Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah took the decision to drop goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey for next month's matches despite goalkeepers trainer Nasamu Yakubu naming the Norway-based shot-stopper in a short-list of four.

Kwarasey was named by Nassam but Kwesi Appiah decided to drop him

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah took the decision to drop goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey for next month’s matches despite goalkeepers trainer Nasamu Yakubu naming the Norway-based shot-stopper in a short-list of four.

Nasamu says he included the Stromgodgset goalkeeper in his proposed list of four players  to face Uganda and Togo in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Kumasi and Lome respectively.

But head coach Appiah opted for Chippa United’s Fatau Dauda, Aduana Stars’ Stephen Adams and Spain-based Razak Braimah with the Stromgodset left out of the final three selected.

Kwarasey looks to have paid the price for questioning the competence of Black Stars goalkeepers’ trainer Nassam Yakubu following the World Cup in Brazil.

The 25-year-old said he will not play for the Black Stars until the goalkeepers’ trainer was sacked which seems to have forced coach Appiah to leave him out of the team.

 

Kwarasey lashed out at Nassam in the wake of his axing as the Black Stars first choice shot-stopper at the World Cup but the goalkeeper trainer said he was ready to call him a call-up.

But Appiah stepped in to exclude the Norway-based shot-stopper with Nassam understanding the reason for the exclusion of Kwarasey following the statements he made in Norway after the World Cup.

“I gave out my list, I shortlisted four goalkeepers and he has not been called and so I don’t know,” Naasamu told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

“Oh yes, he was part of the four shortlisted, because when we were going to the World Cup we shortlisted four goalkeepers and he was picked.

“Fine, the utterances he made if it had been you may be the FA, somebody says if the FA doesn’t change me he will not come and the FA hasn’t changed so it means he cannot”, He added.

Kwarasey lost his starting place at the World Cup to goalkeeper Fatau Dauda which seem to have infuriated him.

Do you think Appiah was right to drop Kwarasey? Do you think after Kwarasey’s criticism of the technical team he can still work with them? Make your views known in box below:

    Let see where Ghana football would be in the next two years. hmmmm

  2. koff scoff says:

    Some of us think that Appiah is now taking things personal BUT the country must take precedence over his personal relationships,this is where he is going wrong.How do you change substitute a player because he has criticized you constructively?the goalkeeper’s trainer must up his tactics that’s all,and I believe Nasamu knows what he as a trainer must do.The fact that he(Nasamu) added Kwarassey’s name means that he took the criticism in good faith.Kwasi pls lets all grow, and not take remarks made by people personal.

  3. mawuli says:

    it’s very bias of the technical team to drop the guy cos of his comments,Ghanaians don’t like the truth and that’s why things are going this way.How can you put someone who hasn’t been playing regularly and has no experience in post while the experienced and regular player sit on the bench?Is this not foolishness?and when he said it,they refused to call him up.Even who’s among those Keepers they’ve called is doing better than Kwarasey at the moment?Lets always do the right thing Ghanaians

  4. mourinho says:

    Lets face fact 4 once
    Kwarasey said he doesnt think he can return to de blackstars if de fa doesnt change de goalkeepers trainer due to his outmoded training methods

  5. mourinho says:

    N de trainer is still there so dnt blame de technical team….if u luv kwarasey den blame de fa for still maintaining de trainer in his post

  6. Canadian says:

    It shows the calibre of person AA is.He calls himself a Christian but he is worse than pagan worshippers.He has dug his own grave.

  7. didida says:

    I think the coach should have given him a call to check if Adams really stands his position. AA would have cleared himself that way. This is a bad precedence. Not good enough as leadership quality.
    After the shameful Brazil experience, the coach’s objective should be to lift BS above supporters’ expectations.

    Damage Control. Part II.

    Comedy after comedy. GH.
    Hmmmmmmm

  9. GodSaveGhana says:

    When you get a villager as a coach, this is what happens. Lets not forget that almost 100% of our players are international players. They have exposure and play in top leagues.
    Kwesi Appiah do not have that exposure. He is rather intimidated by the players success and prefers the timid ones who respects him because he is an elder not because he can coach the team.
    Kwesi Appiah should resign now.
    Put Ghana first
