FORMER Ghana striker Anthony Yeboah has called on players of the Black Stars to remain focused on games at the Nations Cup and stop the excessive “jama” in camp.
The Stars are known for dancing and singing morale-boosting songs known as jama – before games at international competitions.
But Yeboah believes the act is becoming too much and it takes a toll on them in games.
According to the former Leeds United goal-poacher, the jama sessions makes the players tired before games.
“Sometimes, players got tired after singing jama before a match. The Stars lost focus which resulted in conceding an early goal against Benin. It could be as a result of tiredness.
“The players should concentrate on the matches rather than singing jama. It is becoming too much for the players to get involved in such act,” he asserted.
Ghana began their Nations Cup campaign with a disappointing 2-2 draw against West African neighbours Benin.
The team needs a win in their next game against Cameroon today to enhance their chances of progress at the tournament in Egypt. – GhanaSoccernet
