2022 World Cup: Ghana coach Otto Addo not seeking revenge against Uruguay
Ghana coach Otto Addo described the game against Uruguay as normal, saying he is personally not be seeking for revenge against the South Americans.
Black Stars and Uruguay face off at the Al Janoub Stadium on Friday December 2, 2022 in the final group H game.
The two sides are in search of a ticket to the Round of 16 with Ghana needing a win to automatically seal their spot in the next round of the tournament whiles the Uruguayans are desperately in need of a win against Ghana to progress to the next round.
“Yeah just like every other match, surely we want to win this game, the good thing is even if it’s a draw”, the 47-year-old told ghanafa.org.
“I’m not really thinking about revenge, for me it’s a normal game. For me i was also sad when i watched the scene, it was a big chance for Ghana to proceed to the next stage.
The game will be a repeat of the 2010 World Cup quarter-final incident which saw Luis Suarez save his side with the handball incident as Ghana eventually bowed out of the tournament on penalty shootouts.
“But it’s 12 years ago, now it’s a different match with different approach. So, I don’t see it as a revenge,” he added.
“I am not a person who IS seeking for a revenge and as a strong believer, if you don’t seek for revenges for these things, sometimes you get more blessings from God.
“We try to do our best to win this match and we confident we can beat them.”
