Ghana World Cup goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey considering quitting Black Stars

Ghana goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey is considering quitting international football after claiming he was unjustifiably benched at the 2014 World Cup.

The Stromsgodset captain has alleged that team selection at the tournament was not based on merit and that other factors decided who started in matches.

Kwarasey was handed a starting role in Ghana’s Group G opener against USA and despite losing 2-1, he impressed.

The 26-year-old has expressed his frustrations and revealed he might consider his Black Stars future.

“There is no point travelling to Ghana if other things than your performance that decides whether you play or not,” Kwarasey told VG Sporten in Norway.

Kwarasey narrates how he was mysteriously axed from the starting line-up to face Germany in their second match.

“It was hopeless. We had the pre-match meeting four or five hours before the game. At that meeting, I was in the team. Then there was a little bit back and forth and suddenly I was out,” he added.

“I asked why? The coach didn’t look me in the eyes. He just looked down and said sorry. Then I understood that it probably wasn’t his choice.”

    This guy should let has think…dauda is a better goalkeeper…period….everyone gets scared when he’s in the post

    • afrikaba1 says:

      Shut up. If Dauda asked you to come and comment here tell him he will never have half the goalkeeping qualities of Kwarasey.

      • afrikaba1 says:

        Instead of thinking about the country they were thinking about getting Dauda a contract in Europe. Thank God he made the mistake and Ronaldo punished him. Akromfuor nkoaa. Only in Ghana a goalkeeper can hire a national team goalkeeping coach as his personal trainer

      stupid tolu,shut up wai,you don’t think when talking,your so called management must be fair.Adam u are right

  2. He-goat says:

    You can as well get stuck in the cold there in Sweden.
    You should be grateful Ghana invited you at all. Your presence has blocked the chances of other equally good goalkeepers.
    GO TO HELL MY FRIEND!!!

      hey nice name dere

    • COCONUTHEAD says:

      I am quite embarrassed by your comments. First of all I think you know little about this gentleman. If you place him in Sweden, that tells us a lot about what you know. First of all, it has not been an honor for any one to play in this current Black Stars with people like Nyantekyi and Appiah at the helm.

      Appiah could not even give Kwarasey a reason for benching him and could not even look him in the eye. And you say he has “blocked the chances of other equally good goalkeepers.” And who are these goalkeepers? Dauda or Adams? And by your own admission the other goalkeepers are “equally good”. So why bench Kwarasey and field someone of the same potential? If the other keepers are BETTER, that would make sense. Kwarasey has demonstrated over the years with his team as a prolific goal tender. However when he travels to Ghana for international assignments, he is second guessed. How can anyone work under such an indecisive and inept leadership of the Black Stars?

      • PITO says:

        My friend don’t bother trying to talk SENSE to Tolu and Hegoat. They are blockheaded bribe payers with their own agenda. They are part of the people paying money to push their own players. Kwarasey don’t worry we patriotic Ghanaians will clean up these SCUM OF GHANA.

        • COCONUTHEAD says:

          PITO, Orlando Pirates have just signed another keeper Philani Zikala. So that tells you how much confidence they have in Dauda. They saw his errant goal keeping in Brazil. This man only stood between the posts three times during the Pirates season and yet this is the man that Appiah preferred over Kwarasey who is the No.1 goalkeeper for Stromsgodset FC in Norway. Go figure. Oh Ghana!!!

    • costy says:

      Your name tells who you are. Am not surprise hearing such a comment from a goat.

    • nonbody says:

      u r very stupid to talk like dis.i fink dats why u r a he-goat.how the best goalkeeper in norway sit on the bench for a benchwarmer like dauda to be playing all in the name of favouritism.ghana will never move forward if we continue to behave like dis.where was dauda when kwarasey was competing with olele for the number slot.masa use to brain ok .sometymes we behave as if we don’t think.

  3. Ken says:

    Ghanaians expect Nantakyi and Akwasi Appiah to step down. There is nothing that would change the ongoing situation. Nantakyi should stop giving out statements as if he is in charge. You have lost your respect among us and this is it.

    You arrogant bastard! Nantakyi.
    For Akwasi Appiah everyone knows he is a dummy. He better step down or we the Black Stars supporters will beat him down in the stadium.

