Former Ghana midfielder, Sulley Muntari has criticized Black Stars for the use of TikTok and other social media platforms while preparing for games.
Speaking to 3Sports, The former AC Milan and Inter Milan midfielder said players must always remain focused to give their all on the pitch and, after that, they can do whatever they want on social media.
According to him, young players must be particular about the timing of being on social media in order not to be distracted before a match.
“I won’t say it’s bad, but it’s the time… they can still do it but then it’s the preparation that you can direct them in the right way,” Muntari said.
“You can’t allow a little kid to be in the changing room using Tiktok whiles you’re getting ready to go on the field and warm up and go play a really important game that maybe 30 million people are waiting to watch and their heart and hope is on you.”
“You can do it in a way that you can do your TikTok after the game because then you instill that in his mind that whatever you do here goes with you.
“So by doing that, putting them in the right environment, you run when its 90 minutes, you can go do your Tiktok, party, chill but when it comes to playing you really have to dedicate yourself in there.”
The Black Stars have exited the 2022 World Cup at the group phase with just three points after three games played.
