GHALCA chairman Kudjoe Fianoo has asked for the support of ex-Ghanaian players who are into coaching and football administration.
He made mention of some former players who have delivered when given the opportunity, Michael Osei, Opoku Nti, C.K. Akonnor etc adding that more of such persons are needed to help grow domestic football in the country.
According to Fianoo who doubles as Ashanti Gold SC, it’s about a time Ghanaians supported their own former internationals who are into coaching and football administration to succeed in their chosen career after retiring from active football.
Speaking to sportsworldGhana.com in an exclusive interview, the Ashanti Gold SC CEO commended his club’s trainer Charles Kwabena Akonnor saying ”Yes, he [C.K. Akonnor] has done very well. It tells us we should help our former players who are willing to be coaches, those who have the acumen to be administrators we should help them; Opoku Nti won trophies for Kotoko when he was a football administrator, not forgetting Michael Osei.
He added” They tend to understand the team and the game because they have been there before. Looking at ex-players like Arhinful and the rest who have coaching certificates though, we can give them opportunities to try on administration”.
