Ali Jaraa has shared his opinion on the Black Stars’ goalkeeping position as it has been a fight between Lawrence Ati-Zigi Richard Ofori, Joojo Wollacot and Abdul Nurudeen. None of these four keepers can boldly say he is the undisputed number one goalkeeper as the last two years have seen these four goalkeepers just getting the chance to claim the number one slot.
“We have differences between form and experience, you can’t blend that. Ofori is one of the mature keepers we have in the system. Wallocot and Ati Zigi are coming, they have more years, they need to learn from the mature one” Ali Jara said on Max TV.
Ali Jaraa was once tipped to be the biggest goalkeeper for Ghana after a wonderful performance for Accra Hearts of Oak and the Ghana U-17 team in the U-17 World Cup in Japan in 1993. Ghana finished as runner-up to Nigeria after losing 2-1 in the finals.
Ali Jaraa’s career ended after getting injured in a Super Clash game in 1993 between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko as Kotoko won 1-0 through Frimpong Manso’s 89th-minute penalty. Ali Jaraa never recovered from the back pain he suffered after the Super Clash tie.
Ghana will play against Cape Verde, Egypt and Mozambique in the 2023 AFCON as the battle for Ghana’s number-one goalkeeper continues.
