The 26-year-old says he once contemplated leaving the Ghana camp in Maceio and would still have been pissed off with the mess tat happened in the team’s camp if it wasn’t for the joy it was to come home to meet his newly born son.
The Strømsgodset glovesman in an interview with VG maintained that it was sad experience in Brazil. The calm goalkeeper revealed that it was his big dream to play at the World Cup but everything ended as a total mess, the 26 year old, who was born and raised in Oslo with a mother from Norway and a father from Ghana.
” I don’t think any other football player in Norway have experienced what happened with us in Brazil. It was a sick experience. Outside the pitch it happened way too much that a football player shouldn’t have to be a part of. Trouble with the flights, the hotels and internal problems.
“It all exploded when Sulley Muntari hit an executive committee member of the Ghana FA during a team meeting. Things like that happen when it gets to that point. At the end you get fed up. I understand his reaction after what we experienced”,
“I think it was unfair. I don’t think they did anything wrong. They stood up for the rest of the players. They spoke out, they told the truth. The truth was maybe too much for the guys running the FA”,
After playing the opening match against USA, he was axed from the start line just an hour or two before the second match against Germany.
“It was hopeless. We had a match meeting four or five hours before the game. At that meeting I was in the team. Then it was a little bit back and forward. And suddenly I was out. I asked why. The coach didn’t looked me in the eyes. He just looked down and said sorry. Then I understood that it probably wasn’t his choice”
Now he’s considering a break from playing for Ghana.
“It’s no point travelling to Ghana if it’s other things than how you perform that decides if you play or not”.
