Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi lauds player discipline in Black Stars
Nyantakyi has lauded player discipline in the Black Stars

Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi says  player discipline has improved tremendously in the Black Stars ahead of the World Cup in Brazil.

The Ghanaians secured a third successive spot at the tournament after beating Egypt in two-legged play-offs last month.

The Black Stars have had their fair share of player indiscipline in the past with Sulley Muntari, Andre and Jordan Ayew having come under line of fire.

But Ghana FA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi says the level of discipline in the team has improved tremendously which he believes will inure to the benefit of the team.

"Now I can confirm to you that there is absolute discipline and there is absolute law and order in the Black Stars team,” Nyantakyi said

“Woe betide you as a player if you decide to take the law into your own hands. And everybody is aware of that. We have a code of conduct which is strictly enforced and that has contributed a great deal in getting the team this far."

    Up Chairman. Your coach has aid somewhere in GSN that the FA do not interfere in his job, that's good enough. But what I would say is that, elsewhere in the world there's minimal interference by the FA in the coach's player call ups. There are some players the coach calls who do not deserve it. I do not want to mention names but you know what I am talking about. The FA can offer strong advice to the coach on some matters of player call ups, tactics, etc. That's not interference.

    Why did he sell the Japan game and threw Ghana under the bus?

    Ooo yes there is decsipline amongst the playing body however some members of the management need to stop poking their noses in the business of the players too. They should learn just as the playing body did to be decsiplined in their utterances and actions. Also the tribalistic elements in the team must weed out in order for the atmosphere to be cleared of their nuisance. Amen!