    The same goes to Nantakyi, aboa!

    If persuasion fails, force will be applied.

    • afrikaba1 says:

      Ghana mpanyini agyemi too much, s3bio. Good goalkeeper like Kwarasey you going to let this guy leave just because you want to get a contract for Dauda and pocket his signing fee.

  4. GH says:

    Why do we still maintaian a coach like this,visionless,unauthoritative,and above all tactical bankruptcy.So long as he remains the black stars coach then i think Ghanaians have nothing to gain

  5. Nat says:

    Awww Larson you are free to leave..am soo sorry for.Ghana and back bitting.go and have ur peace in ur club.after all they hail u there ,why come here and be treated like like a decorated monkey.the truth shall set u free.gooo kwarasey gooo

  6. Shady says:

    He “GOAT” Indeed. Does not hw to talk in public. U would have done worse if it was u. Kwarasey pls follow ur heart n ignore all those batibuays.

  7. joelipanto says:

    Kwarasey you can go to hell or abosam dzamu.

  8. K. Frimpong says:

    Only in Ghana this can happen to a player and I knw all idiot AA backers will begin to scream. How come a villager like AA should have the to coach our dear national team. Now it looks as if there is no intelligent person in the country.

  9. kwame CANADA says:

    Kwasi Appiah…..You have treated Kwarrasey with utmost disrespect. Kwarrasey could be the goalie for Real Madrid and yet you would have chosen Dauda over him. No wonder Dauda said, he does not have to play on regular bases to justify his number one selection on the Black Stars because you know his ability….

    MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE YOUR SELECTION IS NOT BASED ON MERIT BUT FAVOURTISM AS YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON IN THIS WORLD WHO WILL CHOOSE Mr. DAUDA OVER KWARASSY

    You have not been fair and as a result, you are loosing the players

  10. keith from germany says:

    Now we have all seen that AA is not in
    charge.
    and all those saying kwarasey can go to hell doesnt kno anything abt soccer.
    u ungrateful ghanaians should ask yourself how will u feel if u were in kwarasey’s shoes?
    Did u guys even read his story?
    four hours before the german he was in the first 11 and all of a sudden he was out without no explanation.
    AA is a coward becuz if u are coach u have to be strong v n bold to tell a player why he is not in a team.
    Ghana has never experienced something like this before.
    Why didnt ghana have these ossues during the previous tournament?
    Nyantakyi is a mafia boss who has turned the gfa and blackstars into a money making machine.
    Kwarasey with 27 yrs u are still young.u could have easily played for norway but u chosed to play for ghana which i respect a lot.
    We blacks are failures
    as long as these morons stays in charge of affairs,nobody wil watch a blackstars match.
    Empty stadiums they will play in.

  11. Abus says:

    Kwarasey, u are right, i support yr decision

  12. jb says:

    How can stupid John Boye and Asamoah Gyan tells you to dropped him and you being a stupid coach you went ahead to do so..it will follow you to your grave

  13. 21guns says:

    ÀA I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR FAILURE, BUT AA YOU HAVE PUSH ME TO THE WALL AND I WILL BORROW SUAREZ’S SHARP TEETH TO BITE YOUR BALLS.

    First of all you failed as a coach,you disgraced me for having a believe in you that you can do the job, you know nothing nothing at all about the coaching job,

    AA you have brought a disgrace and a disaster to the blackstars, you made the world ridicule us, you cause death to one or two Ghanains who believes Ghana can beat Atleast usa, you made Ghana look like a chiken factory, we are the Black Stars of Ghana a fearful team both in Africa and in the world but you made us look like an ordinary TEAM.

    What went wrong at all for usa to beat Ghana? How dare you to let this happen MR AA,

    Mr ÀA you showed how useless your idea of soccer is, every reasonable coach have considered resigning why didn’t you resign? Why can’t you leave the team for good and better coach.

    WHAT PROMPT ME TO TALK IS YOU ALSO CREATED DIVISION IN THE TEAM AND NOW SOME OF OUR BEST ARE CONSIDERING IN QUITTING THE TEAM, YOU HAVE CAUSE A CONFUSION IN THE TEAM.

