Legendary goalkeeper Sammy Adjei has taken a swipe at the Ghana FA claiming he’s been overlooked for national team call-ups due to an unbridled hatred against him.
The veteran shot-stopper is currently unattached after he was released by local giants Hearts of Oak last year.
The 32-year-old was deemed surplus to requirement under dismissed coach David Duncan after an incredible 13-years spell at the club.
The former Ashdod glovesman has never played for the Black Stars since he retired from the national team in 2008 – a suggestion he has strenuously denied.
Adjei is yearning for a national team call-up to revive a career which has taken a nosedive and claims his effort has been frustrated by members of the Ghana FA who have demonstrated massive hatred against his potential return to the team.
He feels he has been neglected and overlooked after they (FA) gave others the opportunity to revive their careers with national team call-ups.
“They don’t like me and that’s why they have persistently refused to call me into the national team,” an angry Adjei told Asempa FM
“The Ghana FA hates me. I don’t know what I have done to them but they hate me. They have helped others so why have they refused to call me.
“As for me I won’t keep quite. I will voice out my frustration. But I’m not perturbed because the future is still bright for me.”
Adjei’s attack could be targeted at the decision to recall veteran Richard Kingson for the 2014 World Cup play-off against Egypt.
