ex-ghana-star-abdul-razak-feels-neglectedFormer Ghana International Abdul “Golden Boy” Razak feels neglected as a Coach ever since retiring from football.

The ex-Black Stars striker has been waiting for an opportunity to Coach the National team having had a successful Coaching spell with Kotoko.

Razak, led Kotoko to win the Ghana Premier League title in 2005.

Despite making efforts to be recognized by authorities at the FA to hand him a role as a national team Coach, the former African football of the year award winner has been overlooked by the FA and his former employers Kotoko.

“We have been neglected, this is what am saying, from U17, U20, Black Stars am not in since Nyantakyi took over almost 12 years ago,” he said on GTV’s Inquest show.

“The same thing with Kotoko, how many Coaches do we have now since 2005 till now, they have appointed about 22 Coaches.

“We are there, they gave KK Sarpong a job to do he never called me, they gave Opoku Nti administration, they never called me, they gave Dr Kyei now and he never called me. So if it wasn’t Otumfuo who gave me the team at that time.

“There are Coaches who came but didn’t perform and they came back twice, I feel very bad, very unhappy about the situation.

“The administration from the Club and administration from the National team, they have tried everybody except me, I don’t know what I have done wrong, they should tell me today whoever is listening.

“I have regretted sacrificing for Kotoko and the National team because for now the only thing left for me is to be with the National team and win something, and I know I can win it, I know I can win something for the National team, if not I will retire.

“I have won everything at Club level, I won in Benin, at Mali I won four times.”

Abdul Razak was a member of the Black Stars team that won the 1978 and 1982 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
