Derek Boateng calls for quick fix to Ghana football problems

Former Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng has urged the authorities to fix football in the country following the disappointing performance of the Black Stars at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Football activities in the country was left in the dark after the premiering of the 'Number 12' video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas in June 2018 which exposed the rot in the country's football.

In the course of restructuring football activities in the country, the Normalization Committee who were put in charge by FIFA have not done the best in restructuring football in the country.

Ghana suffered a painful exit from the ongoing Cup of Nations on Monday night at Ismailia.

Tunisia ended the four times African champions dominance by defeating them 5:4 on penalties to progress to the next phase of the competition.

However, the former Fulham midfielder, speaking on MAX TV called on the people handling football in the country to fix the mess.

"I very sad," he said in anger. "This should not happen to Ghana football because we have done it before," Boateng stated on MAX TV.

"I am not at the FA but people who are managing out football must fix our football for us because it is very sad this is happening to a country like Ghana".
