Accra - Kevin-Prince Boateng has hit out at the poor organisation of Ghana's World Cup campaign, following his axing from the squad last week.
The Schalke midfielder and national team-mate Sulley Muntari were sent home for insubordination ahead of the Black Stars' final group match against Portugal.
He explained that he believes they were made scapegoats for the whole issue, where performance bonuses were made the main point of discussion by reporters.
"I am very, very disappointed," Boateng told SportBild. "It simply was no good time. It was a nightmare from the first day of preparation until the end.
"I never thought that you could organise a World Cup preparation and a World Cup that badly: hotels, flights - everything in an amateurish way.
"Our flight from Miami to Brazil took 12 hours. We were in Economy Class, packed. The legs hurt. For a pro, that's an insult. Meanwhile, our president sat in Business Class with his wife and his two kids.
"In Brazil the people responsible managed to lose my luggage. I did not have my football boots for days, no tapes, nothing. It was a disaster.
"Prior to the match against the US we slept in a sleazy hotel. This one can never have been recommended by FIFA. The rooms were wet. I had to change my room because it was like a swimming pool. There was water dripping from the ceiling."
He added: "There were two or three players who were happy that me and Sulley Muntari were suspended. I made my point. There wasn't a single player who was happy.
"I have the feeling that we met a hundred times with our whole delegation. We told them that there are many things that have to change.
"I am an easy victim for them because I told them face-to-face that they are liars who do not keep their promises. The president promised that we would travel better, get better accommodation in the future. A better organisation and preparation. He didn't keep his promise. At the end, I was simply dissatisfied.
"(The bonuses were) part of it, pretty normal. That was one of the smallest problems. It all just came together during one month. It was a catastrophe.
"I just ask myself where all the money is going. The FA gets lots of money from sponsors, from FIFA. They certainly do not spend it for hotels, flights, the team and its preparation."
The 27-year-old hinted that he would be open to a return to the national set-up but also acknowledged that it would be difficult.
"They kicked me out. I love the country and the people but it is hard for any sportsman to continue under these circumstances," he said.
