Former Black Stars striker, Prince Tagoe, has expressed support for ex-Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien’s decision to reject any opportunity to help coach the Black Stars. Essien recently obtained the UEFA A and UEFA Elite Youth Coach licenses, which would make him eligible to coach at the highest level. However, according to Nigerian journalist Lolade Adewuyi, he has declared his unwillingness to coach the Black Stars in the future. Tagoe, who played alongside Essien in the Black Stars, believes that Essien’s response was due to bitterness stemming from the treatment he suffered from Ghanaians in his playing days.

Tagoe believes that Essien’s experience could help Ghana’s football, but he believes that it is always right for Essien to reject any offer to coach the Black Stars. He stated, “Essien wasn’t cherished anymore by Ghanaians. He is a player who has a high profile like Stephen Appiah, and these are the people who can help Ghana’s football. Essien was absolutely not treated well, and he is right if he says he doesn’t want to go near the Black Stars.

” Essien played for the Black Stars and made 58 appearances, scoring nine goals. After winning multiple titles, including the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League, Essien retired from professional football in 2020. He is now a coach at FC Nordjaelland in Denmark. The former Black Stars striker’s opinion on Essien’s decision has sparked a debate among Ghanaians. Some have supported Essien’s decision, while others have criticized him, stating that he should put his country first.

However, Tagoe’s stance on the issue has gained traction among Ghanaians who believe that Essien deserves more respect for his contributions to Ghana’s football. In conclusion, while some may disagree with Essien’s decision, it is essential to recognize the personal experiences that have influenced his decision. It is also crucial to acknowledge that Essien’s contributions to Ghana’s football are not limited to his playing days and that his coaching skills could be beneficial to the country’s football development.
