Ghanaian striker, David Accam has revealed how his former Black Stars teammate, Sulley Muntari demanded flight tickets for him and other players to travel back to their clubs when they were dropped from the 2014 World Cup squad whiles in camp with the national team
Accam said, “The way we manage our football is not really nice.”
“We had a game with Holland and the next day we were travelling to America so our bags had been packed and someone sent me the list (on phone) that my name is not part and I didn’t even know because as far as I know, I was travelling with the team.”
He added, “All of a sudden, the coach called me that this is what happened, he said, we still believe in you and stuff but this is the team I’m taking but you will still have your chance after the World Cup and I said that’s fine, but I expected it in a formal way not after I saw the list elsewhere.
According to him, it took the intervention of Sulley Muntari to fight for him and his other teammates to get the authorities to request a flight for them or pay their flight tickets
“Sulley told them in Twi to book a flight for me because you said you’re not going with me,” Accam told Citi TV.
He added, “Sulley said don’t worry, book your flight, I will make sure they pay you your money. He went to the secretary and told him, you guys have to pay or if not you have to pay them the money they used to book the flight.
