Alhaji Karim Grusah, a former management committee member of the Black Stars, attributes the poor performance of the national team to Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kurt Okraku.
Grusah asserts that the team’s decline is a form of divine punishment for Okraku’s alleged dishonesty and neglect within football circles.
“They said they had dissolved the national team, and they didn’t give us letters because they didn’t give us letters when they appointed us,” stated Alhaji Grusah, highlighting what he perceives as unfair treatment.
Continuing his criticism, he emphasized, “He claimed he could do it all by himself; it’s God who is punishing him. Where you least expect to be embarrassed, that’s where you get embarrassed for cheating on people. We are supposed to be one family in football, but you want to do it alone along with your family.”
These remarks follow Ghana’s disappointing performance in the October and November international breaks, with widespread dissatisfaction among Ghanaians, particularly after the defeat to Comoros.
Grusah’s sentiments echo the frustration of many towards the state of Ghana’s national football team under Okraku’s leadership.
