Ghana U-17 coach Abdul Karim Zito is worried at the neglect of the national U-23 team, the Black Meteors, who are set to begin qualifiers for the Africa U-23 championship.


The Black Meteors will face neighbours Togo in the first round of the qualifiers for a place in Egypt next year.

However, the national U-23 team seems to have been ignored despite the international assignment next month and Karim Zito feels the team was not receiving the right attention.

“Our Black Meteors seem neglected which is very shocking,“ Zito told Ghanacrusader radio.

Meanwhile, the former Dreams FC gaffer is also lamenting over the transitioning of players from the youth national teams to the senior side.

“We should have a transitional plan or system in our various national teams where Black starlets should continue to the Black Satellites and Black satellites to Black meteors and finally meteors to Black Stars.”

The Black Meteors is eyeing a place in next year’s tournament to be held in Egypt. Ghana has missed out on the new Olympics Games qualifying tournament since its introduction in 2011.
