Former Ghanaian youth player Arago Jamal has now switched nationality to play for the Lone Stars of Liberia at the senior level.

In an interview with local sport portal, he says his reasons for switching to Liberia is personal and has nothing to do with the snub from Ghana.

“I took the decision based on some personal reasons,” he said.

According to him, his decision to switch nationality is personal and has nothing to do with lack of attention from Ghana.

His vision is clearly set out as he targets success with the Lone Stars.

“To help the country to get to a better level in terms of progressing to tournaments because as it stands, we all see it’s been ages we haven’t seen the team made it to top competitions,” he added.