    ÀA DO YOURSELF GOOD AND RESIGN,OH I SEE THAT NOT A TYPICAL AFRICAN AND GHANAIN THING TO RESIGN.

    Ask yourself if you can handle the blackstars, FOR ME THE TEAM IS BIGGER THAN JAMES AKWASI APPIAH SO HE SHOULD RESIGN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

    This is Tywane Gunes (21guns)

    Don’t get it twisted

  14. 21guns says:

    My regards to Keith from Germany, speed,raskozy,papadinho, papa shango, selfmade, troy stay bless

  15. LeShaq says:

    Dropping him few hours to a very big game like that is demoralizing. Haaba Akwasi Appiah!

  16. Ghanas son says:

    https://www.facebook.com/SackKwasiAppiahNow?ref=br_tf
    Join the group on facebook and lets sack clueless and incompetent Kwasia Appiah. He is destroying our team.
    It makes sense that if you drop a player, you look him in the eye and give intelligent reasons. Useless coach!!

  17. Obourba JA Adofo says:

    As for me, I love AA so much I am so disappointed in him and I can even speak for him again. The first mistake AA made was the appointment of Asamoah Gyan as captain of the team. How was he expecting Asamoah Gyan to lead this team some of who are more senior and famous than he is? Asamoah Gyan himself is known to be indisciplined. Remember when he attacked a supporter in Kumasi. I witnessed one such irresponsible behaviour at the Golden Tulip hotel in Kumasi when he threw his cell phone at a supporter at the reception area. Did Asamoah Gyan not resign from the Black Stars because he claimed Ghanaians were insulting him for missing penalties? Did my friend AA believe Asamoah Gyan could wield any influence on the senior players?

    There is no logical or technical reason why Kwarasey should be benched for Fatau to start. AA, you have really failed and I am disappointed in you.

  18. fake team says:

    JOHN BOYE and dauda communicated better by John boye scoring him.i guess they speak twi in Dubai and france.

  19. benny says:

    I said this wau before the world cup regards clueless AA and the conspiracy against Kwaresey.
    lt started with Yakubu sayinh Kwaresey lacks confidence and some idiots bought that lies .AA never made any comment to agree or defuse the allegation.Even if it true
    as a coach,your job is to encourage your players.
    For those who are saying Kwaresey can go to hell, l feel sorry for you.You may not like Kwaresey but this issue is not about Kwaresey.Tax payers money which could have been usedto build schools is sacrificed for football and for such behaviour of nepotism to go on is sad.
    No wonder Ghana is what it is.Poverty,filth,political tribalism etc.
    AA is a useless persona.They use him as a puppet.

  20. i-man says:

    this tells how foolish ghanians are. When the Ayew brothers were complaining about the useless GFA officials and the technical directors attitude , you guys bounce on them with your hypocrisy insulting them. Instead of football sovereignties to fix the problems by kicking the FA president n his corrupt members and the good for nothing AA. out, you rather begged these guys to come without solving the issue. Now Kwarasey is quitting n believe me many of our quality players will start rejecting to represent ghana. if this things(nyantekyi n akwesi) are still at post, a time will come not quality player will play for Ghana. Because the are evils n will wreck Ghana football beyond imagination

  21. phill says:

    The guy is in Norway not Sweden….shows those insulting him are not even well informed. Were these keepers not around when Kwarasey was invited? He had the chance to play for Norway but opted for Ghana. It’s a shame that our highly respected coach has disappointed me by allowing himself to be controlled. Essien, Muntari, Kevin, Kwarasey and others will soon be out for similar reasons. I agree with him to go and will support any other player who decides to do same. We will know them by their fruits. Useless GFA.

  22. Sterlingz says:

    Kwarasey….I support u 100% .and I know any discerning Ghanaian will support ur actions . Fatau Dauda nd the goakeepers trainer are both corupt. For AA the least said about him the better.he will continue to be a puppet .

  23. ebe says:

    Kwarasey pls do. Fatau should carry the post to his house. AA says he is a doctor in something I don’t know. What is Klinsmans and the other coaches qualification. Disgrace to doctors I guess. I opted for Local coach but…USELESS campaign

  24. David Akwei says:

    To me how Adam was treated by some of his team mate and the coach was unfair.I think these are some of the reasons Baloteli,Welbeck and Depay Memphesis didn’t join the black stars.

