Southampton’s Ghanaian defender, Mohammed Salisu has indicated his willingness to represent the senior national team, the Black Stars.
He has made it clear that the time is not right for him to represent the Ghanaian National team due to his inconsistencies at club level.
In a recent interview with MozzartSport Kenya, he said: “I’ll be so proud to play to my country, to play with Ghana, the national team”.
The former Real Valladolid player quickly indicated he is in no rush to pursue an international career as he believes cementing a crucial role in Southampton’s team should be his priority.
“But I think this is not the right moment to play in the national team. I think I need to focus on the club side because I am young, I think I need to focus on the club first and then after, when everything is fine, I can go and play for Ghana.”
The coach of the Black Stars, C.K Akonnor has been chasing the defender for a while now and he failed to honor an invitation in 2019 citing injury problems.
