Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey may have to cancel his pre-World Cup training with the Black Stars to return to his Norwegian club Stromsgodset for Saturday's tough match against giants Rosenborg, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
Stromsgodset are facing in goalkeeping crisis since the departure of the Ghana goalkeeper and wants to recall him quickly ahead of this weekendâ€™s Norwegian Premier League showdown against Rosenborg.
The 26-year-old was in post for the champions when they hammered Sarpsborg 08 4-1 last Friday but they lost to StabÃ¦k 2-1 during his absence on Tuesday.
Manager Ronny Deila is keen to have the Ghanaian international back in his team ahead of Saturdayâ€™s big game at home to giants Rosenborg.
He claimed the Ghana FA has agreed to release the shot-stopper and could be on the next available flight back to the Marienlyst Stadion.
â€œWe have a hope of getting Adam here to fight against Rosenborg. Â Adam wants to help, Â so we hope he will be here,â€ he told Norwegian TV 2.
â€œTherefore thumbs up to the Ghanaian Association. It's just a matter of getting him here quickly for Saturdayâ€™s top game.
â€œOver time, it is not a good situation when Adam is gone. Itâ€™s a shame we are being punished because we have players at the World Cup.â€
Kwarasey has been preparing with the Black Stars in his native country ahead of the 2014 World Cup but could cancel his pre-World Cup training to help his club side.
He has been in phenomenal shape for the side since he joined in 2007 and captained them to win the title last season.
However, Stromsgodset fear they could lose the title in the absence of the former VÃ¥lerenga glovesman and quickly wants him to abandon his international duty to play in the crucial game against Rosenborg.
It is however unclear if Â Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah will sanction the move to have his top goalkeeper abandon national team training, just two days before they fly out to Holland to intensify preparations.
Stromsgodset trail leaders Molde by five points after only 10 games.
