Former Ghana international Charles Taylor has claimed that Bilbao striker Inaki Williams is not good enough to play for the Black Stars or for the country to rely on him.
Inaki, who made his Ghana debut in June 2022, switched nationality and featured in all three games for the Black Stars at the FIFA World Cup 2022 without scoring.
Charles Taylor on Kumasi-based Akoma FM expressed doubts about Inaki Williams’ abilities, stating that Spain had the opportunity of drafting both Williams brothers to their national team, but chose only Nico because they deemed Inaki not good for their team.
He also questioned Ghana’s over-reliance on foreign-based players, particularly those who are not regular starters for their clubs.
He vented his rage and chastised journalists who claimed that Williams’ inclusion in the team had solved all of Ghana’s problems.
“We always want to rely on foreign-based Ghanaian players, but the question is how many of these foreign- based players are starters in their respective clubs?
“We just like cheap things, and rejected goods seem to be our priority…It really pains me that some journalists were saying all our problems were solved after securing players like Inaki Williams”.
He also emphasized that Inaki Williams cannot save the Black Stars and Ghana should have taken a lesson from the Europeans who didn’t fight to keep him as they did with his brother Nico.
“I only smile and also see such journalists as people whose understanding of football knowledge is suspect.
“How can our Black Stars be saved because we have Inaki Williams? Do we have better eyes than the Europeans? His gameplay cannot guarantee us any proper title.”
Meanwhile, Inaki Williams, who plays for Athletic Bilbao, is yet to register a goal for Ghana despite making six appearances.
