Black Satellites coach, Desmond Ofei has said unequivocally said there was zero interference in his call-ups for the just-ended African Games.

Speaking on the achievement of the team, the Belgian trainer gaffer revealed how players were selected for the tournament.

According to him, his player call-ups were not influenced by any official.

“We have five scouts in every region and we selected these players based on certain categories. We had over 1000 players through the scouting process but we placed them into three categories,” he told Asempa FM.

“We had players who were ready to play the national team. We had players who had the potential to play the national team and others who had to put in more effort to be able to play the national team.

“We made the best selection for the team and it paid off and I can confirm that nobody influenced my player selection. There was zero interference.

“I am here to help the nation and I am here thanks to the President [Kurt Okraku]. Everybody is super motivated, super hungry to achieve the absolute highest for Ghana because we need to get back to our glory,” he added.
