Stop insulting Black Stars players – Ibrahim Saanie Daara to Ghanaians

Former communications director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Saanie Daara has advised Ghanaians not to rain insults on Black Stars players if they are unable to live up to expectations in certain games.

Some Black Stars players have expressed their worry about how Ghanaians go overboard to criticize the them in bad times.

Baba Rahman, who plies his trade for PAOK in Greece was verbally abused while on national duty. As a result, the former Chelsea, who is currently on top form in Greece has been dragging his feet to return to the national team.

Similarly, Gideon Mensah, who has been playing the left-back role in the absence of Baba Rahman was verbally abused by some Ghanaians when Black Stars played Central Africa Republic in Kumasi.

However, Saanie Daara, who was in attendance during the crucial fixture last Monday has called on Ghanaians to refrain insult as a means of expressing their discomfort.

“Gideon Mensah has been doing well for the Black Stars. I saw people criticizing him but it will prudent for Ghanaians to support when he get difficult times. Baba Rahman has decided to stay back from the national team because of such acts so these are the things we should be thinking about. I heard people bashing Ati-Zigi but don’t forget, he saved us days ago in Mali. We shouldn’t betray our players in they don’t get their day” he told Kessben FM monitored by

The Black Stars ended their winless run this year after recording back to back wins during the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Ghana defeated Mali 2-1 in Bamako before returning to Kumasi to snatch a 4-3 victory over Central Africa Republic.
