The General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association Prosper Harrison Addo has advised Ghanaians against commentating on the nationality switches of Callum Hudson-Odoi and others.
He explained that rumours about the players involved disturb the processes and make things difficult.
Recent reports from local media and England claim it is just a matter of time before Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi and Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah wear the Black Stars jersey.
A London-based Ghanaian coach earlier this week also claimed Tariq Lamptey’s nationality switch from England to Ghana is ‘done’.
“Issues of nationality switch are very complicated so therefore it is very important you always treat it with caution,” Harrison Addo said on Angel TV.
“Most at times you don’t bring such issues out to the public until the process is done. The process involves a lot; some may be immediate and others maybe take a longer period.
“No one knew when Dennis Odoi’s process was done but we brought it out to the public when everything went through.
“The parents of these players play big roles in helping when it comes to the nationality switch so it is important to always keep it on the low until it is done.
“Most of the time these rumours around disturb the process which is not right and so I will urge Ghanaians to take their time.
“We know Ghanaians are passionate about their football and so we will definitely announce any players who complete the process.”
