Ghana to play at 2022 FIFA World Cup

A former player of Ghana’s senior national team, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has urged the Ghana Football Association to sort out the monetary issues of the team before they play their first match at the 2022 World Cup.

Agyemang Badu explained that the Black Stars Management Committee must negotiate bonuses with the Black Stars player before the World Cup in Qatar.

He also noted that both the GFA and government must prepare a budget that caters for all the needs of the team before the commencement of the 2022 World Cup.

“If there are any issues with money for the team, we beg them, they should resolve it with government one month to the tournament. They must solve it to enable the players have a prepared mind,” Agyemang Badu told Adom TV in an interview.

Eight years ago, hell broke loose in Ghana’s camp at the 2014 FIFA World Cup as Black Stars players demanded their appearance fees before their final group match.

Government of Ghana had to send money on a flight to the team in Brazil before their final match against Portugal.

Some senior players who were deemed to have instigated the debacle were placed on the indefinite ban and have not played for the Black Stars since.
