Mahatma Otoo says he is calm about his continuous snub by national team coach Kwasi Appiah for international assignments.
Despite showing good form in the just ended season, the Turkey-based striker was once again overlooked when a 21-man squad was named for the Black Stars’ upcoming double header friendlies.
Ghana are set to play the Samurai Blue of Japan first on May 30 before coming up against Iceland on June 7.
Speaking on GHOne TV’s Cheers show, Otoo, who scored 13 goals for Balikesirspor, believes he will certainly have another opportunity in the senior national team.
“Kwasi Appiah was the one who invited me to the Black Stars for the first time so he knows what I can do.
“He has explained he’s building a new squad so since he knows me already, he wants to have a look at other strikers so when the time comes to introduce Mahatma, I’m sure he will do exactly that,” the former Hearts of Oak star said on the GHOne TV show.
“I’ve worked under him before so I know he will do that [invite me] at the right time,” Mahatma reiterated.
After games for Ghana’s team B, Mahatma Otoo was handed his first team A call-up by none other than current coach Kwasi Appiah ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Sudan in 2013.
The 26-year-old is, however, yet to convince Appiah for a recall to the national outfit since the latter returned for a second spell with the Black Stars last year.
