Kissi bemused with injury claims



Richard Kissi Boateng has laughed off claims that he is injured and subsequently cannot make Ghana's team for the pre-tournament shake-ups scheduled for Abu Dhabi.

With days left for the team to leave for the January 6 date, the Berekum Chelsea left-back was hit by an Amidaus player in his team's loss at the Golden City Park.

"I do not know what doctor confirmed that I am injured and I cannot make it to the Nations Cup," a surprised Kissi Boateng told Accra-based Citi FM on Wednesday afternoon.

The 24-year-old went on to explain why the Blues' technical team replaced him with Musa Mohammed in the closing stages of the Ghana Premier League game on Sunday.

"I just had a slight knock when I was playing against Amidaus. I was then pulled out not because I was injured, the way the game was going, because they were afraid I would be hurt."

One of five locally based players in Kwesi Appiah's 26 man team, he is expected to make the grade to South Africa, considering his impressive showings in the last year.
