Ghana's No. 1

No Zambia retaliation- Ghana FA boss

Published on: 14 June 2012

Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has promised to protect Zambia players and officials in the return Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Some Black Stars players were physically assaulted by Zambian policemen after the final whistle in the 1-0 defeat at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium last Saturday.

At a post-match conference midfielder Derek Boateng claimed he was punched by a man in uniform.

Jordan Ayew, Ben Acheampong and goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey also had confrontations with the policemen at post.

There are fears Ghana might retaliate when the Chipolopolo visits for the final qualifier in October next year.

But Ghana FA boss says the African champions will be safe when they visit for the return leg.

"Why should we do that; it is not part of us as Ghanaians and football does not thrive on such actions," Nyantakyi said.

"What we will do is that, we will fortify ourselves, our squad and so on and the coach will have to select the best players available to achieve this."
