Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says he is unaware of the turmoil in the DR Congo ahead of their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations clash on Sunday.
The build-up to the Group B in Port Elizabeth has been dominated by the decision by Leopards coach Claude Leroy to quit the side in a row over bonuses.
The Frenchman was persuaded to return following a visit from the country’s FA president.
Players of the side also refused to train for two days before because of the problems over their bonuses which seem to have affected their concentration.
But Ghana coach Appiah says he has not heard of the reports insisting he only wants to concentrate in preparing his side for Sunday’s match.
“This is the first time I am hearing of this report,” Appiah said on Saturday night when asked about the turmoil in the DR Congo camp.
“Whether Le Roy is on the bench or not, I don’t think it would affect the team because he has been working with them for some time.
“They are very good and we do not expect an easy game but, at the same time, we have everything to match them.
“What is more important is that I concentrate fully on my team.”
Ghana will play Mali and Niger in their subsequent matches in Group B.
