Muntari reveals: Why Balotelli swerved Ghana
Article Posted on 2015-07-31


Ghana international Sulley Muntari has said he fears European-born footballers of Ghanaian descent will no longer express interest in the Black Stars if the ill treatment meted out to players does not cease.

The 30-year-old Al Ittihad midfielder, the Ayew brothers, current captain Asamoah Gyan and Kevin-Prince Boateng have all retired from the Black Stars in time past due to claims of unfair treatment.

It would be recalled that the Ghana FA failed at their attempts to get both Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck and Liverpool attacker Mario Balotelli to complete a nationality switch.

Muntari insisted lack of proper player management could make Ghana lose more European-born footballers of Ghanaian parentage.

“Things like this we can avoid them, Black Stars can have amazing young talents that can be there now and for the future as well, but if you keep on treating them badly they wouldn’t love to even join the team.

“You will drive them away. Top players like Balotelli and Danny Welbeck could have played for Ghana but why, probably we don’t know how to get them and even if they hear people quitting the national team, they wouldn’t have any interest to join the team,” Muntari said.
