Ibrahim Sannie Daara, the former Communications Director of the GFA, has offered an advice to Mohammed Kudus as he embarks on his journey with West Ham United.
In a lengthy ‘advice’ shared on X formerly known as (X), Daara, a former BBC journalist, imparted his wisdom to the Ghanaian midfielder.
He also urged the former Ajax player to always put his family first, work hard and listen attentively to his coaches in order to have flourish career.
“One of the pitfalls for several ex-African footballers is excessive womanising. Those who married early stayed grounded and were successful. Good examples are Abedi Pele and Stephen Appiah,” Daara wrote.
“Avoid them. Divorce rates for Ghanaian footballers when they retire is high because the fame and fortune is gone.
“The mind-blowing photos of women on social media doesn’t show their true character. You must know that most of them are attracted to you because of your fame and perceived fortune.
“Ask yourself this: ‘Will this woman be interested in marrying me if I was staying in Nima and playing for Accra Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League?’ If the answer is ‘no’ then that’s your red flag.”
He also emphasized on how Kudus should stand on his feet to consume every criticisms and setbacks.
“MEDIA SCRUTINY – Deal with scrutiny from fans and media maturely. Develop resilience to handle setbacks and criticism, as football can be challenging.
