Ghana FA denies conspiracy fears over Essien

The Ghana Football Association has denied reports that it suspects Michael Essien's injury is part of a "conspiracy" to keep him out of the African Cup of Nations.

Ghana trio fined by FA

Chelsea midfielder Essien, along with Bologna's Stephen Appiah and on-loan Sunderland defender John Mensah, are all injury doubts for the tournament in Angola, which kicks off on January 10.

Media reports have suggested the players may have invented or exaggerated the injuries so that they can focus on their duties in their respective leagues. However, while the GFA is planning to send doctors to work with the players, executive committee member Randy Abbey insists that it is not to verify the claims.

Abbey told the governing body's official website: "We aware of [the players'] patriotism and have no cause to doubt their injuries. Our medical team will collaborate with their clubs to keep track on their progress.

"The Ghana Football Association does not believe there's any conspiracy on the part of any of the injured players or their clubs to invent an injury. They are professionals who have a sense of credibility.

"It's a difficult time for them and all they need is our support and that of the entire nation. We wish them a speedy recovery. Once they recover, the country stands to benefit from their availability."
