Agyemang Badu pray for injury-free team

Ghana midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu is praying the Black Stars team stays injury-free as they prepare for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

The Udinese midfield enforcer believes having every key player available will help the team to achieve their target.

“So far everything is going on well,” the ex-Kotoko midfielder told Montie FM.

“Fortunately, we have (Mubarak) Wakaso and John Boye too in camp. We are hoping for an injury-free and see what will happen in Spain – and after that, we tackle the tournament in Equatorial Guinea,” he noted.

The 2009 U-20 World Cup winner also had words of praise for Black Stars coach Avram Grant.

“He (Avram Grant) has been wonderful, thank God, no injuries; we are enjoying the tactics of the coach and we’re learning so much from him.

“He’s a wonderful coach, we laugh with each other and he made us aware that we have to be free and do whatever we want on the pitch,” he added.

“We’re hoping we can learn the tactics fast and continue like this and tackle the tournament and do something for the country.”

Emmanuel Agyemang Badu couldn’t hide his delight of representing Ghana in his fourth Afcon.

“I think every player wants to [be at the] AFCON; so I’m very, very proud to be there and I’m hoping to do something for the nation.”

Agyemang Badu has played every African Cup for the Black Stars since 2010.
