Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey says it will be unfair for Stromsgodset to bench him due to his refusal to sign contract extension.
The 26-year-old has been reluctant to sign a new deal as his contract runs out in June this year.
The Norwegian champions have been keen to tie him to a long-term deal before he heads out to the World Cup in Brazil but the Ghanaian international is simply refusing to budge.
He feels the global showpiece will afford him the best platform to enable him grab a move to a bigger European club if he excels in the North American country.
There are fears Stromsgodset officials could start benching him if he does not pen a new three-year deal being offered to him.
â€œNo, Iâ€™ve been at the club for seven years, and I have been loyal to them for all those years. It would be unfair if they put me on the bench because my contract runs out, but I do not think that will happen,â€ Kwarasey is quoted byÂ Nettavisen.
â€œI have been in highs and lows with this club over seven years, and I think that will not happen.
â€œThe situation is as it is, and so it is in all the clubs. If one should bench all those whose contracts are ending there are many players who are going to sit on the bench.â€
The shot-stopper has been named in Ghanaâ€™s provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup.
