Legon Cities number Fatau Dauda has deflated claims of a dressing room brawl at the 2014 World Cup.

Ghana after performing splendidly at the 2006 and 2010 World cup were tipped to replicate past World Cup performances, but the Black Stars were terrible as they were knocked out in the group stages.

Ghana ended the tournament with 21 players as Kevin Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari were sacked from camp for gross misconduct.

It was also reported that the players held management to ransom due to the nonpayment of their appearance fees, and that contributed to the awful show down.

Legon Cities goalkeeper Fatau Dauda who was by then the first choice goalkeeper has debunk those claims, he insisted that nothing of that sort happened. He in the process blamed Ghanaians for their awful showdown.

“If you ask me that question, the best answer is that everyone [Ghanaians]. Like I said we all caused it because nothing happened among us [Players],” Dauda said on Atinka TV

“I didn’t see any fight among players, maybe it happened and I didn’t see. We never said they should pay us before honouring the final group match [against Portugal]”

“It was a great experience at the FIFA World Cup but we never expect such performance”, he added.

Ghana were knocked out of the World Cup in the group stage after losing their first game to USA, drawing against eventual winners Germany and losing to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.
