Dauda Lutterodt assistant coach of the local Black Stars has thrown his weight behind Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah on his choice of players that made the provisional list for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.The coach, who spoke with JOY Sports after the release of the list at the Ghana FA secretariat, said the gaffer had his reasons to omit some big names as John Mensah, Richard Kingson.On Monday Appiah, released a 26-man list of players that will fight for places in the final 23-man squad that will make it to the World Cup next month, with some notable names missing.Forward Mahatma Otto who has been in a scintillating form for Norwegian side Sogndal was a notable omission on the list.But Lutterodt insisted that the task of choosing a player into a team was a very tasking one and the coach had to take so many things into consideration before arriving at his final list.“I keep saying that the most difficult job in the world is the job of coaching. It’s a very tasking job and it is even more so in this country.“Let us all wish him (Appiah) well. Whatever list he comes out with, he has his reasons. The most difficult list that he is yet to bring out is the list of 23. Everybody may be good enough in all the departments and he has to take a decision.“If they ask all of you to bring a list, you will each bring a different list. So, the list he has brought is okay,” he noted.The experience coach pointed out that Appiah has both technical and psychology reasons to have invited each of the players in the list. “For Appiah to have dropped any player, he has the reasons for dropping that player. You don’t know those reasons, I don’t know those reasons.”He said from his understanding of the coach who according to him, loves to win, he wouldn’t drop any player if he believes such player will help him succeed.
