Black Stars players, officials sign Code to avoid Brazil debacle

Black Stars players, the Technical Team, Management and other members of the Ghanaian delegation in Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup have signed a Code of Conduct ahead of the competition

A dispute over players’ appearance fees and indiscipline blighted Ghana’s performance in 2014 world Cup held in Brazil.

The Code of Conduct signed by the delegation on arrival at the team’s training camp in Abu Dhabi is expected to prevent what happened in 2014.

The team is expected to be ethical, respectful, honest, display a very high level of Integrity and uphold the good name of the Black Stars, Ghana Football Association (GFA) and Ghana.

The Code of Conduct outlines the norms, rules, duties and responsibilities or proper practices of an individual in the team as well as the teams’ collective behaviour.

The GFA expects the players and all other members of the national team to abide by these principles during their stay in the national team especially while in Doha, Qatar for the FIFA World Cup which kicked off yesterday.

The Black Stars will play Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Group H.

In 2014, Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng were expelled from Ghana’s World Cup squad for alleged indiscipline.

The news came just hours before Ghana was eliminated from the tournament.

Boateng was said to have used “vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah” and said Muntari was guilty of an “unprovoked physical attack on Moses Armah Parker, a member of the team management.

Boateng was said to have shown “no remorse for his actions”, which took place during the team’s training session in Maceio.

A commission set up to investigate the scandal made far-reaching recommendations  aimed at preventing a repeat of same in the future