  25. pk says:

    Why AA? But Adam don’t quit. Ghana needs you. Please.

  26. PITO says:

    KWARASEY please STAY! AKWASI APPIAH IS SOO FOOLISH!!!! I CALL HIM A CHA-CHA COACH AND YOU ALL DON’T BELIEVE ME. I AM SURPRISED HE WILL CHOOSE TO PLAY DAUDA OVER KWARASEY ON ANY GIVEN DAY BASED ON MERIT OR GOAL KEEPING PROWESS. KWARASEY IS LIKE MANUEL NUERE OF GERMANY. CALM AND COLLECTED IN THE POST. DAUDA AGGRESSIVELY JUMPS AROUND LIKE A GOAT ON HEAT! AND HE STILL CONCEDES GOALS! A.A CHANGE YOUR WAYS! ALL PATRIOTIC CITIZENS MUST CONDEMN A.A’s choice of dauda over KWARASEY FOR BLACKSTARS

  27. Detector says:

    This is totally senseless….wch coach will ever choose a proper bench warmer in an africn team over a regular stater in norway? ….. Kwarasey i respect ur dicision…. Dose calln him goat n sayn he cn go to hell, u fail to reasn…dis is a coach hu said if u dnt get regular football in ur club u wont even make his team nt to tlk of 1st 11….dauda somtmz even bench he dnt get @ his club.

  28. kuukuphilly says:

    U guys should hear him out rather than bashing him,these sort of nonsense is what’s preventing us from winning anything.there was no reason on earth for benching this guy for the rest of the games,this clearly tells u that there’s more than big problem in gfa and something needs to be done urgently.ghana can easily win a world cup if we wipe our ass correctly after taking shit because the almighty god has blessed us with talents which cannot be replaced by none other…kwarasey I side with u 100%

  29. kwame says:

    FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF BENCHING KARASEY THE COACH AND NYANKATYI MUST GO! YOU BENCH AN ACTIVE GOALKEEPER WHO WON BEST GOALKEEPER IN NORWAY AND REPLACE HIM WITH A KEEPER WHO IS SECOND AT HIS CLUB IN SOUTH AFRICA.

    COMMON SENSE!

  30. banger says:

    GUYS WE ALL INSULTIN THE COACH BUT ONE THING WE FORGETIN IS THE COACH IS NOT THE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM IS THE GFA. DO U REALLY THINK THE GFA CAN INTERFEAR WITH A FORIGN COACH.HELL NO THEY WILL RESIGN. AA WANTS TO DO THE RIGHT THING BUT IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS BEING INFLUANCE BY THE IDIOTIC GFA.AND IF HE DOES’NT AGREE U NO HE WILL BE REPLACED. I WILL NOT BE SURPRISE IF DAUDA IS BRIBIN THE FA

  31. spellBOUND says:

    these few quotes from kwaresay is soooooo telling of whats going on in the gfa…ITS A FUCKING JOKE of an administration….if kwaresay wants to quit, more power to him… after they’ve had enough of dauda, they will beg u to come back, and make u captain… kwaresay’s mistreatment defies reason….

    and as for nyantakyi saying that firing AA will not solve the problems, kwasia, who told him so??? even better performing coaches with pedigree have quit after failed compaigns, let alone this tactically bankrupt MUMU coach.

    tweeeeeeeeaaaaaa, ghanians supporters are in for a few miserable few years unless nyantakyi is chased out of his office. greedy corrupt power hungry HE-GOAT!!

    sorry for the rant, but the disappointment of how events unfolded during the last few weeks after all the promise and potential is just unbelievable.

