The Black Stars’ goalkeeper, who was part of the team that qualified Ghana for the World Cup in Qatar has moved from English league two side Swindon Town to league one side Charlton Athletic. Jojo Wollacot has joined his former coach Ben Garner who coached him at Swindon Town.
With some amazing saves, he helped Ghana qualify for the World Cup and he also recorded 11 clean sheets for Swindon Town last season.
Despite the fact that most Ghanaians attacked the football association for inviting him into the black stars because of the team and division he was playing in, he has a very good objective, as he stated in an interview, claiming that he wants to play for top European teams and win trophies.
However, he has obviously proven most of his critics wrong by making several amazing stops to deny the top Nigerian strikers in Victor Oshimen, Odion Ighalo, and others during the African World Cup qualifying playoffs, so assisting Ghana to qualify.
Although it appears that Jojo Wollacot’s place in the national team is secure, some Ghanaians continue to carry grudges against him, claiming that it is not appropriate for the national team’s first goalie to be playing in the second division league.
