Coach of Ghana Black Stars B Maxwell Konadu has apologized for his side’s failure to qualify the 2018 CHAN.
The dream of Ghana’s CHAN team to the Kenya 2018 tournament was shattered by Burkina Faso on Sunday following a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Burkina Faso at the Baba Yara stadium.
Mohammed Sylla got an early goal for the visitors by opening the goal scoring accounts of the game at the 10th minute of the game.
Hermam Nikiema added the second for the Burkinaes at 30th minute before the recess of the game. Ghana came back strongly in the second half but were only able to reduce the deficit to one with a goal from Felix Addo.
“We have to start by saying that we are sorry for disappointing the very fans that has being behind this team all this while but what else can we say.
“The boys did their best and we guided them to how to be victorious, but unfortunately for us that couldn’t happen.”
“The boys are all down, so the mood in camp is not good but we think that it is football, we did whatever we had to do in order to reverse the scoreline but we couldn’t.” Konadu said in the post match interview.
Burkina Faso secures qualification with a 4-3 aggregate win after Ghana drew 2-2 with with them in Wagadougu last week in the first leg.
