Ghana soccer coach Goran Stevanovic says team used witchcraft on each other

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? Feel free to voice your opinion in the comments section if you’re familiar with this type of practice.

Nigerian Soccer Captain Accuses Ghana of Using Black Magic Before Game

Ghana beat Nigeria 2-0 in an Under 23 game Sunday, and Nigerian captain Kingsley Udoh thinks there was some funny business going on. Specifically, Udoh says Ghana used black magic against them before the game.

“We had to dress up for the game outside the dressing room because they scattered ‘juju’ (objects of black magic some believe can cause all kinds of harm) everywhere in the room and we didn’t want to touch anything,” Udoh told reporters. “We had to be very careful because the Ghanaians were ready to do anything to win the match and you saw how they attacked us on Saturday. The whole situation affected some of my teammates and we could not play our usual game,” Udoh said.

This is no joke. Udoh seemed genuinely spooked. He really went on about the black magic affecting them.
