“Why did Dede even jubilate when he scored that goal, it’s as if we are okay and when he was going off the bench he was still celebrating. So the whole team does not have focus. On the field of play, we lose focus. Look, I am yet to see a football team do this,” he told host, Kojo Yankson on Friday

“When we start a match and you score the first goal you take the ball to the centre, do you know what it does to the other team physiologically? Look at the second guy too.”
