There’s no player in the world who hasn’t missed a penalty before – Otto Addo defends Dede

Former Black Stars Coach, Otto Addo has defended Black Stars Captain, Andre Dede Ayew,  for missing a penalty in Ghana’s final group game against Uruguay in the 2022 World Cup.

At the Al Janoub Stadium on Friday December 2, Dede Ayew missed a penalty in the 21st minutes which could’ve given Ghana the lead against Uruguay before they conceded two goals from Uruguay’s Giorgian de Arrascaeta.

After the Black Stars exit, football fanatics took to social media to lambast the Ayew.

But Otto believes the situation wasn’t strange in football.

“There’s no human being in the world who hasn’t missed a penalty, this is part of football, congratulations to the goalkeeper, he was really good today,”Otto Addo said in a post match press conference.

After his press conference, Otto Addo shared a picture of Dede Ayew scoring a penalty in Black Stars’ World Cup qualifier against South Africa with the caption, “We will get even stronger from this” & another one with “Nobody should forget… We wouldn’t have been there without you”
