Coach Avram Grant has expressed disappointment about the ruckus between the Ghana Football Association and the Ministry of Youth and Sports ahead of Ghana’s final African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Rwanda on Saturday.
The head of the Ministry, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye ordered the Black Stars Management Committee and the technical handlers to invite only locally-based players for the tie because his outfit cannot fund the tickets and winning bonus for the clash.
According the Minister, his outfit is cash strapped and does not have that quantum of money to spend on the game as it usually do.
But the football governing body defied his orders. As a result, the players funded their own trip to Ghana to honour the game at the Accra Sports Stadium.
And after a stormy preparations, the former Chelsea Boss says he is not enthused about the happenings and that he will not allow for what happened during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil to happen again.
He congratulated the players for showing patriotism by purchasing their own tickets for the game.
‘’Don’t wait for the last moment, we can ever meet in one month before, this is the problem, let’s solve it,’’ he told the Media.
‘’If we wait until the last moment, what happened at the World Cup in Brazil will come again.
‘’I’m warning, I will let it not happen but it will come again if we want it.
‘’But it doesn’t matter who wrong or right at the moment. The players will give their best on the pitch through what you have seen throughout this week. This is unbelievable that the players had to pay for their tickets. I am not happy but I happy for them. ‘’
Ghana ha already qualified for next year’s AFCON tournament to be held in Gabon.
