Mali Jabir the Team Manager of the Black Stars during the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations in Mali has disclosed that he sacked Samuel Osei Kuffour from the camp of the senior national team for showing no remorse after he flouted camp rules by visiting the nightclub.


Samuel Osei was sent home during the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations for breaking camp rules.

Malik Jabir has revealed Osei Kuffour was a bad influence on his teammates and he mooted for him to be sent home.

"Yes, I sacked him from camp, it's about time our Ghanaians coaches take responsibility for their actions, Malik Jabir told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

"We drew against Sudan in our first match. We the technical team were there around 11:00 pm when the South African coach came and asked us whether we came for a funfair or what?''

"He said we should go to the disco and that some of our players were there. I asked Oti Akenteng and Osam Duodu to go and verify while I stay behind. When the players saw them they took to their heels but Kuffuor never did.

"When he was questioned he said even in Germany they go to the night club. The coaches returned but not with Kuffour. He came around 4:30 am and he was immediately sacked from camp."

Ghana made it out of the group with South Africa tied on 5 points, however, the four-time AFCON winners dream of annexing their 5th trophy was shuttered when Nigeria beat them 1-0 at the quarter-finals
