Ghana coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, has explained the reason behind Abdul Fatawu Issahaku's no-show during the double international friendlies against Morocco and Ivory Coast.

The talented youngster failed to make his Black Stars debut despite being included in the team for the trip to Rabat and in Cape Coast.

"I am amazed by Issahaku’s talent and I was hoping he comes on in the last 10 minutes against Ivory Coast but from the way the game was going, I couldn’t," explained C.K Akonnor.

“I have had a chat with him and he is already happy to be part of the Black Stars," he added.

Issahaku, tipped as the next big star of Ghanaian football would have to wait for the next international assignment to be handed a shot at his debut.

“He has a great future and he is the hope for the future and I wish him the best of luck," the coach said.

The 19-year-old has reportedly signed for Liverpool after an outstanding U-20 Cup of Nations with the Black Satellites.

He was named Most Valuable Player as Ghana won the competition for the third time.
