I will ensure we win Afcon with the right materials – Ghana FA technical director Bernhard Lippert

Techincal Director of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Bernhard Lippert has reiterated that he will do anything in his power to ensure the Black Stars win the next edition of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon].

The Black Stars qualified for the tournament after holding South Africa to a 1-1 drawn game last week Thursday at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

With the country struggling to end its 38 years Afcon trophy drought, the German coach believes with the right materials at the camp of the team, the Black Stars will surely end the trophy drought.

According to him, he has just been in the country for just five months but he will ensure the team win the trophy in the next edition of Africa’s prestigious tournament.

“I’m not long enough here to know what happened in the past time, you know I’m now five months here but I promise you I will do everything to prepare this, the staff and all the team around, the team as good as possible and I know if we bring the best players and we have a lot of good players and we bring them together as a team,” he told the media after the game on Sunday.

“I think this is the biggest problem that a lot of players play abroad, you don’t have enough time to prepare them for the qualifiers.

“It’s difficult to answer your question you know because I am really only five months here but we will do everything to bring this home and I know a lot of players also want this,” he added.

Ghana wrapped up their qualification with a 3-1 win over Sao Tome at the Accra Sports Stadium with Nicholas Opoku, Jordan Ayew and Baba Rahman scoring the goals.

The Black Stars have won the Afcon four times in the history of the country and have played in the 1992, 2010, 2015 finals but have failed to win the ultimate.
