Ghana coach, Avram Grant, is under pressure to drop unpopular goalkeeper, Razak Braimah ahead of the Black Stars’ semi-final clash against Cameroon in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations following his verbal attack on critics.

Braimah’s broadside which contained the ‘F’ word has angered local fans in an unimaginable heights.

The Spain-based goalkeeper, who has made just two appearances for Cordoba, has become the ‘chewing stick’ for angry fans who are demanding for ultimate punishment.

Braimah’s outburst has broken team spirit and destroyed the confidence reposed in him by the coach and his backroom staff.

The 29-year-old reprehensible and shocking comment has received divided opinion with the sort of punishment to be handed him as majority of Ghanaian fans clamour for his immediate sack from the team.

Many believe he has killed the spirit of the team as it has clouded the Black Stars semi-final clash against the Indomitable Lions tomorrow.

Grant, a former Chelsea Manager is now reeling under pressure to leave him out of his final squad ahead of the crunch tie.

The former Nania FC player has not received the backing of local fans since he was included in the final 23-man squad for the biannual showpiece and his action is seen as a response to fans’ criticism of his performance.-Ghanasoccernet
