Go to school if you want a role in Ghana football – GFA Exco member Oduro Sarfo tells Stephen Appiah
Nana Oduro Sarfo, an Executive Council member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has asked former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah to enroll in school provided he wants to lead the football association or wants a leadership role within the sports field.
Oduro Sarfo’s comment comes at the back of Stephen Appiah’s interview with Sompa FM in Sunyani. In the said interview, Appiah complained about the snub of legends by the current Ghana Football Association. Adding that, football is managed by players with intelligence rather than elaborate language.
“Legends and former players are not getting the chance around football administration. I have learnt something, that football is run by footballers. It is not the grammar or English that you speak.
“It is about insights, that is why when I went to Italy, without speaking Italian I could understand the coach who was speaking Italian”
Oduro Sarfo in response, took a dig at the Ghanaian former professional footballer saying he should go to school if he wants a role or lead the Ghana Football Association.
“Samuel Eto’o is the FA president for Cameroon. He needed to go to school so he can better himself academically
“He joined associations that are affiliated with their FA before making plans to contest”
“If Stephen Appiah wants to play a key role or wants to lead the GFA, he needs to have better academic knowledge and certificates,” he told Onua FM.
Stephen Appiah is the first captain to qualify Ghana to the FIFA World Cup after leading them to the 2006 tournament. He again led the Black Stars to South Africa 2010 tournament.
