Lawyer Moses Foh Amoaning, a veteran sports journalist, has stated that the purported use of black magic (juju) in the Black Stars’ camp is not a mere allegation, as some have claimed.
One of the greatest concerns plaguing Ghana football, notably the Black Stars, according to a member of the Dzamefe Commission, is the alleged use of juju by some Black Stars players.
On Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana, a legal practitioner who has covered the Black Stars for decades told Paul Adom-Otchere that the claims about the use of juju in the Black Stars camp are real.
“I have told you Paul that coaching is only an aspect of the problem in Ghana football, we have the dynamics of the team itself and this juju bit is not something that you can push away. Because the juju thing pushes a lot of good players away.”
“Even if you have a good coach, he is not going to play the game because if the players do not want to play, they will not do it and there is nothing you can do about it. And if the players wake up at night and they are being disturbed by a mallam, they will not play and that disrupts the chemistry of the team,” he said on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana on Friday, February 11, 2022.
When asked if the reports of juju in the camp of the Black Starts are true, he said “Of course it is true. You can also go and find out because you are a journalist but I’m telling you is true,” Moses Foh Amoaning told Paul Adom-Otchere.
After being put in a group featuring Comoros, Gabon, and Morocco’s Atlas Lions, the Black Stars failed to win a single game at the 2021 AFCON.
