Ghana international Sulley Muntari says the Black Stars? inability to win trophies is not spiritual, insisting that the team is technically good enough to dominate the continent.

The 30-year-old midfielder, who signed for Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad Jeddah this week, refutes the belief by some Ghanaians that the Black Stars could be a jinxed team.

?Ghana national team problems are not spiritual. We have got some good players in the team. We are one of the best in Africa. I still don?t understand why people say the team?s problems are spiritual,? Muntari told Starr FM.

?I think the right things are not being done. We lack organisation. The administration of our football is not efficient.?

Ghana came close to winning their first trophy in 32 years when they reached the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea early this year, but lost to neighbours Cote D?Ivoire on penalties.

?We have talented players in Ghana, but our football administrators are not doing the right thing. They don?t know how to treat people, and this keeps affecting us at major tournaments,? he said.

Muntari, who was dismissed from Ghana camp at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil for gross insubordination and subsequently handed an indefinite suspension, is yet to officially apologise to the Ghana Football Association.
