WA All Stars almost made me bankrupt - Kwesi Nyantakyi

After WA All Stars participation in Africa last year, Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi almost went bankrupt, the FIFA council member has revealed.

Nyantakyi claims he almost lost all he had after his side’s involvement in Africa.

WA All Stars played in the CAF Champions League and got eliminated by Libyan giants Al Hilal in the first round.

Bankroller of the Club, Kwesi Nyantakyi who doubles as the vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) was almost left with nothing after funding the team’s trip in Africa.

“Playing in Africa is very difficult, it comes with a huge cost,” he spoke to the media.

“I almost went bankrupt when my team WA All Stars was playing in the CAF Champions League.

“Just one trip alone will cost you thousands of dollars, and so it is important for government and the FA to come to the aid of Clubs in Africa.

“In many countries, the government supports Clubs participating in Africa.”

The Ghana Football Association have already supported Aduana Stars with $30,000 for their participation in Africa
