Black Stars midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has issued a rallying call on all Ghanaians to support the Black Stars as they embark on the quest for a fifth Nations Cup trophy.

The Udinese midfielder wants to see fans motivating players when they take to the field in Gabon.

Ghanaians have, in recent times, showed an apathetic attitude towards the Black Stars when it comes to spectatorship and that has led to reports that the team will be without most of their fans when the Africa Cup of Nations begins in Gabon.

Revelations from Ghana’s failed World Cup appearance in 2014 have seen the interest in the team wane, with recent World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches being played in almost empty stadia after fans declined to show up.

But Agyeman Badu believes the support of the fans will be crucial if Ghana is to leave a mark at the tournament, and urged Ghanaians to show support to the Black Stars.

“As we have been saying always, they only thing we need is the support from the fans,” he told a section of the press.

“We want them to rally behind us and motivate us, that is the only way we can go all out to realize the dream, when we know that the fans are behind us.
