The country’s football association president has vehemently denied suggestions that he used his position to take a revenge on the former Black Stars coach
Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku has rejected reports that he initiated the process to part ways with former Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah.
The 60-year-old was relieved from office a couple months ago after a decision was taken by Ghana FA not to extend his contract after it expired.
Although, there were media reports that Appiah was sacked because he failed to hand national team call ups to players who werenmanaged by Proton Sports, formerly owned by Okraku, the latter insists that was never the case.
“It will be most unfortunate because it could sound like a disrespect to all the twelve members on the Executive Council and other stakeholders who were engaged before that singular decision was taken,” Okraku told Sports Check.
“We all know that we woefully didn’t perform at the AFCON, we all know the happenings from the Brazil 2014 World cup, we all know all the things that has happened before.
“So when the council put the motion into vote, it was twelve out of twelve a big no. It was not about the president of the FA not wanting somebody,” he added.
Appiah in talks with Sudan and Libya to take over their national teams, according to reports.
