“I felt betrayed and felt disappointed. I don’t have a problem with him (coach). I won’t lie to you, I felt extremely hurt,” he told Asempa FM

“I am only human. Nobody can tell me he will be happy over such a decision. If you put yourself in my shoes, you will understand.

“I felt hurt as a human being. I am not the first person to be stripped of the armband. But mostly it happens when one has been embroiled in a scandal. Take the John Terry example.

“Honestly I was hurt. I felt pain in my heart. I will say the coach did not do well. He took his decision but how he went about it was wrong, to be honest.

“I was talked to by the president of Ghana and other senior statesmen to see the larger picture and life. And I took everything in my stride.

“I have no problem with the coach. We are very cool and we look forward to the future.”
