AFCON 2019: Frustrate Benin – Ghana legend Jabir


Ghana legend Malik Jabir has called on the Black Stars to make life unbearable on the field for their Beninois counterparts in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group F fixture.

Jabir, who is well known on the continent, acknowledged that football in Benin has improved hence the Stars must not underrate them.

“Benin was not too good at football those days, they are now coming into the picture, if you want to know them well just compare them to Togo because the French speaking countries have similar style of play, technically they are good but they don’t like harassment,” Malik told Fox FM in Kumasi.

He added: “If you allow them to play their way they will hurt you, harass them, let them be chasing the ball and that’s the way”.

Ghana will face Benin this evening in Ismailia before rounding up the Group stages with games against defending champions Cameroon and minnows Guines Bissau.
