The Porto forward will not play in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, as explained by his agent.

FC Porto forward Majeed Waris was part of the 28-man Ghana national team camping in the United Arab Emirates.

And after the Black Stars published the list of those who will play in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, his name was absent.

But the worst part is that he learned through Twitter, according to his agent Yussif Chibsah.

“It was always not going to be easy to be left out of the final squad for the Afcon but the coach and his technical team has the final authority over the team,” Chibsah was quoted by Goal.

“Majeed Waris was disappointed for his exclusion when he saw the news circulating on social media before he was informed officially.”

“He locked himself up in his room because he was in a bad mood after seeing it on social media, so that was why he refused to open the door when someone knocked,” he added.

“Ideally, it is the technical team that informs players of their exclusion from the team but it will depend on the channel of communication in the team.”
