The 1991 U-17 World Cup champion confessed during an interview with Oscar Nuwati on SVTV Sports that he had been called disrespectful due of his haircut and ear piercing. He claims that former Black Stars coach Otto Pfister informed him that the leaders frequently made disparaging remarks about him.
