EXCLUSIVE: Kwarasey launches attack on Black Stars coaches for his exclusion from Ghana's AFCON squad

Published on: 21 August 2014
Adam Kwarasey says he has been wrongly excluded from the Black Stars squad

Norway-based goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has launched a scathing attack on the Black Stars technical team for his exclusion from Ghana's squad for next month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers can reveal.

The Stromsgodset captain says the decision to call inactive goalkeepers for the matches against Uganda and Togo ahead of him shows that his criticism of the Black Stars coaches after the World Cup was right.

The Norway-born shot stopper looks to have paid the price for his attacks on the technical team that he was dropped from the Black Stars starting line-up at the World Cup for non-footballing reasons.

After the World Cup, Kwarasey said he would not play for the Black Stars until goalkeepers trainer Nassam Yakubu is replaced but the shot-stoppers' coach has kept him position since the tournament in Brazil.

Kwarasey excluded from coach Kwesi Appiah's 24-man squad in his first squad since the World Cup on Wednesday and it includes goalkeepers Fatau Dauda, Stephen Adams and Razak Braimah for the two matches in Kumasi and Lome.

With Dauda yet to acquire his work permit to play for his new South African club Chippa and Adams still enjoying the Ghanaian league's off-season, Brimah remains the only active goalkeeper among the three selected.

Kwarasey, who is active as the Norwegian league is already underway, says the decision to leave him out of the squad shows that his criticism of the coaches is justified.

"No one forced me to say what I said after the World Cup. I said what I felt about what I experienced during the World Cup," Kwarasey told the Norwegian press on Thursday. 

"The fact that I have been excluded from the squad, only reinforces what I said."

Kwarasey is among several players who played at the World Cup but were excluded for the matches against Togo and Uganda as they fight to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Do you think Kwarasey is right? Do you think he can work with the coaches when he questioned their competence? Make your views known in the box below:

I know many of the players are facing problems in the team but are afraid to come out. He who comes out becomes an enemy, why? If what im saying is not true then he should be called back to the team. He is far better than all the keepers been called. Adam keep telling the truth for your time will surely come. big up to you.

Anyone who disagreed with me on this, is a LIAR!! Kwarasey has been very poor for Ghana and that's the absolute TRUTH! He has conceded very POOR GOALS in Ghana's post and am wondering why people are lying thru their truth!! Constructive criticisms like am doing LL shape and make him better whiles these vain GLORIFICATION wldnt do his career any good!! Football is all about competition and judging from his performances for Ghana, he ll STRUGGLE IN ANY BIG TEAM!! I can count the number of times he has conceded very poor and AVOIDABLE GOALS in Ghana posts and that's not a lie!!!

    Don't understand how you bring Fatau Dauda to the fold. He is flat out not good. He stops one shot from Ronaldo and he feels on top of the world, and then he flops tremendously at making one of the simplest and easiest goalkeeper saves in football by dropping the ball right in the 18 yard box to one of the best and if not top goal scorer in the world and might I add the best player in the world only to a wide gaping open net for a simple volley or shot and Ghana is out of the world cup. Dauda is flop at corners and ball crosses from the flanks and how does he get in the fold of our illustrious black stars. I' d rather have Olele back or Adams, or kwarasey instead of him. Backward minded coaches who simply do not know how to manage high class footballers are taking care of this team. what a shame? Please get some one more formidable. Tetteh is better than appiah.

    Oh YES!!! Why shouldn't Kwarassey be right. The head coach, ever since he was appointed as Ghana Black Stars' coach has been playing some 'Kwaku Ananse' game in the selection of players to play in matches. This is the problem with majority of Ghanaian coaches, they just think of their favourite players and not on the basis of competence. If they don't like you, and even you are a good player to the core, forget it, they will not invite you, and I think this is destroying the high standard that previous players of the senior national team have set for this nation for the Black Stars. Why? I don't like the management style of Kwasi Appiah at all, he is destroying the huge gains made by his predecessors and the earlier something is done about it the better. A white man coach will work with a player he deems very good and will play down on trivialities such as, "I don't like this or that player because of ABCD etc. I mean, this is childish and tantamount to destroying the senior national team. Footballing is now a serious business and not what it used to be. Let's be serious!!!

