Of all the African teams in the 2012 World Cup, Ghana was the most successful. That is what made their fourth place finish in the 2012 African Cup of Nations a disappointment, and left head coach Goran Stevanovic in search of an explanation. Since we’re talking about Ghana, the only logical factor at play could have been witchcraft and black magic.
“We all need to help in changing some players’ mentality about using ‘black power’ to destroy themselves, and also make sure we instil discipline and respect for each other,” Stevanovic said according to the BBC.
“After losing to Zambia, there arose so many accusations amongst the players. I have learnt great lessons from African football and also about Ghanaian players’ behaviour on and off the field.”
When will people learn? You really have to watch out for Ghana when it comes to using witchcraft. The thing that confuses me is why they would choose to use it against one another. Over the summer, Ghana scored a victory over Nigeria thanks in part to their captain using black magic before the match. It worked so well before, so it makes no sense for them to turn it on themselves. Maybe this is a way to keep the competition guessing?
