Kwarasey dropped from Black Stars squad to face Uganda, Togo in AFCON qualifiers

Adam Kwarasey said Black Stars goalkeepers’ coach must be changed

Norway-based goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey  has been axed from the Black Stars squad to face Uganda and Togo in next month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, sources close to the player have told

The Stromsgodset captain has not received a call from Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah informing him of his call-up and with the squad expected to be named on Wednesday it looks like he has been axed.

This means the shot-stopper will not be part of the squad to be unveiled by coach Kwesi Appiah following a Black Stars management committee meeting on Wednesday.

Kwarasey looks to have paid the price for questioning the competence of Black Stars goalkeepers’ trainer Nassam Yakubu following the World Cup in Brazil.

The shot-stopper lashed out at Yakubu in an interview with Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang hinting that he would not be part of the Black Stars set-up if the goalkeepers’ trainer is not changed.

With Yakubu, who is regarded by many as the finest goalkeepers’ trainer in the country, most unlikely to leave the post, Kwarasey will not play in the side unless something dramatic happens.

“It’s no point travelling to Ghana if it’s other things than how you perform that decides if you play or not,” Kwarasey told the Norwegian newspaper after the World Cup in Brazil.

Fatau Dauda was the preferred choice for Yakubu during the World Cup which seemed not to have gone down well with the Stromsgodset captain.

Kwarasey played in the match against the USA before Dauda took over the post in the subsequent matches against Germany and Portugal.

The absence of Kwarasey means other youngsters will be given the chance to impress the Black Stars coach.

    Uganda this is the moment ,good crosses from the wings n shoot on sight.

  3. Dr Who says:

    Kwarasey feels bitter when Dauda is in post which doesnt auger well for team work.As a player,no matter how another player is chosen over you,you dont show bitterness.out of this same bitterness,it cost Sammy Adjei a place in the BS…Its a privilage to be called into the BS,its not a mandate.

      It is human nature to express yourself. Expressing bitterness is not a sin, especially when you are right. It was not bitterness out of jealousy, it was bitterness out of not doing what was right by the technical team. Do you people really understand what you comment about? or you just like to type something because you can? Kwarasey was right in expressing his feelings. He did it the right way. He did not start a fight with anyone. He merely stated a fact. Who looses if they dont call him back? We all expressed bitterness when GFA failed us in Brazil. Does that mean we were wrong to express our disgust at them? If they ask for our support and prayers, so should we able to express ourselves when they dont do things right.

    God is watching you journalists at the dirty way of finding money.You blokes have thrown your morals away and fighting for money.If Appiah is to release his squad on Wednesday,how did you know Kwarasey was dropped?.We are all watching to see if clueless Appiah will invite Fauda,who is still inactive.Is Yakubu the coach or just the keepers trainer?.

      Kwarasey does not feel bitter when Dauda is in the post. He feels bitter when he work so hard to become Ghana’s number one and then dropped 45 minutes before a game because of Gyan and John Boye’s dictating to Akwasi Appiah.

  5. freshericluv says:

    Same was said of Dede n Jordan prior to the nations cup,we all know wat happened.kwasi is not a coach.the whole GFA is corrupt n need a clean up even if Ghana get ban.match fixers

  6. felix says:

    I will support Black stars until this coach and cortupt Goalkeepers trainer are sacked….Is Fatau bettet than Kwarasey? Corrupt GFA.

  7. felix says:

    typing error…*i will not support*

  8. Zambia waatete(KOFTOWN) says:

    God will punish all this corrupt officials,we will not qualify for
    this African cup trust me.

  9. Ghanaman says:

    Kwarasey said he did not want to travel all the way to Ghana to warm the bench. Maybe the coaches decided he would not start and Dauda was preferred so why force him to travel for the bench!!

  10. kaba says:

    the keeper is right because it was too clear for all to know that the guy is not liked by the officials of black stars.too strange actions against him, is too much.

  11. Holy says:

    Tweaaaaaa is dauda better dan Kwarasey?? lets wait n see we ll nt go to Afcon 2015

  12. Sparcles DNA says:

    Dz so called coach Appiah is simply clueless,visionless and bankrupt ….z dada a keeper??….apuuuuuuuuuuu

  13. Nana(RSA) says:

    Nothing is working in Ghana football today due to corruption, autocracy, lack of respect for the young and selfishness.
    If this continues, we should forget about winning anything.

  14. spellBOUND says:

    Honestly, until something unforeseeable happens… i.e: failing to qualify for the nations cup,,, we are stuck with these corrupt pot-bellied GFA members and their clueless coach… God help us…

  15. Ghanas son says:

    God punish Kwasi Appiah for destroying our team. Every choice Kwesi Appiah takes is wrong.
    You give Asamoah Gyan captains arm band because he sings(jama) and that boost morale of the team. That is primitive.
    Akwasi Appiah has had issues with Essien, Muntari, KP Boateng, Dede, Jordan, Kwarasey and more to come. We still call this fool a coach.
    It is obvious that he is intimidated by top quality players.
    Clueless stupid coach destroying Ghana football. God punish you
