2014 World Cup: Ghana coach refuses to shut door on SACKED duo Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari

Published on: 26 June 2014
Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says the international careers of Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng are far from over despite being sacked from camp at the 2014 World Cup.

The duo were kicked out from the Brasilia Palace Hotel on Thursday morning; hours before their 2-1 defeat to Portugal in Group G.

Muntari has been handed an indefinite suspension for unprovoked physical attack on an executive committee member.

Boateng, the Schalke 04 ace, was thrown out of dismissed from the camp for using "vulgar verbal insults" towards head coach Kwesi Appiah.

There are suggestions the pair might have played their last international matches but Appiah says they could be called up for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations this year.

"The letter issued to them was suspension, so it depends," he told reporters at a post-match press conference.


"If they perform well they could be invited back to the national team."

    You have realised that you can't win anything with Your non creative midfield.Could you not forgive KPB for the sake of Ghana? KPB could have been better than waste of space Agyeman Badu. Now the damage is done were out.

    Philly... Take it easy bro! Lol!! I don't know why a lot of people are upset and ssurprisd because the writings were on the wall! Prior to this tournament t told Ghanaians to tone down expectations because though this squad is talented, they're very average and the defence is taking us nowhere and that's exactly what has happen! Though Ghana has been kicked out, Ghana has been the BEST AFRICAN COUNTRY IN THIS WC!

    It is abt time Akwasi put his feet down and stop de Mr good man attitude without a definit decision on Sule and KPB. Pesonally l admire Sule: he is a good footballer but when he does wrg we shdnt hide it. GH shd be put 1st. As for dat KPB de least said abt him de better.

    Akwasi Appiah is a useless coach and should be sacked, period! I can't believe he has the guts to still want to continue as the coach. I will be very surprised and it will a terrible decision for Ghanaians to keep him as a coach. He's a gamble that has not paid off and it's time to do it different. Local coach my A***. A time will come when we'll have top quality coaches but it's just not now and Akwasi Appiah shouldn't shut the door any more than he's done to others who will have something better to offer some day. These issues should have been in-house but poor management n stuff, they had to disgrace themselves and every Ghanaian and on top make us football fans suffer for it. It just makes me angry. Idiots.

    It was interesting to observe that not one, but two African teams going out of the this tournament, not because of the players but because of bureaucratic f***ups and somebody else trying to pocket the money for the players. I hear Africans living in Europe snub proclaiming it is the players fault they should feel honoured to be playing for the national team. Personally I disagree this is not an example of players lacking national pride this is a case of officials within the national side not holding up on their agreements - it is not a question of money but of trust. After the Germany game Ghana deserved to go through but on reading they had sent home two of their best players and hearing the coach dismiss them as if it was of no concern I thought he had a screw loose. There is no doubt Kwesi Appiah is a brilliant tactician he proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt but he has failed to instill in his players to play without ego.

    Stop being naive or a die hard fan for nothing.....who told you Ghana is the best African side.....well; thats your opinion even if it stinks.....there is no poinbt trying to console yourself with such statements.....if Ghana is the best african they are supposed to be in the round of 16.....for now...Nigeria and Algeria are the best teams in can you say such when we couldnt even win a single game at the world cup....shame....please think twice before making such blind for me my point still remains.............Senior Prophet TB Joshua advised Ghana to go to the world cup with Richard Kingston that they will succeed but the fetish GFA felt they could rely more on the pronouncement of Kweku see.........I personally know we do not have a was we the fans that was over-hyping these players,out of the whole squad.....I can single out only Dede Ayew as the BS strength because he never lied with his age.....the rest are old men parading themselves as in their late twenties......Kwasia team and coach

    indecisiveness as a leader is what has cost Ghana. Appiah is not a leader of these players and by the way they play as individuals you can see it. He doesn't have the respect or fire to control these players. Corrupt GFA need to look at what is best for Ghana and not their pockets. Local or foreign is not my concern. Tactical discipline, leadership and fire to win is.

