Ghana’s ambassador to the Netherlands Dr. Tony Aidoo visited the Black Stars camp to inspire the players in their preparations towards the 2014 World Cup.

The Black Stars have been preparing in the city of Arnhem since Sunday morning having completed a four-day training program in Accra.

Dr. Tony Aidoo who has been in Holland for a month since his appointment witnessed the team’s training session on Monday after which he interacted with the coaches and players.

"It is my pleasure to be here to see you train. My purpose here is to wish you well," he said.

"I have been here for four weeks and when I came, I met the King of Holland himself.

“He told me that they are going to whip you but I promised him that things will be different.

“I wish you luck and I hope that this time we will teach them a lesson."

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah assured the Ghana envoy of his team’s determination to impress once more again at the World Cup in Brazil.

"We appreciate the fact that you have spent your time watching us train. We want to assure you that we will do our best to make Ghana proud," Appiah said.

The Black Stars will continue with their preparations in Arnhem for a few days before moving to Rotterdam for the friendly match against the Netherlands on May 31st.

    Any of the players in the squad could have one reason or the other to excuse themselves from the BS camp. I hear Essien and Muntari are yet to report to camp. Neither Essien nor Muntari will try this attitude on say Mourinho or Seedorf. AA never tolerate this kind of behaviour in your camp if you really mean to do well in this world cup. These duo will never stop pushing their boundary especially Muntari. If Nasri has been dropped from the France squad due to indiscipline why not Essien and Muntari. As you can see these duo do not care whether you are a ' silent killer or loud killer'. They want to tell you that they are untoucheables. Show to us that you are in control or u shd forever hold your peace! Trade mark of black coaches, they always bend the rules.
