“Otto Addo Should Give Afriyie Barnieh More Playing Time” - Hearts of Oak Legend

Hearts of Oak forward, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh made probably the shortest Black Stars appearance against Nicaragua in a pre World Cup friendly on Tuesday.

Black Stars coach, Otto Addo introduced Barnieh on the 91st minute in a 1-0 victory over Nicaragua in Spain.

The late appearance by the 2021 Africa U-20 Cup winner has irked some Ghanaian football fans and ex-international, Laryea Kingston subtly shares in their assertions.

“I think [Daniel] Afriyie Barnieh is excited to even be on the pitch because he is playing with the senior national team.

“But I want to see Otto Addo make substitutions after 70th minute, you need to bring players on.

“But I’m not there, but from where I’m sitting, I believe he was in control.

“I will make sure I will make the substitution, bring fresh legs to on the pitch as soon as possible as soon as possible after 70th minute and make sure that we get to fhe opponent.

“Afriyie Barnieh for me I will like to see him come on very early so that he will also show what he has.

“I think it’s not right for Otto [Addo] to push him in the last minute.

“Maybe it could be tactical change to wile away time but I will prefer him coming on and I’m sure that Afriyie Barnieh will be excited to play for the Black Stars.” Laryea Kingston told Radio Gold Talk Sport.