  32. Lingh says:

    Respect Keith from Germany and other football(soccer) here.
    Its really sad when you read such stories. It breaks my heart and I would like to apologize to Kwarasey for the unfair treatment he’s been going through ever since he pledged his allegiance for Ghana. For this guy to come out venting his frustrations means a lot has gone on and he can’t take it anymore. I’ve the opportunity to speak with him before and he’s so humble and respectful. He doesn’t show respect to people bcos they are in his “class” but everyone is worth it. There’s no accountability in the GFA and the technical team. Couple of years ago, Randy Abbey was bold enough to make a statement that ” as long as he remains top official in the FA Baba Amando will never play for the BS, and he was never called again but Ghana needed him at that time.
    To choose Dauda over Kwarasey clearly shows how incompetent AA is. Scandinavian goalkeeper who is the captain of his team(champions) against a bench warmer in south Africa? This is absurd and indeed an insult to the soft spoken guy.
    For Gyan and Boye to suggest to the coach to use Dauda in the post instead of Kwarasey bcos he could not communicate with them in twi, 45mins to the kickoff? Sad! sad!! sad!!!
    Stephen Keshi even got the Nigerians to round of 16 but has resigned afterwards. AA is scared to resigned becos he’s incompetent and no national team will employ his services.
    Gyan and Boye, do you guys speak twi with your team mates and coaches in your various clubs?
    And FA boss please don’t give interviews and press conferences again. That really irritates me.
    My question is, is the GFA accountable to anyone at all?

  33. jb says:

    Kwaresey was faultless for both goals against USA so what was his crime, john who was most useless defender in world cup was kept by AA and told AA t drop Kwaresey bcos he can’t speak Ga and had full support from another useless captain of the world. .I cry for mother Ghana

  34. Capo di Capi says:

    Kwarasey, I support you 100%. As for AA I knew from the very day he was made the coach that he couldn’t do the job. So am not suprise at all at what’s going on in the team with him in charge. You remember he and Abedi issue? “Silent killer” indeed! Those young players who want to play for GH should think twice.

  35. AK says:

    This is long overdue. He has treated shabbily for far too long. I even wondered whether he had relatives in Ghana. Sorry Adam, you chose the right country at the wrong time. Sad!

  36. Tampa- USA says:

    Adam Kwarasey, please do not quit the Black Stars of GHANA team cos you are a “fixed asset” to the Ghana nation. Having said the above, I fell and share your pain and frustrations- the way the coach Appiah and his money-making machines crooks treated you, particularly dropping you off the “starting 11″ in the eleventh hour for a bench warmer, Daudu just based on his perceived notion that “the coach knows my capabilities.” Surprise surprise, he was right and coach Jame Appiah bought it. What a shame. Adam, you are a dependable and a better goalkeeper… you have demonstrated and continue exhibit these capabilities for Norway’ top league club which I really enjoys. I am with you in this- in Ghana, the is discrimination based on tribalism, regionalism, language, skin-color, financial status and deadly corruption plays big and deep in making vital decisions that affects the Ghana nation; that is not right and should not be allowed going forward in future Black Stars call-ups. My advise to citizens of Ghana is, stand up in a civil and peaceful way to fight out and destroy this tribalism in soccer sports and re-install sports decency and pride and bold to our beloved nation, Ghana. My fellow Ghanaian, you have the power to do this- “soccer revolution” to make sure the GFA, Sport Ministry is well combed and cleaned up so that any fragments that still lives around are rid out for good so that our beloved Black Star flies high again. Though I disagreed with coach James Appiah’s decision-making leading to USA-Ghana match defeat, I still think he should not be fired so that he can correct his wrongs. I believe he as a coach has learned some valuable tactical lessons and hope the GFA would give him all the authoritative tools needed- without Government interference to select and call-up potential players both locals, U-20s and Ghanaian foreign-based players who are: committed, love-for-my-country, die-hard patriots. Adam Kwarasey, in my opinion, you have shown all these characters but still was not given the chances to blend and develop with the rest of the Ghanaian society- team for that matter. James Appiah, if you really wanna stamp out your full authority as a respected coach, stay away from player-management-family corruption staffs and be satisfied with what suffering Ghanaian tax payer gives you. Please select a strong and committed team to play for the love of the game and country. This is for the team, Black Stars of GHANA, I know how deadly you can be if you really wanna be…Please pour your whole heart out for Ghana and forget dirty egoism, riches,fame and class warfare and do the honorable thing- bring enviable good name and PRIDE to our beloved GHANA. Discipline, commitment and dedication and anti-corruption attitude is key to our successes in future tournaments. GO GHANA BLACK STARS

      Kevin-Prince Boateng blasts Ghana’s ‘amateurish’ World Cup preparations Kevin-Prince Boateng has blasted the Ghana Football Association, labeling their preparations for the World Cup as “amateurish”.

