Adam Kwarasey has quashed claims made by erstwhile Black Stars forward, Odartey Lamptey that he harbors regrets for choosing to play for Ghana at the expense of Norway.
Kwarasey, who represented Norway at youth level but switched allegiance to play for Ghana in 2011 endured a torrid time with the Black Stars, especially at the 2014 World Cup when he was replaced by Fatau Dauda after the opening Group match defeat to USA.
“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.” Odartey Lamptey told Ahomka FM.
However, the Valerenga goalkeeper has quashed those claims, adding that he was happy and grateful to represent Ghana.
“That is not true at all. I’m really happy and grateful that I have been allowed to represent Ghana. I love wearing that jersey and, for me, that was the only thing I have ever wanted in terms of national team football,” Kwarasey told Citi Sports.
The 32-year-old added that he will gladly accept another call-up to the Black Stars squad.
“If I’m fit, I will always do that. If I play or not doesn’t matter. For me, as long you make a decision that you think is best for the team. And of course, if I’m the one chosen to play, prepare me for the game so I can have the best possible preparations to have a good performance for our team,” he said.
Kwarasey made 27 appearances for Ghana, including at the World Cup in 2014. He conceded 18 goals and kept 7 clean sheets.
