    It is sometimes good for these players who were not born in Ghana to play for such countries because of the way we treat them later, a typical example is Adam Larsen Kwarasey. Just look at what is he is going through at Black star at hands of some selfish officials.

    He's not a Ghanaian bcos he doesn't have Ghana passport. He's a citizen of Holland even though his parents are from Ghana. That's why LVG wants to sign him bcos he knows he'll play for the Dutch national team.
