Former Chairman of Ghana Leagues Clubs Association [GHALCA], Alhaji Ali Raji has cautioned Ghana Football Association [GFA] President, Mr Kurt Okraku to be cautious of the implementation of the autonomous league.

The Ghana FA has announced its decision to make the Premier League autonomous.

But Mr Raji believes that the influence of the President will be drastically reduced if the GFA loses control on the league.

“I am surprised about the eagerness of the new GFA President to see the league go autonomous, it will greatly reduce the influence of the President," he told Akoma FM.

”Ghana Football is all about the league and therefore if he loses influence and control on the league, where lies his authority again,” he added.

The GFA Executive Council outlined steps to make the Ghana Premier League autonomous a couple of days ago.

Pursuance to that, Premier League Clubs nominated three eminent persons to serve on the Autonomous Committee tasked with the responsibility of developing the modalities and the road map to make the league autonomous and independent of the Ghana Football Association.

Togbe Afede XIV, Mr John Ansah and Delali Senaye will be joined by two persons selected by the GFA to begin the process.
