Kwarasey backs Muntari, Kevin Boateng's actions - claims they stood up for players

Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey says Muntari and Boateng stood up to the players


Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has launched a strong defence of Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng after their sacking from the Ghana 2014 World Cup camp for indiscipline but the Norway-born shot-stopper says they stood up for the players.

Muntari was sacked for physically assaulting management member Moses Armah and threatened further violence on the owner of Medeama Sporting Club while Boateng was axed for verbally abusing coach Kwesi Appiah.

But Kwarasey claimed the actions of Muntari and Boateng were understandable, considering how the GFA had acted in Brazil.

"I think it was unfair," the 26-year-old told Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang, when asked about Muntari and Boateng's suspensions.

"I don't think they did anything wrong.

"They stood up for the rest of the players. They spoke out, they told the truth. The truth was maybe too much for the guys running the FA."

Ghana were eliminated from the World Cup after registering just one point from their three matches in Group G.

    Listern Adam Kwarasey...if you stood up for someone does not meant to abuse and assault your leaders!!! that is not a proper way so stand up for someone..If you think you can not play for Ghana again, you go your way do not stair things up and that is not the way Ghanaian's are brought up to..We were brought up to respect our leaders not to beat them or abuse them....when problem comes we got leaders to report the matter to them and they will investigate and solve it...We are not a violent people ok? If anyone things he can take the law into his own hands, we have a law in our country and the law will deal with that type of person

    @Boro go ready the entire interview and u wld kwn kwesi appiah is not incharge of the players and what ever that GFA, Coach and Management members are saying are lies. What Kevin and Sulley said was actually what happened. It a shame that GSN didn't bring the whole interview but just took some parts of it for their own senseless propaganda

    @Kwame Abiam Danso. Which leaders are u talking about,is it the same ones that are causing the problem?if these leaders would respect themselves things like this would not occur and if the law like you said is really working we would not be here discussing this topic...Why hold onto players bonuses for no legitimate reason? Its not that the fund is not available...some people think because they are leaders, elders or executives mean they can do whatever they want.I think we need more sully Muntari n Kpb in every government ministries for this nation to move forward.People who have the guts to stand up and resist any form of government oppression. Dialogue or peaceful approach is not always the answer, sometimes we have to fight for our right. This so called leaders don't act like they care about the whole nation instead they are there for their own selfish goals.Im with the boys/ youth on this one, the action of the leaders gave birth to the reaction of the players because they fail to fulfill their promise. Long live BS!!! Long live Ghana!!!

    @Boro! We know Nyantakyi and Appiah's boys are in action now to block the truth. You will be horrible if such an incident should ever occur to u. Kwarasey did great with his interview and 95% of Ghanaians that are against corruption support this humble man Kwarasey. Is it also true that most ugly people always feel intimidated by handsome guys? Nyantakyi is ugly, Akwasi Appiah is ugly and maybe yourself so why won't guys like u have problems with Kwarasey and Kevin....... I guess you need a plastic surgery.

    Will you shut the hell up there Kwame or whatever you call yourself. Hope u not a relative to any of those corrupt GFA officials trying to side with them. What's wrong with what Sule did to that thief and what Kevin did to that clueless coach. How else did u expect them to express themselves after doing that same old thing for years and nobody listened to them. By the way, those born in the western world receive the best discipline if you don't know and they also know how to stand for themselves without relying on any old corrupt crook like you been doing. Are you jealous because they stood for themselves which is what you can't do. People like you are causing the problems in Ghana by allowing those corrupt old thieves to keep robbing the nation. Go to hell and tell me what that training in Ghana has done to the nation. Shut up and stop sending people back to that archaic life style.

    Kwarasey are you saying this out of fustration of your failure to command the number one spot in Brazil because i heard you in one of the post matches interview saying ' maybe i have to be superman in order to continue being in the BS post' that for me shows your fustration. The FA for me have their own problems but do not think Muntari being physical and KPB abusing the coach with insults was the civil way to adress any issues the players have. And to hear your endorsement in such matters especially coming from somebody brought up in europe i must say i am really disappointed. The problem some of your critics talk about is your inability to communicate well with your defenders and this might explain why you have not had a move to any major leagues and you are already 26 yrs. So instead of wading into such controvercies i guess you should rather concentrate on how to improve your weaknesses to prove your critics wrong.

    Masa sometimes physical action which is gangster is the only way to deal those corrupt, thieves, self centered, and vampires that run the ministry of sports and GFA. Sulley did the right thing. Those guys have no business being in the black stars camp. The Ghana must fire all the of GFA members and their associates included coach AA. AA demonstrated in Brazil that he is not a good manager and coach. We don't care if FIFA bans us. Nigeria government just did that.

    Kwarasey should be the last person to talk, if I were him. Most of the local keepers are far better than you. You are just lucky to be in the team. Kwasia like you.
  • Sammy says:
    July 04, 2014 05:03 pm
    Is Kwarasey saying, he did not see anything wrong. Oh my world. As much as he assaulted a management member,constitute gross misconduct. However l believe the GFA have seen and know what they did wrong, they should admit it talk about it. That is the only way forward. Cause as the famous saying goes there is no smoke without fire.

    @ Tanko, I guess you didn't get what am trying to say!!! All am saying is that I won't believe what ever the FA, and its management say but rather what kevin and sulley said. It was obvious from the press conference the GFA did that all the said were lies. Its sad

    Kwame: I was rather directing my comments to the other Kwame the Abiam Danso guy. The FA has paid certain mouths to go out to media outlets in Ghana and abroad to cast lies on the playing body. Now they creating divisions in the team which is not healthy. For Ghana to gain its recognition, the whole of the FA has to vamoose if even it re hiring the honest ones amongst them, I agree. Kwesi Appiah is a perfect gentleman but because he associated himsel with Nyantakyi in order to hold on to his job is unnecessary. Now even the so called gentleman's hands is soiled and must go along the FA. Until they all vamoose we are not going to stop pounding the in every media out let in the country and abroad. Bunch of criminals calling themselves FA. Apuu!

    @Sean i am not Nyantakyi or AA's man. Those two cannot buy me but i just think the players, the government and the GFA all played a role in contributing into our failure in Brazil. I hate it when people try to hide behind things to protect their interest. I will therefore not allow myself to be waded into this their blame game but tell it as i feel without fear or favour. Nyantakyi may be corrupt and AA too maybe dumb but the players holding the country into ransome for their appearance fees and going ahead to lose the Portugal match mostly after kissing the money for me is also unacceptable. i will also never endorse both the behaviour of Muntari and KPB because their behaviour to me is barbaric way to deal with situation and looks strange to me such character is endorsed by players like Kwarasey. For your information i am not curruptible. WITH YOUR WANTING TO KNOW WHETHER I AM UGLY? MY WIFE TELLS ME I AM NICE MAN and think THAT IS ALL I NEED. In anyway i cannot really understand how the ugliness or the hundsomeness could aid in what is being discussed here but i will leave that for you. I would have wished yhe government dissolves both the GFA and the technical team for Ghana to be banned from FIFA before any investigations but my worry again is trusting the judgement of a government who could airlift 3 million dollars from Ghana to Brazil. So as you can see i am not in favour of anybody but telling it as i feel.

    Well, if language is the problem, then I can understand why Dauda does not keep the post for Pirates. I am not sure how good his English is to control the pirates' back line. So, if Dauda does a better job, why did he concede goals? We just have no issues to discuss. If local keepers are better than this guy, as some of you say, why continue to invite him? Let him stay in his Norway, and I am sure he will be happier that way.
