‘I felt bad for not playing at the World Cup’ – Midfield-gem Majeed Ashimeru


Ghanaian midfield-gem Majeed Ashimeru Majeed Ashimeru says he felt really bad for not making it to the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar with the Black Stars team.

According to him, it is every player’s dream and aspiration to don the national team jersey and play at the FIFA Mundial which is considered the biggest and most entertaining tournament on earth.

Nonetheless, the midfielder says he had no option than to offer his support to the team especially when his close friends, Salis Abdul Samed and AFC Ajax Amsterdam star player Kudus Mohammed were involved in the tournament for Ghana.

“Seeing Samed Salis at the World Cup makes me happy because he is someone I always talk to every day and with Kudus (Mohammed), he is like a younger brother to me because we grew up in the same hood and me seeing them at the World Cup makes me happy,” he told 3Sports

“The World Cup is the biggest football tournament in the world and every player wants to play the World Cup,” he said.

“Personally, I felt bad for not playing at the World Cup but I also felt these are my guys and they need my support,” he added.

The Ghanaian international did not get into the Black Stars team for the tournament in Qatar late 2022 due to injury worries.
