A group of football fans in Tamale has held a press conference accusing Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah of sidelining players from the Northern part of the country.

Appiah recently excluded Ayew brothers Jordan and Andre from his squad to face Uganda next Saturday in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Mubarak Wakaso and Abdul Majeed Waris have also not been called up since Appiah returned for a second spell.

''We are therefore bringing the issue in the national interest such that the talents in some parts of the country are not left to rot,'' a portion of the statement read.

''Since the central government spends millions and millions of taxpayers money, to finance its activities, there's the need for fair inclusiveness in the national team of which the Ghana Black Stars is not exempted.

''We are therefore calling on the GFA, Black Stars management committee and government to take a look at the issue surrounding the call-up of players into the national team, but don't misconstrue this to be interference but a genuine concern in the national interest.
