    Seriously is that the right time to be doing that.
    And why sack players when there have been poor management by the gfa officials and coach making wrong tactical decisions.
    Charley be sadoo!

      Dave:

      I get what you are saying but a coach cannot tolerate that. Even from the best player. It is better that the coach disciplined them. It is a key message to players for the future.

    Sulley you should slapped Nyantakyi too for his corrupt practices. AA is just a failure.

  5. Mumbi says:

    Replace him with John Dramani Mahama, he can play well in Muntari’s position.

  6. Owusu says:

    Hmmmmm, Kwesi Nyantakyi’s administration!!! I think the FA prez shd resign with immediate effect as well.

    Is simple, we need baba Abdul Rahman next time make wise decision

  8. Concerned Citizen says:

    The incompetence of the government of John Mahama has filtered down not only in the running of football administration but every facet of Ghanaian society. The corrupt practices of the government copied by the GFA and the indiscipline demonstrated by this government has cost us not only the World Cup but the country. Ghana is a failed state no water no petrol no electricity cedi in free fall they are doomed. For all who danced for It De Be K3k3 I say u reap what u sow.

  14. cry for the nation says:

    Kwasia Appiah may be right boateng and sulley may be wrong even BALLOTALI is always wrong with coaches but cos of his importancy on the field they kept him,why cant u Kwasi Appiah consider cos of Ghanaian…u suspended them at the time we need our stars.hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  15. African Consciousness says:

    Why did Muntari attack the team official? This is what the media must report because Muntari is a reasonable man!

  16. kwartei says:

    I GUESS THERE IS SOMETHING BEHIND ALL THIS MESS

  17. shattawayo says:

    why people blaming akwesi appiah and GFA instead of shameful act of our players muntari and KPB. this players are not different or extraordinary from other black stars players.Did he think giving money to orphanage is blessing than respecting your elders,am hoping that their children will do the same thing to them.

    There is no smoke without fire!!! Sulley might have acted out of patriotism so I entreat all of us to investigate the whole issue to see what is hiding in the thatch. All these abusive languages will not do us good. How many GFA executives supposed to be in Brazil and how many were there???? What are the roles of the excess????

  19. src says:

    Why should that huge amount of cash be allowed to be flown on a chartered flight to Brazil??? Now electronic banking is no more????? Can somebody from Ministry of Youth & Sports explain this???? Once again ,Sulley ‘s conduct was not without fire!!!! I am judging anybody but see all pop what actions to be taken in furtherance of the whole issue. Abusive words will not help, my lovely folks. Thanks.
