Ghana attacker Christian Atsu is delighted the national team has resolved captaincy issues to prepare for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I don’t mind who becomes the captain in the Black Stars team,” said the Newcastle United player to Goal.

“Anyone appointed as the captain by the coach would receive the same support and respect he deserves.”

He added: “We as players support our captain and that is what we would do to win the cup.”

“We all heard what went on regarding the captaincy but now the President has come in to resolve the problem.”

“So, our focus is to go and win the Cup for Ghana,” he said.

“All the players are happy that everything has died down.”

“We are determined and don’t want any problems in camp again,” Atsu said.

“You know sometimes as a family we have problems but we are able to solve it as mature people.”

“Sometimes even after breaking camp, problems come but we solve them ourselves, so I believe it is good that we are able to solve our problems when they come,” he concluded.
