Coach Maxwell Konadu has expressed his frustration over the uncertainty surrounding Black Stars B camping date ahead of 2020 CHAN qualifiers and WAFU tournament.
Ghana will host Burkina Faso in the first leg on 26th September before traveling to Ouagadougou for the return fixture which is set to be played after the WAFU tournament in Senegal.
The locally based national side were scheduled to resume camp in Kumasi on Wednesday but a last minute change of plan by the Sports Ministry meant that the team is still yet to start preparations.
A situation that is causing unease for the technical team who were hoping to get the boys in shape in time for the tie.
With no league ongoing, the technical was hoping to start training early so that they will prepare well for the games.
“We’ve named the squad so we are waiting for authorities to give us the green light so we will call the players for us to start training.”
“We are the defending champions, we’ve won the WAFU twice, it’s (now) the third time and if we win, we win it for keep so if we go to camp early and prepare early and prepare well it will help us all to be able to go and make Ghana proud in Senegal” he said this in an interview with FOX Fm.

2020 CHAN qualifier: Black Stars B fail to qualify for third straight CHAN tournament
Ghana missed on qualification to the 2020 African Nations Championship on Sunday after drawing 0-0 with Burkina Faso in the final round qualifier.
The result meant the Black Stars B got eliminated 1-0 on aggregate after suffering defeat at home in the first leg tie at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The Local Black Stars beat the Stallions 4-1 on penalties two weeks ago en route to reaching the final of the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations in Senegal.
But Maxwell Konadu and his charges could not replicate that feat and got knocked out of the competition.
Since losing the 2014 finals in South Africa, Ghana have now failed to qualify for the last two tournaments played in Rwanda (2016) and Morocco (2018).
Hearts beat Olympics on penalties to win 2019 Homowo Cup
Accra Hearts of Oak prevailed on penalties to beat city rivals, Great Olympics, to win the 2019 Homowo Cup played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
The teams were playing in the second leg of the match after last week’s goalless first leg and a winner needed to be found.
Hearts started well and went close in the 10th and 15th minutes of the first half with attempts from Emmanuel Mintah and Kofi Kordzi but they could not find the net until the 70th minute.
Mitchelle Sarpong scored for Hearts but two minutes later, Olympics were back in the game with a goal from Iddrisu Saler.
There were no more goals in regulation time and so, penalties were needed to find a winner.
Hearts were perfect from the spot with their first three kicks but Olympics only scored one of their first three kicks and that gave the trophy to Hearts of Oak.
