However, Afena-Gyan failed to show up for the call-up yet again.

“It depends on what the boy has in mind and what he wants to achieve. But in all fairness, if you get the chance to play for the national team, you need to take it in good faith,” Akonnor told Accra based Happy FM.

Despite rejecting Black Stars call-ups, Akonnor believes Afena-Gyan will not leave Ghana for Italy.

“I don’t think he is looking forward to playing for Italy,” the coach said.
