Black Stars coach, Ratomir Dujkovic, has denied comments he purportedly made about Ghanaians in an interview with the German tabloid, Sport Bild, a few days ago.

According to the Bild report, Dujkovic was upset that despite qualifying the nation to the World Cup the government and the media were clamouring for his dismissal after the Black Stars' appalling performance at CAN 2006.

With just fourteen days to the start of the world cup, the interview has drawn a lot of passionate reactions from Ghanaian football fans, with some calling for the immediate dismissal of the Serbian.

But speaking to Joy Sports from Bochum, Dujkovic insisted the Bild had misquoted him.

“Ofcourse, I made this interview but what was put in public wasn't actually what I said.

“Something's are ok, some are not.

“We talked about discipline and I said that in Africa, generally, the players are indisciplined because they have different mentality.

“I never said Black Africans are indisciplined.”

The senior national football team, the Black Stars will play Turkey later today in a warm up match as part of their final preparations for the World Cup in Germany.

The match will be a critical indicator of the team's preparedness for the World Cup.
