Ghana coach Kwasi Appiah has explained his decision not to give game time to Inter Milan ace Kwadwo Asamoah in the 1-0 win over Kenya on Saturday was tactical.
Appiah revealed he preferred Gotzepe's Lumor Agbenyenu in the position left back to Asamoah who has been converted into the role at Juventus and at his current club.
The ex-Ghana captain also stated he had plans to Asamoah deploy in midfield
''Actually, Kwadwo Asamoah was in my plans, as to whether he will start or sit on the bench you know I have to make the final decision,'' Appiah said at the post-match conference.
''For some time now I have been using Lumor, and I believe that he had to start so that along the line I may bring Kwadwo in.
''I was looking Kwadwo in a way that I might use him at the back or use him in the midfield role.
''So I decided to keep him on the bench for now so as the game went on I will think of whether to bring him or not.'
