Disqualified Ghana FA presidential aspirant Wilfred Osei Kwaku, popularly known as Palmer, has said he is currently not thinking about being president of the association however he refused to rule out contesting in future.

Palmer was disqualified from contesting last year elections which Kurt Okraku won after failing the Normalisation Committee's integrity check.

“I am not thinking about it now [being the FA president]. The rank and file came to me previously to tell me that I have the qualities to become the president so if they tell me to stand again, I will do it,” Palmer told Asempa.

“Another thing is, Kurt Okraku is already in the running. If I announce that I want to be FA President, it will put pressure on him.”

He is challenging the NC's decision to disqualify him from the elections at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
