Former Executive Committee member of the GFA Kojo Yankah says the Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association wants to destroy the Black Stars with the appointment of the current Black Stars management committee led by Dr K.K Sarpong.

A five-member management committee has been set-up to manage the affairs of the team ahead of the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Egypt in the summer.

Dr. Desmond Kofi Koduah Sarpong would head the five-member management team and would be deputize by Deputy Sports Minister, Perry Okudzeto.

Other members of the five-member committee include, former Ghanaian footballer, Ibrahim Sunday, Mr. Francis Asenso-Boakye and Madam Abena Osei Asare.

The outspoken and controversial Ex-management member of the Black Stars believes the committee set up is to destroy the Black Stars as the appointment of the members are towed on political lines and they have no experience on the job.

“The Normalization committee has destroyed our local football and they want to destroy Black Stars too with this kind of committee” he told Happy FM.

“You can’t be a management member when you don’t know the players. Players have different attitude and character so it’s not everyone who can manage them. How many of these members knows the Black Stars players?”, he questioned the competence of the members on the committee.

He added that: “These people can’t do the job even with Dr KK Sarpong because he alone can’t do the job. These members can’t advice Kwesi Appiah”.

"This is a serious interference from Government. If you have never run football, you can’t do the job. We should stop the concert in this country".
