Ghana Kicks Muntari, Boateng Off World Cup Squad
The Associate Press is reporting that Ghana has booted stars Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng out of World Cup for disciplinary reasons.
This falls on the heels of a near player mutiny over World Cup bonus payments. Ghana has more than $3 million rolling around in an armored truck as we speak for the players who wanted their money in cash.
The Ghana Football Association released two separate statements:
“Two of the country’s stars had been “suspended … indefinitely from the Black Stars with immediate effect.”
Muntari was reportedly suspended “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, one statement read.
The other statement said Boateng was dropped from the squad because of “vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah” during a training session this week.
“Boateng has since showed no remorse for his actions which has resulted in the decision,” the statement added.
Both players have had their World Cup accreditation withdrawn.
