Former Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu says he would rather prefer winning the Africa Cup of Nations than qualifying for the FIFA World Cup.
The U-20 World Cup winner, who currently plies his trade in China with Qingdao Huanghai, revealed that the AFCON trophy is a priority for the players and the country.
“For me, I will prefer winning the Afcon even more than qualifying to the World Cup, that is my opinion,” Badu told Starr FM.
“I have gone to five Afcons, I won the U20 World Cup, I know what I have gained when I won it.
“So just imagine after 40 years, if these my brothers there can win the Afcon, it will be a huge impact on their career and for the nation, so I will prefer that.”
Ghana have been draw in Group C of next year’s Africa Cup of Nation alongside Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.
The country has not won the continental trophy since 1982.
