Joseph Paintsil challenges Hughton’s fatigue claim after half-time substitution


Black Stars winger Joseph Paintsil has disputed Coach Chris Hughton’s claim that fatigue led to his substitution during the crucial 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) match against Mozambique.

Paintsil, a standout performer, played a key role in earning Ghana a penalty, but he was surprisingly replaced at halftime. Hughton defended the decision, citing fatigue.

In response, Paintsil questioned, “What fatigue?” in a video circulating on social media. Despite Ghana doubling their lead through Jordan Ayew, Mozambique staged a comeback, securing a draw.

Ghana’s chances of progressing in the tournament now depend on other match outcomes.
