Former Ghana international Dan Quaye has laid blame on Black Stars midfielders for Inaki Williams’ goal-scoring struggles with the national team.

Williams, who made the switch from Spain to play for the Black Stars in June 2022, has been grappling with finding the back of the net for Ghana, with no goal in 11 games since his debut.

Quaye, a former Black Stars player, pointed to the current midfielders as a major factor in Williams’ difficulties in front of goal.

“It’s about time we reinstate some of the experienced players in the Black Stars. Inaki Williams has struggled to score for the national team since switching allegiance because of our midfielders,” Quaye asserted during an interview with Koforidua-based Bryt FM.

He further emphasised the potential role of players like Mubarak Wakaso, known for delivering accurate long balls to attackers, in helping Williams overcome his goal-scoring challenges with the Black Stars.

“Wakaso always makes sure he feeds strikers with the balls, and he has the experience for long balls, just like Sulley Muntari,” Quaye added.

Despite his difficulties at the national level, Williams is enjoying a strong start to the 2023/24 Spanish La Liga season, having already scored four goals and provided two assists in nine games for Athletic Bilbao.
