Adam Kwarasey assured of place in the Black Stars

Adam Larsen Kwarasey is set for a return to the senior national team of Ghana, the Black Stars.

The Portland Timbers goalkeeper has not been involved with the Black Stars after the shambolic mishaps between the management team and the players at the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

Despite the appointment of a new coach Avram Grant, the goalkeeper refused all calls to make himself available for selection for the senior national team of Ghana and missed the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations tournament under the former Chelsea boss.

Avram Grant is making efforts to bring the goalkeeper back to the Black Stars and watched him play for his Portland Timbers side on Sunday against New York City FC in the United States of America.

The Black Stars coach met the player after the game and GFA spokesperson Ibrahim Sannie Daara confirms Kwarasey discussed his concerns with Grant.

Avram Grant dissolved those fears and assured the player of his place in the senior national team but would have to fight to be the number 1 goalkeeper.

Sannie Daara told Graphic Sports:

“I can confirm to you that Avram Grant met with Kwarasey after watching him play and after their discussion he [Grant] assured Kwarasey of a place in his team but did not guarantee him the No.1 position.”

Adam Larsen Kwarasey kept a clean sheet in the Sunday game Avram Grant watched.
