Strømsgodset goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey remains committed to join the west Africans despite the long wait on FIFA to finalize his nationality switch.
The Norway-based player told KickOffGhana.com he is not concerned about the delays associated with his switch and there is no basis to rumors that he has lost interest.
“I have always said that once I have formally expressed my interest, it is not my job to go chasing the transfer,” the 23-year-old stated. “It is not my job to run after the paper work. I have done my part as a player and I have always known these things take time.”
Kwarasey, who represented the Norway at the junior level, has obtained a Ghanaian passport and has received the blessing of the Norway Football Federation to proceed with his quest. He said the onus lies on him to keep impressing while the Ghanaian football authorities chase his nationality switch.
“My job is to play well on the field and prove to the Ghana officials that I am good enough for the Black Stars and that is what I am going to do but to say chasing the paperwork and the switch is not my job is not the same as saying I am no longer interested in playing for Ghana. I made that decision to opt for Ghana after careful thought and it is one that I am determined to see through,” the Stromsgodset last line of defence added.
Kwarasey is born to a Norwegian mother and a Ghanaian father. He had his best season at club level for Stromsgodset last season playing over 30 games as they won the Norway Cup.
