2014 World Cup: Anderlect winger Frank Acheampong holds no grudges over Brazil snub by Ghana coach
Anderlecht winger Frank Acheampong has admitted his disappointment over missing out of the Ghana squad for the 2014 World Cup but insists he holds no grudges over his snub.
The 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup Ghana winger was hoping to ride on his performance for Anderlecht in the Pro League while his form in Turkey with the Black Satellites come as an added advantage.
But Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah overlooked the former King Faisal winger for his 26-man provisional squad and also did not include him in his 4-man stand-by list.
Acheampong admits he was snub because he was not active at some point in the season.
“It’s disappointing because playing in a World Cup is the dream of every player, but the coach decided to do without me and I bow to his decision,” he told Anderlecht’s official website.
“I understand his choice because I have not played a full season.”
The winger has scored three times in 23 appearances for Anderlecht this season.
