Ghana goalkeepersâ€™ trainer Nassamu Yakubu is surprised by claims by World Cup gloves man Adam Larsen Kwarasey he is incompetent for the job.
Kwarasey, who was dropped as Ghanaâ€™s first choice goalkeeper at the World Cup, launched a scathing attack on the Medeama SC trainer as lacking the credentials to handle the national team.
But Yakubu has questioned the timing for Kwaraseyâ€™s outburst having worked with him the last two years.
â€œI need not to boast of what I have done and what I can do as a goalkeepers' trainer and for Kwarasey, I always approach him and ask what I can really do to help him give out his best and he always tells me I am doing the right thing,â€ the former Hearts of Oak goalkeeper told Kumasi-based Metro FM.
â€œI am surprised to hear him question my competence, because I have been coaching him for two years now and never has he said anything like that.â€
Kwarasey in a separate interview with a Norwegian newspaper alleged that he was dropped from the Ghanaâ€™s starting line-up to face Germany hours to the match after some players complained he could not communicate with them in Twi.
â€œHow can we decide to drop a player from the starting line-up, after we have made up our mind to start him by listening to complaints from some of his colleagues?
â€œWe were the same people who started him against USA and is he telling us some players influenced our decision to settle on him as a starter.â€