  • JOHN AKPA (nickname) says:
    August 21, 2014 12:10 pm
    I read that Kwarasey said he didn't like the keeper's trainer and that his heart was no longer in the team. Coaches pick players for good and bad reasons all the time. There are many players out there who feel they should be selected for Ghana. If you want to play you must make yourself available. When the coach gets it right you could be playing or when he is replaced you could be given a chance.
  • Fiifi, Berlin says:

    Kwaresay should cool down bcos he made the statement that unless the goalkeepers trainer is changed he would not like to play for the Black Stars. He ruled himself out and for that matter shouldn't complain if he was not called! He should concentrate on his club and use that opportunity to get better and better, his time would surely come!
  • selfmade says:
    August 21, 2014 12:58 pm
    Kwarasey is not good and he is yet to prove his critics wrong with sterling performance for Ghana! He is an average keeper and he sucks big time whenever he is in the posts! I don't even understand how a guy who is yet to click for us as a keeper keeps on making noise! He should let his performace speaks volumes than all this noise! He has the potential to be great but he needs to cool down because he is not doing his BS career any good!! When gfa want to 'MAFIA' u, u ll live to regret it because those guys at the fa are seasonal ROGUES AND CRIMINLAS!!
    August 21, 2014 01:03 pm
    GFA is a mess. When AA was appointed coach of the BS, I was one of his staunchest supporters. I felt this man would do well since he is home grown and would understand how to deal with the players, their emotions etc. Managing people is intricate. However, I have observed with chagrin that Appiah is not cut out for this job. His miscues have left me aghast as to what lies ahead for the country's national team. A typical example is the dropping of Kwarasey after the USA match. He could not explain to this young man why he was dropped, except lower his head in shame. He was also befuddled with his decisions involving when to take out a player or bring in a substitute to turn a match around. Is this a way to run a national team? I am sorry, AA. I think you have bitten more than you can chew. This assignment that has been handed to you is beyond you. I do not care now whether you are home grown, outside grown or sky grown. You need to sit up and admit that it is time to call it quits. Dropping Kwarasey for the Afcon qualifiers because he spoke up shows how infantile your management style is. Or may be that decision to drop him was made by somebody else. If it was, then it is time to let us know, you do not call the shots, but decisions are made by the "back seat drivers." Kwarasey's exclusion has nothing to do with his ability to be within the posts. It is based on an emotional immaturity to accept the fact that the man was right. He has been the recipient of real goal keeper training in Norway as opposed to the kindergarten stuff that Nassam Yakubu was employing in preparing goal keepers for BS encounters. Mediocrity is killing our country oooo!!!
  • anokwale says:
    August 21, 2014 01:03 pm
    Kwarsey has a point but to be truthful, he might have been the best goalie but he just was not a good fit for the team. This happens in businesses all the time. There is someone very talented but they are never quite comfortable in the organization so things do not work out. He could come back, if the make up of the team is more foreign born and the staff is different but for now, it is not going to work. If he was a person who was a bit more of an aggressive personality it could have worked quite well. He cannot change who he is so I can understand if he feels like he is done with the BS. You cannot force square pegs into round holes.
  • Kobby says:
    August 21, 2014 01:06 pm
    We only fail to say the truth. However this is not about he being right or who also speaks for our black stars coaches. But to be fair, i think we have a problem, i was shocked not to see the young man in the team. He made a comment which we know very well seemed to be truth. However we forget so soon that Nasamu was Fatawus' personal coach. If indeed we called players on thier performance than i think he should be in the team. But if we call them because players are liked by coaches then we are in hell. As it stands now, our Black Stars will be made problematic in few years to come because dome say our own black coach was not managing the players. Lets not look at who is from which part of GHANA? Rather it should be who plays in his club

    It s the coach who is not a good fit for the team. Kwarasey is just fine. I agree with your statement about people not being a good fit for some jobs but that is not the case here. When Kwesi Appiah was not the head coach Kwarasey was a good fit. It was until he became the head coach that these issues started. The coach must go for peace to resurrect.

