Kwarasey backs Muntari, Kevin Boateng's actions - claims they stood up for players
Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has launched a strong defence of Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng after their sacking from the Ghana 2014 World Cup camp for indiscipline but the Norway-born shot-stopper says they stood up for the players.
Muntari was sacked for physically assaulting management member Moses Armah and threatened further violence on the owner of Medeama Sporting Club while Boateng was axed for verbally abusing coach Kwesi Appiah.
But Kwarasey claimed the actions of Muntari and Boateng were understandable, considering how the GFA had acted in Brazil.
“I think it was unfair,” the 26-year-old told Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang, when asked about Muntari and Boateng’s suspensions.
“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.”
Ghana were eliminated from the World Cup after registering just one point from their three matches in Group G.
