Former Black Stars first choice goalie Razak Brimah takes swipe at Ghana FA over discrimination in call ups

Ghana international Razak Brimah has taken a swipe at the Ghana Football Association for discrimination in Black Stars call ups.

Brimah was Ghana’s number goalkeeper at the 2015 and 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournaments. However, he has not played for Ghana in five years.

The 34-year-old believes he is good enough to be the Black Stars’ first-choice goalkeeper, but he has been purposefully kept out of the team despite being better than the others.

“With all due respect to my other goalkeepers they really know that if not discrimination within the GFA, by now I should be the number 1 shot stopper for the Black Stars because they all know I am hundred percent far better than them,” he told Kasapa FM’s Alexander Anyankwaa on Twitter Space.

“Let’s be very honest to ourselves here when it comes to Black Stars, the right things are not done, many at times the authorities don’t do the right things and they always want a player to blunder so that they may use that to cut him off from the national team”.

He recounted and lamented how the GFA treated him when he broke his jaw which threatened his career.

“Even in 2017 I got injured during the Cup of Nations by broking my jaw but no FA member called to even check up on me and this is so unfair”.

Brimah, who plays for Spanish third-tier side Linares Deportivo, has been capped 27 times for Ghana since his debut in 2013.