    Kwarasey was dropped after the yanks game because though he didn't make any noticeable mistakes, his demeanor sometimes is uninspiring! Watch the replay of the said game again and u ll see that his clearances was awful! He cleared balls with no purpose and sometimes to dangerous areas! He was all nerves thru out the whole match! He is very UNINSPIRING IN THE POSTS! Again I don't even understand why people are speaking against AA and not kwarasey! This is a guy who hasnt won anything in his footballing career for both club and country but is issuing ultimatum to his nations technical crew to part ways with certain members otherwise he wldnt play again!! This is ridiculous to say the least and how is this diff from JORDAN retiring from the bs? He went from been number 1 keeper to be a bench warmer and he rather needs to work harder to prove his critics wrong! He has been very poor for the bs conceding cheap goals and anyone who deny this truth is a liar! If he becomes SERIOUS WITH HIS CAREER ready to improve, WE LL ALL SEE! Ghana has better keepers than kwarasey!

    Fatawu can never do what kwarasey is doing.kwarasey captains his club and he won the best goal keeper award last season.kwarasey won Tippeligaen (norwgian football cup) for his club for the first time since tell me how Fatawu surpasses kwarasey.the coach has no reasonable reason for excluding kwarasey from the squad,it is solely because of what he said and that is the truth.Nassamu is bad,e lacks the technical knowhow as to how to better train the keepers.he always choose fatawu over kwarasey due to the relationship btn him and Fatawu.this is players base on their performance not relation.and to u mr/mrs blogger or whatever,what kwarasey said isn't an attack. “No one forced me to say what I said after the World Cup. I said what I felt about what I experienced during the World Cup,” Kwarasey told the Norwegian press on Thursday. “The fact that I have been excluded from the squad, only reinforces what I said.” I don't see this as an attack.

    Kwesi Appiah erred again, big time. He's picked fights with various players at different times - from the Ayews, Sulley, Essien, KPB and this does not augur well for the team. Kwarasey is better than any keeper we currently have. For those who are not aware his team is the current Norway champions. He has champions league experience. Which of our current goalkeepers can play in any European premier division league? Historically, Europe has produced the best goalkeepers in the world. Instead of building him up, we are trying to tear him up. It is shameful.

U making it seems like u are the only person who watches kwarasey but I know him and I have watched him several times and he is VERY AVERAGE KEEPER!! There are a lot of Ghanaian based keepers who are far better than him and that's a statement of FACT! If u using DAUDA as the gold standard to judge the prowess of kwarasey, then u indeed worship mediocrity!! Dauda is better and more TALENTED as keeper compare to kwarasey! Yes kwarasey has the potential to be good but his performances in bs leaves much to be desired! Again, he can be the best keeper in Norway or his team but there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between playing for CLIB AND NATION! Some players can be phenomenal for their clubs but sucks at their national tram and kwarasey sucks big time for the nation! Anyone who deny this unrefutbale truth, is living in a diff planet!

In fact going into the WC, all serious football pundits including myself knew that, our weakest link is our central defence and the goalkeeping and it manifested clearly for everyone to see! Can't believe people are saying he won the Norwegian cup so he is good! Playing for a middle table team in Norway shouldn't be something extra O for these half baked supporters of kwarasey to be proud of!! He been the captain of a Norwegian club doesn't make no difference because there are alof of Ghanaians who has captain title winning clubs before in Europe!! He needs to back up because his performances for the national tram sucks and that's the ABSOLUTE TRUTH! I have nothing personal against him but he is turning out to be an AVERAGE KEEPER! PERIOD!

    64 monmouth road this is totaly disgrace to ghana technical team and the coach as well when at all will african change our mentality, if things doesn`t go well so there shoudn`t be complain that is why most people dont want local coaches to handle the national team now we all see they are destroying everything,two foreing coaches took ghana to second stage of the previous worldcups whiile even the team was not solid like the current team, because now what i have observe is that if you are a prayer you have no right to complain which is not good what was the reason for kevin boateng sack from camp in brazil they shoud`ve wait and sansion him minorly, black man is not totaly capable to handle his own affairs,the descipline procedure they are implementing in the blacks star now will gradually destroy the team completly the boys are not feeding bootle boys or like your kids in home even how much could you control your child likewise a grown up boys they should know how to handle every individual irrespective of their character,.some european born children are very controversial whatever they see they question about that,so as a coach you need to know all this things am not say there shoudn`t be descipline but they way they do it its seems soo strange, the team is not a church or religious association whereby you set immense measure or condition that can cause the whole team downfall.2013 africa cup they stop dede ayew and jordan because of descipline and we flopped to burkina faso,the same worldcup sacking prayers from camp and lost misserably to portugal this are all things people should take it to they did not call kwarassary because he said the truth,what is that because the keeper trainer could be good but sometimes not to all men that you will be praise.the boy was dropped from the starting line in brazil so as a person if this happing to you what would you say definatly he will say something that is part of life but its should`nt be a war. the trainer shoud`ve learn from kwarasy comment and admit that he is not perfect.and correct his mistakes instead of dropping him,

