Mohammed Salisu sorry for reaction towards media, Ghanaians after clash in Ivory Coast

Following Ghana's crippling disposal from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), defender Mohammed Salisu has released an earnest expression of remorse to disheartened sports journalists.

The Black Stars were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw against Mozambique because they were unable to secure a crucial victory, which resulted in their premature exit from the tournament.

Ghanaians, including members of the media, were furious after the game and expressed their dissatisfaction with the team's performance. In a video that went viral, Salisu got into a heated argument with journalists who had been critical of the players, even making threats.

Mohammed Salisu, who has since returned to his French club Monaco, issued a sincere statement expressing regret for his actions several days after the incident. The center back extended his apologies for Ghana's overall subpar performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and expressed deep regret for the team's performance.

"It is with the deepest regret that I am writing to you about our disappointing campaign in the 2023 AFCON," Salisu said in his statement. As you are all aware, we went to the tournament with the goal of winning it, but it was rather unfortunate that we were eliminated in the group stage. We gave without question, everything, except we couldn't tie down the essential successes to keep us in the competition."

Salisu continued by apologizing to anyone he might have offended in a sincere and unconditional manner. He highlighted the group's commitment to returning more grounded in ongoing rivalries. In addition, the statement expressed appreciation to the fans for their unwavering support throughout the tournament.

In the meantime, Chris Hughton, Ghana's coach, has been let go by the Ghana Football Association (AFCON). A panel has been quickly settled to look for a reasonable substitution effectively. The nation is currently concentrating on regaining its footballing prowess for the upcoming competitions.

Salisu explained, "My actions toward the media were out of frustration," acknowledging the players' and fans' angst. We went to the 2023 AFCON to win the prize, yet things didn't go according to plan. Everybody will bear me witness; Because the previous game was unacceptable, the fans have every right to criticize us, but not to the point of insulting us or threatening us.
