Former GFA Presidential aspirant, Wilfried Osei Kwaku claims that player selection into the national teams is influenced by officials of the federation.

According to the Bankroller of Division One side Tema Youth, it is an 'open secret' insisting some players are not even fit to be in the national teams.

The outspoken football administrator reveals the technical aspect of the game has been ignored for the individual interests of officials.

“This is an open secret that GFA officials influence the selection of players into the national team. There are some players who come to the national team but are not fit to be in the team,” Palmer told the Daily Graphic.

“Instead of we looking at things from a technical perspective, we tend to look for players very close to us to be part of the team, irrespective of their level or quality of skills they have.

“If you have your doubts, you can talk to the ex-coaches and they will tell you a lot," he added.
