The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko, Nana Yaw Amponsah has expressed he has no worries about people referring to him as a ‘boy’ when discussions of his age are put into the context.
Mr, Amponsah rose to prominence following his decision to contest the 2019 Ghana Football Association presidential elections, despite being quite young.
His age has raised a bit of question marks with some people describing him as too young to lead the Porcupine Warriors while others have described him as ‘a boy.’
However, the former Chairman of Phar Rangers revealed he is unperturbed by such descriptions from football people as well as others who have little knowledge about the sports, adding that he has been involved in football for over 16 years now.
In an interview with Happy Sports’ Ohene-Bampong Brenya, the Kotoko CEO said: “I often say that the old age of Methuselah has nothing to do with the miracles of Jesus Christ. So, I am not bothered about those who refer to my young age when it comes to discussions”
“Age is not synonymous with experience. Several times people feel the older you are, the much experience you have got but that is not the case.
“At my age, I have been doing football at the highest level for over 16 years but here in Ghana, we don not believe in specialisation.”
Nana Yaw Amponsah was speaking during Friday morning’s edition of Happy Sports.
