Nana Osei claims he was dropped because Nyantakyi does not recognize him as a member of the FA

The Head of Communications for the Ghana Football Association Ibrahim Sannie Daara has rubbished claims made by one Nana Osei that he is the physical trainer of the Black Starlets.

The Black Starlets left Ghana for Dubai on Wednesday for a training tour ahead of the U17 World Cup in India.

Osei claims he has spent the past three months with the players in Prampram ahead of their journey to the World Cup in India next month but the federation says he has not been appointed let alone be considered for the trip.

"People working with the national team are appointed by the Executive Committee of the GFA and we have not appointed Nana Osei to be part of the technical team,"

"We need to know the background of the people we work with before they are appointed. We have not appointed him and he doesn't have a letter to that effect".

"How can we defend this before the ministry? If he has an arrangement with the coach we are not aware of it." Ghana FA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie on a local radio station in Cape Coast.

Nana Osei also alleged that the GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi called for his exclusion from the team but Sannie denied that and asked the bulky trainer to leave the FA President out of this.
