1978 African Cup of Nations winner Mohammed Polo wants the Ghana Football Association to lure Asante Kotoko forward Frank Mbella to play for the black stars.
Mbella is a Cameroonian and his exploits in the Ghana Premier League has caught the attention of a chunk of clubs with some reporting Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and others interest.
In his debut season in the Ghanaian top-flight, has stood out with brilliant performances for Kotoko who are destined to win the title for a record-extending 25 times.
Mbella has scored 19 goals after 28 matches into the campaign and could break Ishmael Addo’s 22 goals record.
Since the exclusion of Asamoah Gyan, Ghana has struggled in scoring goals.
However, according to Polo, 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.
“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.” He told Beach FM.
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.
