Le Roy Warns Sammy Adjei Over Retirement
Ghana coach Claude Le Roy has warned goalkeeper Sammy Adjei that he will regret his decision to quit the Black Stars if he doesn't rescind the move. The Frenchman is still interested in having the Israel-based player in the team but says the team will be fine without Adjei. The 27-year-old is unhappy about playing second fiddle to Richard Kingson which led to several clashes with the coach at the recent African Cup of Nations. "He shouldn’t be a victim of frustration, bad advice, and pressure from his club. He should be careful not to make a decision he will regret in future," Le Roy told GFA News. "There are a lot of goalkeepers in the country who will be proud to wear the national jersey. The national team is more important than any individual and we will surely move on. "Sammy Adjei is a very good goalkeeper and I understand his frustrations as the number two goalkeeper of the Black Stars but I don’t think it’s the best decision he has taken even though one has to respect it. "There are many top goalkeepers in the world who are second-choice in their national teams and I have always pointed this out him. "I always tell him about Coupet who for many years was second choice to Barthez but is now the number choice. "But I will talk to him again when I come back (to Accra) and try and convince him to change his mind." The Stars coach described Adjei as a true professional but says the team would move on if the goalkeeper does not rescind his decision. "He has generally behaved well and his conduct during the recent Cup of Nations was perfect and I hope he is not being influenced,” Le Roy added.
