President of the Republic of Ghana Akufo-Addo has echoed the voices of the masses by calling for Callum Hudson-Odoi to switch nationality and play for Ghana.
The Chelsea winger is currently in Ghana for the post-season holidays after winning the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea.
But the call for a switch in nationality has been mooted over the past couple of days that he has been here after being snubbed by England for the upcoming Euros.
In an interview with Joy Sport, the 20-year-old refused to close the door on a possible switch in nationality.
“I think obviously when you’re young, you have the opportunity to play for England throughout all the years, from under 15 to under 16 all the way up.”
“When they obviously gave me the opportunity to come I was in the country already. It’s something that I already had in my mind, set on already playing for England.”
“So it was the thing obviously choosing Ghana or England, and at the end of the day I said I always had the right people around me who always advise me – what’s right, what’s wrong. England came and I said ‘Yeah, let me go and play for my country.
“But I said Ghana is my home as well, so we’ll see, we’ll see. You’ll never know, so,” he said whilst giggling.
