GFA Denies Report On Player-Mutiny

The 23 players attending the training, showing no signs of discontent.

“We have seen reports in the Ghanaian media of revolts over bonuses and selection.

“I want to use this opportunity to debunk these reports.

“I even read that some of the senior players have decided to boycott today’s training but I can confirm they are all here training.

“I can match you to the training ground for you to take a head count for yourself to verify whether everyone is at training.

“So let us please put an end to negative reports which are untrue. If it were true, I wouldn’t have any problem but these are not true.”