      Schalke midfielder Boateng was sent home in disgrace from the squad along with team-mate Sulley Muntari after a series of heated rows.

      Boateng verbally insulted coach Kwesi Appiah during a heated team meeting, while Muntari was reported to have physically attacked GFA official Moses Armah.

      The duo were axed from the squad just hours before their crucial match against Portugal, which Ghana lost 2-1 to leave them bottom of Group G.

      Former Portsmouth and Tottenham ace Boateng claims the GFA failed to live up to promises it made to him before arrival in Brazil, and that the tournament itself was a nightmare.

      “I would have never have thought a World Cup preparation could be organized that badly, Everything was amateurish,” Boateng told Bild. “The nightmare started on the first day of preparations and lasted until the final day.

      “The GFA president (Kwesi Nyantakyi) visited me in Milan begging me to play for Ghana again. He gave me his word that we would have better travel, better organization and preparation. He has not kept his word. In the end, I was just still dissatisfied. “It was a nightmare from the first day of the preparation to the end,” Boateng added.

      “We flew to the first training camp from Amsterdam to Miami. However, we traveled in two groups, since there was no space. One group flew through Atlanta, the other New York. We sat for around nine hours at the airport – a total of 19 hours on the road.

      “The flight from Miami to Brazil a week later took 12 hours and we sat and concentrated in economy class. The legs ached. It sounds strange for an average citizen, but for a competitive athlete that is a disgrace.

      “The Ghana FA president sat in business class with his wife and two children. And then in Brazil, we finally had a charter flight but my luggage was lost. Two days without football boots â it was a disaster.”

      Boateng also hit out the standard of acomodation the players were forced to stay in during their time in Brazil revealing he was forced to change rooms in his hotel:

      “I don’t say hotel, it was a dump. I had to change rooms because my room resembled a private swimming pool with the ceiling dripping,” added Boateng. with match fixing criminals.
      GFA Boss Nyantakyi rubbished the undercover report which sought to link him with match fixing saying it is a calculated attempt to cast a slur not only on his image but that of the GFA and the world governing body of football, FIFA

  38. Nii from Mamprobi says:

    GSN edited the original Kwarasey story and omitted this part..Hahahahah yawa site..

    Kwarasey tells the site the incidents that occurred was because the players had been pushed to their limits and did not hold suspended teammates Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng responsible.

    “Things like that happen when it gets to that point. At the end, you get fed up. I understand his reaction after what we experienced.

    I don’t think any other football player in Norway has experienced what happened with us in Brazil. It was a sick experience. Outside the pitch, it happened way too much that a football player shouldn’t have to be a part of. Trouble with the flights, the hotels and internal problems.

    ” I think it was unfair. I don’t think they did anything wrong. They stood up for the rest of the players. They spoke out, they told the truth. The truth was maybe too much for the guys running the FA.”

    SMH…there is nothing else to say, we should all stop wasting our breath, let us just watch the GFA boss and DR AA destroy the Black Stars then It will be rebuilt with through integrity, competence, organizational skills and correct vision.

  39. paa kwesi Richardson says:

    Akwasi Appiah is useless and clueless, GFA must be dissolved totally, a new coach must start with a new GFA !!! I now understand why Jordan didn’t pass that last minute ball to Asamoah Gyan !! Cos there were division in camp !! Remember Akwasi Appiah and Abedi pele times ? Division was too great that players wouldnt pass ball to other team mates on the field of play !!! Kwarasey I support you..Pls come back ONLY when Ghana gets an European coach !!!

  40. Kevin, Muntari stood up for the players - Kwarasey says:

    why its this web site does not report full story? always short to report the full story.. here is the full story from adam..
    you can check Ghana web for full story.

    Black Stars goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey says he is considering taking a break from the national team because performance and form does not decide who plays.

    The Stromgodset goalkeeper was Ghana’s first choice in their opening game at the World Cup but was axed for the next two games and replaced with Fatau Dauda after teammates put pressure for a change.

