The Vålerenga guardsman indicated that the misunderstanding between himself and the head coach would make him feel quite uncomfortable should he decide to serve under his command with unresolved issues hanging in the background.

Adam Larsen Kwarasey was not included in Ghana’s final 24-man squad in the upcoming 2018 World Cup Qualifiers giving some level of truth to the speculations.
