Ghana’s key players based in Italy and Kevin-Prince Boateng have shown their utmost commitment to the national team by chartering a flight to Montenegro for Wednesday’s international friendly.
Sulley Muntari, Michael Essien, Kwadwo Asamoah and Emmanuel Agyemang Badu were joined by Germany-based Boateng to charter the flight from Milan to Podgorica.
Even though the players are not paid match bonuses for friendlies, the five players chartered the flight to ensure their quick arrival and smooth journey to Montenegro.
The Ghana FA is unable to afford chartered flights for players to match venues so it shows that the players paid for the flight to take them directly to Podgorica.
This clearly demonstrates how devoted the players are to their country as some people in the past have questioned the commitment of the players to the Black Stars.
The picture posted on the social media shows Kwadwo Asamoah and Emmanuel Agyemang Badu taking the back seta of the small aircraft with Boateng and Muntari taking the front seat.
On that occasion it looks like Michael Essien was the cameraman which ruled him out of the nice picture the players posted.
They arrived in camp safely and will join their colleagues as they continue full training ahead of Wednesday night’s game.
Ghana continue their preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup on Wednesday with an away friendly against Montenegro with the match being the last before coach Kwesi Appiah names his squad for the World Cup.
For the global showpiece, Ghana – quarter-finalists in 2010 – were put into a particularly tough group alongside Germany, Portugal and the United States.
