Ghana Sends Boateng, Muntari Home

MOST COMMENTED

Ghana on Thursday confirmed that Coach Kwesi Appiah has sent home Schalke’s Kevin-Prince Boateng and AC Milan’s Sulley Muntari for disciplinary reasons. The news comes just hours before Ghana faces Portugal in a key Group G match in which the Africans have a chance of qualifying for the round of 16 if Germany beats the USA and they beat the Portuguese.

According to Eurosport, Muntari is alleged to have slapped Ghana management committee member Moses Armah Parker. "The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has suspended Sulley Ali Muntari indefinitely from the Black Stars with immediate effect. The decision was taken in the wake of his unprovoked physical attack on an Executive Committee member of the GFA and a management member of the Black Stars, Mr. Moses Armah on Tuesday 24th June, 2014 during a meeting. "Muntari’s accreditation for the 2014 World Cup has been withdrawn with immediate effect."

Boateng, meanwhile, is alleged to have insulted Appiah during a practice session. "The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has approved coach Kwesi Appiah’s decision to suspend Kevin-Prince Boateng indefinitely from the Black Stars. The decision takes immediate effect. The decision was taken following Boateng’s vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah during the team’s training session in Maceio this week. Boateng has since showed no remorse for his actions which has resulted in the decision. Boateng’s accreditation for the 2014 World Cup has been withdrawn with immediate effect."
