Sam George, the member of parliament for Ningo-Prampram, has urged Ghana Football Association (GFA) officials to resign from their positions if they continue to interfere with the Black Stars’ head coach.
George blames the GFA’s behavior and selection procedure, not the coaches, for the Black Stars’ recent dismal performance.
George claimed in an interview with TV3 that the team’s problems were caused by favoritism and not selecting the best players.
He claimed that in order to be chosen, candidates had to donate money or have sponsors and ties in the GFA.
He then urged the GFA officials to quit their jobs and submit an application for the coaching position if they felt qualified rather than directing the choice of the coach.
“The problem with the Black Stars is one of favouritism and not selecting the best players.
“It has become an issue of people having to pay money to even get selected, or relationships and godfathers in the FA deciding the coach’s selection and tactics.
“If you think you know the job, resign from your position at the GFA and apply to be coach of the Black Stars and then do your selection. “But you sit in an administrative capacity and you want a coach to run his selection by you. Who does that in today’s day and age?”