    REPORTS AND TRUTH FROM BRAZIL; I think am very much vindicated now.What didn't I say about these folk; 1.Kwesi Appiah 2.Fatau Dauda 3.Ali baba and the 12 thieves at the FA,,(Kwesi Nyantakyi and FA management team including Parker) I have been here in Brazil on my own tickets.I am here as a Ghanaian fan..Hence traveled all the way from Europe to support the blackstars.Unlike the NDC foot soldiers paraded to Brazil by Joseph Yamin and Afriyie Ankrah.. With whatever we had seen in Brazil.Its clearly tells the chaotic situation we find ourselves as Ghanaians..With no proper leaders than self interest seeking hungry thieves.Who are in hurry to pocket the resources of the poor Ghanaian populations for themselves and families. I had confirmed the revolt at the camp on ghanasoccernet two days before it was widely publicized.Yet Asamoah Gyan came to deny it after being sent by his puppet masters to do so.. AGYEMAN BADU & BECCA ; I can confirm to you that Agyeman Badu bedded Becca for real.The last time I heard about this girl was she has been married to her manager Kiki Banson some few years ago.The other time,I heard on peacefmonline radio that an unknown woman had hooted her at the Accra mall while she shopped.That, Becca was wrecking her matrimonial home.With such a history and you send this person to Brazil to be near the camp of the blackstars..Its rather unfortunate to have this happens ..Well,I stand to be corrected if they actually had raised any money for the national team as it was their primary task.But whatever I see in Brazil about these female ambassadors are clearly different.They were just sleeping around with anyone who can offer them money to shoot a video clip here in Brazil.And ask me ask you ,who is Agyeman Badu to bed Becca ? This tells the gross indiscipline in the country and supported by our leaders. This same Agyeman Badu went to gossip to Parker that,sulley muntari and kevin were discussing him. NANA McBROWN & MAXWELL:Enjoying a sort of honeymoon on the tax payers monies..sweet Jesus!! JACKIE APPIAH & AFRIYIE ANKRAH:I can duly confirm that Afriyie Ankrah had something going on between himself and Jackie Appiah .We saw this clearly at the fun park in maceio and other places.some of us thought he had wanted to bring just Jackie to Brazil to service him in bed.But couldn't find any excuse than inviting John Dumelo,Ambulley,etc along as ambassadors.He has left his family there at the hotel and following Jackie.I knew this man personally from Swedru All Blacks days.Such a corrupt person he is,with Mahama appointing him to the sports ministry and closer attachment to the FA,I smelled rat.I knew something was going to happen with embezzlements and thefts.So I wasn't surprised at all and have been expecting this to happen. KWESI NYANTAKYI :This man should do the honor to resign amidst infighting in the camp and match fixing allegations .The African doesn't have any dignity nor self respect left.Its still a disgrace to compare to the white man to the black man.Its a shame to do so in this part of the century.But it should be very honorable for this man to resign to avoid obstructions in investigations on allegations met at him.Well,for the sake of corrupt malpractices,he is still at helm of affairs.where are we heading to as a country.hmm! It clearly seems our osagyefo Dr.Nkrumah died with his patriotic visions.So no one in the country is patriotic anymore.But ask this FA boss that does the oldest FA like the English and German ones pay appearance fees to any member of the non-playing bodies? The answer is absolutely NO. Kwesi Nyantakyi was leading in making player selections for Kwesi Appiah .i know this from camp . KWESI NYANTAKYI & FA SPONSORSHIP MONIES...I am surprised this man claim he used all FIFA's $9 million participation fees on two friendly matches,hotels and air tickets ..what a ridiculous lie!!when Ghana played holland,they were hosted by the Dutchs from accommodation to food.almost everything was paid by them.They paid some monies to the Ghana FA as a result. The Korean game,I wasn't sure .but even if Ghana had paid them to play in Miami.I am sure fans paid for tickets,tv rights were sold,sponsors paid to advertise on boards in the stadium including Hyundai ,the Korean FA official headline sponsors and a couple of others.If the Ghana FA had really organized this match,they rather should be benefiting after paying off the Koreans .so where are the monies ? Besides we had sponsors giving money to them from Ghana as well as corporate bodies. I talked to countryman sonko of asempa fm fame when I met briefly with him in Brazil.i