Bechem United midfielder, Augustine Okrah, has reportedly rejected a call-up to the senior national team for the 4 Nation tournament in Japan.
The 28 year old was initially named in Otto Addo’s 33-man squad for the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Madagascar and Central African Republic, but was later dropped for the trip to Central African Republic.
The former Kotoko player was then called again for the 4 Nation Tournament in Japan, which is part of the team’s preparation for the World Cup in Qatar, but has reportedly turned down.
Bechem United CEO Kingsley Osei Bonsu, confirmed the development saying, “I spoke to Okrah to go but he says he won’t play and is not ready to go.”
Okrah then posted a cryptic message on his official Twitter page that seemingly corroborated his CEO’s remarks.
“There is more to life”, he tweeted, along with a picture on himself in action for Bechem United.
Okrah was one of two Ghana Premier League players including Hearts of Oak’s , Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, named in Otto Addo’s initial 33-man squad for the four games.
Ghana will face Japan on June 10, before facing either Chile or Tunisia days later.
