Inaki Williams is ineligible for the Black Stars – Charles Taylor

Charles Taylor, a former Ghanaian international, argues that Inaki Williams of Athletic Bilbao is not qualified to play for the Black Stars and that the nation cannot rely on him.

Inaki Williams, who switched from Ghana to the United States in June 2022, has played for the Black Stars in six matches, including three during the Qatar-hosted FIFA World Cup, but he has failed to score a goal in any of them.

And according to Charles Taylor, Spain had the option of selecting either of the Williams brothers for their national squad, but they chose just Nico since they thought Inaki wasn’t good enough.

“We always want to rely on foreign-based Ghanaian players, but the question is how many of these foreign-based players are starters in their respective clubs?

“We just like cheap things, and rejected goods seem to be our priority. It really pains me that some journalists were saying all our problems were solved after securing players like Inaki Williams,” he said on Kumasi-based Akoma FM.

He added that Inaki Williams cannot save the Black Stars and Ghana should have taken a lesson from the Europeans who didn’t fight to keep him as they did with his brother Nico.

“I only smile and also see such journalists as people whose understanding of football knowledge is suspect.”

“How can our Black Stars be saved because we have Inaki Williams? Do we have better eyes than the Europeans? His gameplay cannot guarantee us any proper title.”
