is not possible to find almost any individual and bring him to an organization. Efforts are always made before appointing an individual. He [Barreto] should have been aware of the situation in Kotoko before taking up the post.
‘When such statements are made, it raises serious questions about the future of the head coach.
“Does he [Barreto] do you want to leave, or does he want things fixed? But the bottom line is that it should not have been public because it looks bad to the club. ”
Following the relegation of the Danish league, Kamaldeen has become the subject of transfer speculation due to reported interest from the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Ajax and Rennes.
Eventually, he settled with the Ligue 1 team, for which he signed a five-year contract in July.
After Friday’s clash with Ethiopia, Ghana go to Johannesburg for a clash with South Africa at the FNB Stadium.
