Sulley-MuntariThe statement also added that the incident involving Muntari took place on Tuesday and named Moses Armah as the man assaulted by the 29-year-old midfielder.

    With a stupid foolish retarded demonic Government in office what do you expect. It will be nothing but confusion. As a ghanaian i say Kevin, leave Black stars and do like your brother did and play for Germany.

    All this frustruation is not worth it especially when you have Corrupt government officials stealing almost 50% of players money.

    I give you the benefit of thedoubt that emotions are high with this non payment and if you cussed out the coach so be it (he is too timid for my liking anyway).

    As a ghanaian i know for sure we will loose today. The morale amongst most players is down with the – going on..

    – You John Mahama (WORST PRESIDENT IN GHANAS HISTORY) – – his equally ever so corrupt brother Ibrahim Mahama and – all NDC governmenT and supporters

      Chineke me! So we aren’t the only ones that complain. Lol I understand the frustrations an inept government can cause believe me, but please don’t take it out on football. I’m really rooting for Ghana to win and for Germany to bastardise the US today.

      Ghana Girl,
      Chill. You are very bitter. You are bitter that your tribal party masquerading as a democracy is not ruling Ghana. Is NPP any less tribal than NDC? This is another reason I have low tolerance for your kind. They are 2 faced beyond belief. Always pretending and smiling in your face only to stab you in the back. You’ve used this entertainment platform to drum that you will never support the team and by extension, Ghana as long as your tribe’s people the NPP are not in power. Is that not first class negative tribalism ? And then you turn around and say that other Ghanaian tribes who don’t speak your Twi language are “not really Ghanaian.” You are absolutely right though. We were never Ghanaian. Not in 1802, not in 1902, not in 1945 or 1950. We had our own tribe nations. Its all Nkrumah’s fault merging us as one Ghana. And yet history has painted him a saint! I cannot wait until this fake nation called Ghana disintegrates. I applaud the NDC/NPP tribal banter. Let it continue. It will fan the flames of discontent already widespread and growing and the inevitable will soon happen. It appears you and your tribe are sick of Ghana. There is something called secession. Separation from a nation by choice. Leave. Go and form Akan nation and live there.Where every president will be from your tribe. Its possible you see? But you must take action. DO SOMETHING about it: Secede. Your people would have done us a favor. I wonder if you cowards will ever have the gustro to bring up the issue of secession publicly. You are a bunch of cowards. I have never seen a more faint-hearted people who have no courage. Secede, Akan Girl, Go!

      yes you are definitely an illiterate a fool and an idiot like the rest of tHW NDCS voters because you only vote on one thing only,


      or even worse yet looks or they vote because of personal benefit they are getting from the in government, such as big contracts etc (directly or family members).

      Foolish idiots like you dont vote policies and who best is smart to push the country forward with excellent ideas for the nation.

      Only an illiterate FOOL votes based on TRIBE and not on actual economic policies.

      Such people are scum of the earth. Illiterates born my a bunch of foolish illiterates.

      I Agree with Ghana Girl Mahama is the worst president ghana has ever had. Worst is an understatement

      GhanaGirl. Loose Vs. Lose. Don’t be so quick to term others illiterate. We all know African players don’t play for national pride, so insubordination to a superordinate who is not as rich is not such a big surprise.

    It’s sad that it’s always the established players who cause problems. I bet there are thousands of not so well known Ghanaian players who will do anything to be in that squad. Now two slots have been wasted. KP always seems more interested in his looks and gelled hair. This nonsense can’t be tolerated in the German squad. I’m happy they have an indigenous coach but could he have done this to a Foreign coach or a Stephen Keshi type of coach? They will not brook any disobedience.
