”We are not playing for money”- Christian Atsu

Ghana’s mercurial midfielder ,Christian Atsu has said that their quest to win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) goes beyond money.
“We want to win something for Ghana. We have been in this competition for long and always go home without the cup” Atsu said
“Ghanaians are not happy. We are determined to win this cup and it has nothing to do with money.
“With or without money, we will do our best to win the cup for Ghana”. Atsu noted.
According to Atsu, money is important in football adding that football today is all about money.
“We play so we deserved to be paid because i’ts our profession. The state will not take care of us when we go on pension.He lamented
“So whatever is due us must be given to us. But we are not saying without the money we will not play for the country.He explained
“Money is secondary. All we want to do here is to win the competition for Ghanaians to be happy.“ Atsu stated.
Commenting on his role in the team, Atsu said that he prefers to operate from the flanks because he is able to take on his opponents without looking back.
“In the previous AFCON, I played as number 10, but I always had to look back because of tackles but as a winger I am comfortable playing as a winger”. He added.
Christian Atsu,who was the tournament’s best player in the previous AFCON is very confident of Ghana’s success in the tournament.He feels that Ghana has got what it takes to win the trophy.
Atsu won the Total Man of the Match in the opening match against Uganda and produced an equally excellent performance against Uganda in the second match of the group.
