According to GHANAsoccernet, manager Chris Hughton, his backroom staff and the Black Stars squad disapprove of the training conditions the team have been subjected to in Kumasi.

The four-time African champions were originally set to hold their pre-AFCON training camp in Johannesburg, South Africa, but after public backlash, the Ghana Football Association decided to base them in their home country to prepare for the continental showpiece.

That decision now seems to have backfired as the same report claims that after deeming the pitch at the Baba Yara Stadium unsuitable for training, the team’s technical staff was forced to change the venue of their first session to the Dr. Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.

While the last-minute alterations to their preparations have angered the Black Stars, though, it is believed everybody involved with the team is still dedicated to making sure they go to Ivory Coast in the best condition.