learned from him that monies raised from those corporate bodies were around the region of somewhere 2-3 million dollars.lets say the money was 2.5 million dollars in addition to the 9 million dollars from FIFA .both totals 11.5 million dollars excluding ones given headline sponsors like GNPC,GLO,CENTAURO and GOLDFIELDS. So with all these monies ,why did they have still to depend on our president for monies?? Something is not right mates .. KWESI APPIAH: I never wished any bad luck for him.but like i had said,there's going to be a repeat of AFCON 2013 in Brazil.We as pan Africans like to see an African coach for our national team.But in any day I will choose konadu over Kwesi.konadu can understand and play good tactics.i saw this in the previous CHAN tournament. Kwesi Appiah was being controlled by the management team over fielding favorite players.The architect behind such an act were Kwesi Appiah and Sani Daara .I read our dear coach saying he is not considering a resignation.well,Kwesi I expect you also to do the honorable thing like your name sake the FA president.Kwesi Appiah has had the chance to care take the senior team for 2 years .he knew his first 11 while playing the qualifiers but sad he was lost during friendly games and World Cup matches where it mattered most.I have an Ukrainian mistress in Napoli,Italy.although she works as a magician and could foretell the future by reading cards,I never consulted her over Ghana's chances.common sense should tell us that we will never make it from our group.i had clearly said so from the beginning before they went to holland ..because our preparations were poor neither did we have a competent and honest coach.thats the truth . KP BOATENG ,SULLEY MUNTARI & KWESI APPIAH: well I can confirm to everyone of you here that,these boys were completely not at fault .I read from two media sites said kevin and sulley fought themselves at the team camp.This is never true .Sani Daara because of his stomach is doing a false propaganda work in Brazil as an FA PR.KP never insulted Kwesi Appiah,the man is just a pathetic dramatic liar.he is just a silent liar ..I am here in Brazil ,I was close to the camp and it's no true of this story. I am very sorry that the Ghanaian public is being misled .it was Kwesi Appiah who had attacked Kevin with insults.All because I learned he didn't find it comfortable or pleased with KPB questioning his failed tactics against team USA in the German media .Hence had to use a way to get rid of him..unfortunately ,this is what he could come up to sack KPB contrary to the report heard. ON SULLEY,he was objecting to corrupt and exploitation practices by the management committee on players.No one should believe he went just mad at camp to attack everybody ..already they were tension between himself and Parker .as a result of Agyeman Badu's gossiping to Parker that sulley and KPB were talking about him.hence the misunderstanding leading to the fight later at the meeting. FATAU DAUDA: many Ghanaians finally got their calls to drop him right after yesterday's game.I thought he said could stop Ronaldo,I guess he rather stopped himself at the World Cup.Kwesi Appiah 's arrogance finally paid off..I won't blame Dauda for anything ,he didn't select himself into the post,one coach did that and the person is Kwesi Appiah . NDC FOOT SOLDIERS MADE BLACKSTARS SUPPORTERS: I have already started campaigning for them to return to Ghana.Brazil is a hell of a place to seek greener pastures.i bet they will rather meet drier pastries than greener ones.Those of them intending to remain here do so at their own peril.they shouldn't even attempt hoping to cross those many borders in hope to reach the Mexican border to the USA.they should at least learn some geography before thinking of committing to such a suicidal journey .i learned from their base that some of them were intending to try this journey.HMM!In Nicaragua is one of the worlds dangerous roads on the mountains.there is a lot of fatal accidents and death recorded than anywhere else in the is a steep mountain where many busses fail to climb because of break failure and risk dying .this is one of the main roads to reaching North America from the south .i knew some Ghana people who tried this sort journey from Brazil to Mexico and then USA .many got stuck in panama while others died on the of the people who made it was Rev.Isaac Ofori of Christian IPS in both Accra and Koforidua ..I am keep advising but some are listening whiles others are not..if you have a relation here in Brazil with such an aim..Advise him or her to return home to Ghana ..God's time is the best!
