Ghana send home Muntari and Boateng

Ghana midfielders Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng have been sent home from the World Cup for disciplinary reasons, BBC Sport has reported.

Kevin Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari in action against Germany

It’s claimed in a statement from the Ghana Football Association that Boateng ‘vulgar verbal insults targeted at Coach Kwesi Appiah’ and Muntari committed an ‘unprovoked physical attack on an executive committee member.’

Ghana today play Portugal in the final round of Group G fixtures and could still qualify for the knockout stage, if there is a winner in the other group game, which pits Germany against the United States. Ghana would also have to better Portugal’s goal difference to stand any chance of going through.

Muntari was banned for the match against Portugal after picking up two yellow cards in the two prior games, and both he and Boateng have been suspended indefinitely following the allegations made by the Ghana FA.

Milan’s Muntari is alleged to have attacked Moses Amah, a member of the country’s management team, while Schalke’s Boateng ‘showed no remorse’ for his incident.

The squad had also been unhappy after a row about bonuses, the discontent quelled by the arrival of £1.8m in bonuses sent on a chartered aeroplane. They had threatened to boycott the game against Portugal.
