Ghanaian born Nigerien defender - Kofi Dankwae

Ghanaian born Nigerien defender, Kofi Dankwae has said he is proud of his decision to play for Niger.

The robust defender who won the man of the match award for the Niger-Burkina Faso game said he has not regretted playing for the Menas of Niger.

Speaking during a post-match interview after the WAFU nations Cup game between Niger and Burkina Faso, Dankwae said he had come to prove his worth for the Nigeriens at the expense of Ghana.

The Sports Ministry has confirmed that the winning bonus per match for the Black Starlets at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup finals next month remains US$ 1,000.

It will be recalled that the sector ministry slashed the amount from US$ 3,000 last May during the CAF U17 Nations Cup in Gabon.

"We are going to maintain the reviewed bonus structure that the ministry announced when they played in Gabon and we are up to date with the payment of their allowances as a government and we shall ensure that it continues like that," Deputy Sports Minister Pius Enam Hadzide said before the team's departure.

"These are qualification bonuses but we hope that they win all their matches because the government has prepared some surprise packages for them aside the bonus."

Ghana's squad left Accra on Wednesday to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to prepare for the tournament in India which will run from 6-28 October.

Apoplectic Sulley Muntari has vociferously rubbished media reports claiming he has been arrested in Italy for failing to fulfill some financial commitments with his agent and has threatened to sue the newspaper that carried out the erroneous report.

Reports were rife in the Spanish media in the early hours of Tuesday, which went viral in Italy and Ghana that the superstar had been arrested with his vehicle impounded over big money problems with his former agent according to sports.es.

“I am hugely surprised about where the story is coming from. I am taking legal action against the website immediately for defamation,” Muntari told GHANAsoccernet.com from his base in Italy.

The damaging report also claimed the 34-year-old is under investigation for alleged embezzlement after the Italian police seized his high-end vehicle, a Mercedes, valued more than 150,000 Euros, a claim the Ghana international has also denied.

Muntari who is determined to prove beyond every reasonable doubt to clear his name has asked his lawyers to sue the newspaper for damages.

Muntari, who recently walked off the pitch after a suffering a racist slur during a Serie A match for Pescara against Cagliari, appears to be have been in the media spotlight for the wrong reasons in recent times but the tough-talking midfielder suspects it’s a campaign to slur his image.

The Ghanaian made his debut in Europe for Udinese in 2002 and subsequently signed for Inter in 2007 before joining English League one side English side Portsmouth for

He joined AC Milan in 2012 as a free agent before being farmed out to Al Ittihad last year.
