Former Ghana midfielder Nii Odartey Lamptey has revealed that goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey has regretted representing the Black Stars at international level over his country of birth Norway.
According to Odartey Lamptey, Kwarasey has painful feelings for the country following his difficult spell with the senior national team.
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.
His comment comes following a debate in the media as to why players of Ghanaian descent refuse to play for Ghana.
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.
“It will never happen because they look at the benefit and consider what they’ll go through in Ghana and no one will choose what we go through. I may be wrong but there is no way we can convince these guys”. He added
