Former Accra Hearts of Oak winger Bernard Don Bortey has revealed that Ghanaians did not help him when he was playing for the national teams.
In an interview with Oteng Appau Papin on Onua FM, the Humble Lion, as he was nicknamed, said Ghana could have won the world cup with him if he was handled well.
There were a lot of rumours that he was a bad influence in camp and that really affected his career as a footballer.
“I am a prophet but people didn’t believe me,” he said.
“God brought me here on earth to win trophies for Ghana. Whatever, I say I would do, I make sure it’s done, in one of the matches that I played.
“I predicted I would score four goals and it came to pass. It is not easy to score four goals in one game,” he recounted.
According to him, he started playing for the Black Stars with great players like Sam Johnson and Augustine Arhinful and was not afraid of being in camp with them because he was confident.
Dada Don Bortey aside playing for Accra Hearts of Oak in Ghana, played for Santos FC in South Africa and Panthers in Equatorial Guinea at club level.
He also played at all levels of the national teams.
