The players' attitude in camp on his first day at work has encouraged the second in command of the west African side to pat them on the back for their efforts

The assistant coach of Ghana, Maxwell Konadu, has tipped the current squad of the Black Stars to achieve laurels judging from what he observed on his first day at work.

Konadu, who had his first training session with the team alongside head coach, Kwesi Appiah, on Monday, is buoyant about the team’s chances to beat Lesotho and Zambia in their forthcoming 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

He was so impressed with the mindset of the players who are already in camp and was hopeful that throwing their total support behind the head coach will see Ghana achieving laurels at the senior level once more.

“I believe this team will go far,” Konadu told “The attitude is very positive.”

“We’re here to support the head coach to succeed. The players have promised to give off their 100 per cent. With the confidence the head coach has, we all know we’re going to do well,” Konadu, who doubles as Asante Kotoko coach added.

The four-time Africa champions held their first training session at the Accra Sports Stadium on Monday.

The training was part of Ghana's preparations towards the 2014 World Cup qualifying against Lesotho on June 1 before the June 9 clash against Zambia.
