    Default Joe "Akoloso" Addo- Milo Must Be Left Alone

    Former Black Stars’ libero, Joe Addo, has joined the pro Coach Milo crusade, trumpeting from his US base, an unflinching support for the Serbian trainer.

    According to the ace defender, the unparalleled record of coach Milo, vis a vis his predecessors, must ensure his continued stay as the head coach of the Black Stars.

    He has, therefore, called on all Ghanaians to rally behind the coach, rather than criticizing him and calling for his head.

    Speaking on Happy FM’s “Where are they?” morning programme yesterday, he mentioned that: “If I get his post, I will gladly accept it, but I will not criticize him because I am interested.”

    He pointed out that: “Ghanaians are fond of calling for the head of coaches. The coach knows he will be fired if he fails, so let’s allow him to operate freely.”

    To Joe Addo, never in the history of Ghana football has a coach achieved so much for the country –like being the first country to qualify for the 2010 World Cup, qualified the local components of the Stars to the maiden CHAN tourney, finished as losing finalists in the 27th Nations Cup in Angola.

    The former Hearts of Oak, VFB Stuttgart, FSV Frankfurt player described the Black Stars future as very bright, and called on all and sundry to pray for the players and allow coach Milo a free hand to operate.

    Having finished his coaching course in the US, Joe Addo, the George Mason Men’s Soccer Hall of famer revealed that he drew inspiration from former centre backs as Kuuku Dadzie, Ahmed Rockson, Collins Paha and Isaac Acquaye in his early playing years, hence the resemblance of his style of play to them.

    He, however, noted that coaches like the late Buckhard Ziese and his European club coaches cautioned him about his style. “Coach Ziese and other coaches in Europe realized that my style was risky, because I am the last man, and if I lose the ball, disaster will strike, but I was confident and comfortable with my style,’ said the university graduate, and now coach.
    Addo added that after his successful soccer career in Ghana, he played in the US league for five years.

    Thereafter, he pursued a Business/Football Administration courses. During his career at George Mason, he featured in 37 games, scoring eleven goals and having six assists. He was the member of the bronze winning Olympic team in 1992.

    Joe Addo recalled his 2-2 equalizer for Hearts, against Asante Kotoko with pride.
    He noted that he loves playing before the Kumasi fans because he never faltered playing at the then Kumasi Stadium (now Baba Yara).

    Among his playing mates were Afo Dodoo, Kwame Ayew, Sammy Adjei, Sammy Osei Kuffuor, Nana Banyin Crentsil among others.

    He is very close to striker Augustine Arhinful, who was with him at the time of the interview.