That's double standard man!! That's what I mean!! Again, with the exceptio of his debut match for Ghana against Brazil, kwarasey hno not been himself again and his performances for Ghana leaves much to be desired and thats a statement of fact!! Listem man, there is vast difference between doing great for your club and performing for your national team! If u guys are saying that dauda is WAC, then why compare a WAC dauda to ' awesome kwarasey? If kwarasey is all that good, there is no way dauda ll bench him.and I want u to think about this fact!!!

    One thing I will say is that if Kwarasey was a bit more of an outgoing personality, he would have been starting. His quiet nature made him an easy target. I would say that Appiah and his staff need to do a better job with assessing the personalities of the foreign born players. From a personality point of view, a foreign born goalie needs to have a strong personality to command some respect from the teammates. Someone like KPB should not be on the team unless he is one of the best in the world because he has one of those personalities where he can turn on you when the chips are down. Adomah is more in the mold of the foreign born player who can be the outsider who still fits in. Kwarasey, KPB and Adomah are three totally different personalities and the coaching staff needs to pay attention to that. I am quite interested in seeing what is going to happen with Schulp. If he fits in, he could be a wonderful addition. Let us see what happens.

    Adam Larsen Kwarasey can be Ghana number 1 keeper.

    No Coach in his right senses will choose Fatau ahead of Kwarasey. I've been monitoring the performances of these two Goalkeepers for quiet sometime and I can say without fear or favour that Kwarasey is far better than Fatau. The only problem is that Kwarasey has not been given a chance to prove himself. Go and watch the friendly match between Ghana and Brazil when Kwarasey was the Goalkeeper and you will bear me witness. It is high time we learn as a nation to tolerate and respect the viewpoint and sentiments of other people whether young or old. This is destroying us. I've been wondering about why none of us has questioned the components of our defence for this friendly. I don't think John Boye deserve to be in the team. Daniel Opare is no longer a Black star material. Both Ainooson and Edusie were suppose to be called. Akwasi Appiah played as a Local player throughout his playing career, I've been wondering about why he keeps on ignoring these talented boys despite all that they have done. I don't think Akwasi Appiah will be a good Coach, he lacks the wisdom to handle the Black star. At Senegal 92, I used to think Abedi Pele was the major cause of the division that the black Star was experiencing but the dissension I've witnessed ever since Appiah took over as a Coach is telling me otherwise. Not all that glitters is gold.

    b4world "these mixed race fools" - You are an uneducated and a racist fool. Crawl back in the cave or hole you came from. You can say Kwarasay or KPB specifically are used to special treatment but don't generalize because obviously you know nothing. If by special treatment you mean the same treatment they and most of the squad receive when playing for their clubs, or do you mean the same treatment they see being provided by other FA's to friends and teammates when serving their country? I am a Ghanaian with interracial children. They live and play football outside of Ghana. If they end up being talented enough to be invited to play for the blackstars I would certainly encourage them to play for Ghana over any other country. Yes, they may not speak Twi as good as someone who has lived in Ghana their entire life, but football is a universal language and I would hope the players and the people would welcome them with open arms. Back to the Kwarasey point - if he was shit he would be playing in some low level league in Ghana not Europe. I don't even think he did that bad in Brazil to lose his spot. But perhaps the coach went with the hot hand after the Germany tie hence staying with Dauda. If Dauda did so well, some team in Europe would have snatched him up but they didn't. He just landed a new job in SA. Stick to the facts not you hateful agenda. I can also understand the fact that with a bad back-line you may prefer a goalie who speaks the local language, so that puts Dauda in the driver seat but he is not better. This silent killer coach will stay silent enough to kill him own career before it gets started, just watch.
