Ghana deny player revolt

Maceio - Ghana team officials say reports of a "player revolt" against coach Kwesi Appiah following the 2-1 loss to the United States at the World Cup aren't true.

The Ghana Football Association says a radio station misinterpreted the reason a news conference at the team base in Maceio was postponed on Tuesday.

Ghana's Joy FM reported players — in particular Germany-based forward Kevin-Prince Boateng — were unhappy with Appiah's tactics. Boateng and AC Milan's Michael Essien started on the bench for the Group G game.

The GFA says Wednesday that reports of a revolt are "absolutely false" and the news conference was put back from the morning to the afternoon because the team only arrived back from Natal at 3 a.m. local time.