    “It’s no point travelling to Ghana if it’s other things than how you perform that decides if you play or not. It was hopeless. We had a match meeting four or five hours before the game. At that meeting, I was in the team. Then it was a little bit back and forward. And suddenly I was out. I asked why. The coach didn’t look me in the eyes. He just looked down and said sorry. Then I understood that it probably wasn’t his choice, he told Norwegian news outlet Verdens Gang.

    Kwarasey tells the site the incidents that occurred was because the players had been pushed to their limits and did not hold suspended teammates Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng responsible.

    “Things like that happen when it gets to that point. At the end, you get fed up. I understand his reaction after what we experienced.

    I don’t think any other football player in Norway has experienced what happened with us in Brazil. It was a sick experience. Outside the pitch, it happened way too much that a football player shouldn’t have to be a part of. Trouble with the flights, the hotels and internal problems.

    ” I think it was unfair. I don’t think they did anything wrong. They stood up for the rest of the players. They spoke out, they told the truth. The truth was maybe too much for the guys running the FA.”

    They know hypocritical Ghanaians hate people who stand up to their elders for no reason that’s why they’re without a shame throwing the boys under the bus with false accusation of showing indiscipline behavior.

    No wonder the media were selected out of the media group for the press conference in other to go in their favour and so that no tough question will be asked to leave AA sweating. The hunters will begin and continue to hunt AA and the whole FA till the curtain of truth is finally unveal

    corrupted ghana fa officials your cup is full. This 2014. As you can see from the postings on here, there is real commitment for the positive thing to be done this time around. pride they say precedes a fall. And the way things are heading now i dont see how AA, Nyantakyi and all you kalabule FA criminalists will be able to pull off your usual gangster and emotional tricks to get away from your judgement. Kwarasey read the postings on here and you will find that Ghanaians will protect and show love to all, much more one of our own. The Corrupted FA does not represent the people, soon we will be rid of them. Dont be too hard on yourself. We all know the truth and we can promise you it will be long before you see the back of all the bad minded FA bigmans.

    Kevin-Prince Boateng blasts Ghana’s ‘amateurish’ World Cup preparations Kevin-Prince Boateng has blasted the Ghana Football Association, labeling their preparations for the World Cup as “amateurish”.

    Schalke midfielder Boateng was sent home in disgrace from the squad along with team-mate Sulley Muntari after a series of heated rows.

    Boateng verbally insulted coach Kwesi Appiah during a heated team meeting, while Muntari was reported to have physically attacked GFA official Moses Armah.

    The duo were axed from the squad just hours before their crucial match against Portugal, which Ghana lost 2-1 to leave them bottom of Group G.

    Former Portsmouth and Tottenham ace Boateng claims the GFA failed to live up to promises it made to him before arrival in Brazil, and that the tournament itself was a nightmare.

    “I would have never have thought a World Cup preparation could be organized that badly, Everything was amateurish,” Boateng told Bild. “The nightmare started on the first day of preparations and lasted until the final day.

    “The GFA president (Kwesi Nyantakyi) visited me in Milan begging me to play for Ghana again. He gave me his word that we would have better travel, better organization and preparation. He has not kept his word. In the end, I was just still dissatisfied. “It was a nightmare from the first day of the preparation to the end,” Boateng added.

    “We flew to the first training camp from Amsterdam to Miami. However, we traveled in two groups, since there was no space. One group flew through Atlanta, the other New York. We sat for around nine hours at the airport – a total of 19 hours on the road.

    “The flight from Miami to Brazil a week later took 12 hours and we sat and concentrated in economy class. The legs ached. It sounds strange for an average citizen, but for a competitive athlete that is a disgrace.

    “The Ghana FA president sat in business class with his wife and two children. And then in Brazil, we finally had a charter flight but my luggage was lost. Two days without football boots â it was a disaster.”

    Boateng also hit out the standard of acomodation the players were forced to stay in during their time in Brazil revealing he was forced to change rooms in his hotel:

    “I don’t say hotel, it was a dump. I had to change rooms because my room resembled a private swimming pool with the ceiling dripping,” added Boateng. with match fixing criminals.
    GFA Boss Nyantakyi rubbished the undercover report which sought to link him with match fixing saying it is a calculated attempt to cast a slur not only on his image but that of the GFA and the world governing body of football, FIFA
