Aduana fans call on GFA to reconsider the selection of Africa representatives

The Supporters Union of Aduana Stars have expressed their displeasure towards the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on the selection of clubs to represent Ghana in next season's Africa Club Competitions.

The Executive Council of the GFA following their decision to cancel the 2019/20 football season, selected Asante Kotoko and Ashantigold to represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup respectively.

But a statement released by the supporter's body of the "Ogyaa Boys" expressed dissatisfaction over the decision of the GFA.

"We the supporters of Aduana Stars are not happy about the decision taken by the Executive Council of the GFA to choose Kotoko and Ashantigold to represent Ghana," the statement said.

The statement argued that the Normalization Committee competition used as the criterion for the selection is flawed because it was not an official competition but a special competition organized considering the turbulence in Ghana's football following the expose' by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

"So our view is, if the league is canceled, the last recognized league played in Ghana was 2016/17 season of which Aduana Stars won and still remain the defending champion.

"Hence has the right to represent Ghana in Africa club competitions. We want to take this opportunity and call on Executive Council to reconsider their decision as we all want to help bring back the love of our game,'' the statement said.
