In anticipation of their Africa Cup of Nations group qualifier against Madagascar, Black Stars coach Chris Hughton has stated that he will not be looking for a replacement for the injured Gideon Mensah.
The 24-year-old left-back was deemed unfit to participate in the upcoming match. This due to an injury assessment by the team’s medical professionals.
Coach Hughton expressed his preference to continue working with the current squad, emphasizing the quality within the team and the absence of a need for new additions.
Only under changing circumstances in the following days would he reconsider bringing in a replacement on standby. As it stands now there will be no replacement for Gideon Mensah
Coach Hughton defended his choice to include Mensah in the squad despite being aware of his injury, explaining that the player’s commitment to the national team and his French club’s management of his injury influenced the decision.
It was determined that excusing Mensah from the squad was the best course of action following further medical examinations. This will help prevent further injury and ensure his fitness for the upcoming season.
Coach Hughton emphasized the responsibility to assess the player’s condition and avoid risking his long-term well-being.
Notably, the coaching staff has already made replacements for the injured forward Inaki Williams and centre-back Alexander Djiku. Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer and Kasim Nuhu Adams have taken their respective places on the team.
