It has been revealed by Former Ghana midfielder Nii Odartey Lamptey that ex-goal keeper of the Ghana Blackstars, Adam Kwarasey has greatly regretted playing for Ghana instead of Norway which is his country of birth.
Odartey Lamptey explained that Kwarasey’s regret is due to the difficult time he went through while representing Ghana at the international level.
The 32-year-old made 24 appearances for the Black Stars including a game at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
“I know where Kwarasey came from and all that. If Kwarasey decides to open his mouth and tell you what he went through. He regrets playing for Ghana,” Lamptey told Ahomka FM.
Odartey’s comments are coming at the back of debates on multiple platforms on why talented players of Ghanaian descent are refusing to play for the country.
The Ghana FA has been working behind the scenes to convince English born-Ghanaian right back Tariq Lamptey to choose Ghana ahead of the Three Lions.
But according to Odartey Lamptey, it will be very difficult to convince the player due to what they read on Social Media.
” These Children monitor social media a lot so you can’t tell me he’ll let go the benefit he will enjoy from England and play for Ghana.
“I wish it will happen but I’m telling you point blank it will be very difficult for a player nurtured outside to play for Ghana,” he said.
