Report on Black Stars players stranded in Kenya rubbished – Normalization Committee

Black stars clashes with Ethiopia on Sunday

The Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association has denied reports that players and technical members of the Black Stars were left stranded in Kenya due to poor organization.

A statement from the committee, signed by PRO, Dan Kweku on Thursday reads: ”The GFA Normalization Committee’s attention has been drawn to publications by some media outlets alleging that the Black Stars team is stranded in the Kenyan city of Naivasha. The publications further suggest that the players and the technical team have been left to fend for themselves.

RE BLACK STARS STRANDED AT THEIR TRAINING CAMP IN NAIVASHA

The GFA Normalization Committee’s attention has been drawn to publications by some media outlets alleging that the Black Stars team is stranded in the Kenyan city of Naivasha. The publications further suggest that the players and the technical team have been left to fend for themselves.

We wish to state unambiguously that the said publications are a falsification of the bare facts.

FACTS:

First of all, the Black Stars team did not pitch camp in Naivasha and cannot be stranded in a city they have not visited. The technical team and the players that arrived Monday morning in Nairobi were bused from Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi to a 5-star City Lodge Hotel.

Itineraries drawn to get the players to report to camp were done with the approval of each of the players and their respective clubs as well as the technical handlers of the Black Stars. Thus the assertion that flight tickets could not get to the players in time is untenable.

Meanwhile all Nineteen (19) players invited are currently in camp at the team’s base in Nairobi. The Black Stars will depart for Addis Ababa Friday to continue preparations for Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia.
