A day after Ghana paid their players’ World Cup bonuses in cash to avert a strike, the camp appears to be in disarray. Ghana’s Football Association has suspended indefinitely and sent home starters Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Muntari was sent home for an alleged “unprovoked physical attack” on a GFA Executive Committee member.
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.
Boateng is accused of directing “vulgar verbal insults” at coach Kwesi Appiah.
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.
The suspensions will come as welcome news to U.S. fans. A Ghana draw or reasonable loss to Portugal could see the U.S. advance with a loss to Germany.
