GFA President, Kurt Okraku GFA President, Kurt Okraku

President of Tema Youth FC, Wilfred Osei has taken a swipe at the president of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku accusing him of failing to revive football in the country.

Mr Okraku pledged to revive football in the country during his campaign to become a president of the FA.

After seven months in office, Osei Palmer, who was disqualified from the GFA presidential elections believes Mr Okraku is yet to bring a change in our football.

“I must say it has been quite unfortunate but to put it blunt, nothing has changed [Kurt Okraku’s administration]," he told Asempa FM.

"We would have wished for more reforms to take place. In our last congress, it was asked if there are major reforms in place, nothing has changed.

"An administrator, I cannot release his name, said he was tired of running his club. Another club approached a wealthy man for support but that man turned them down immediately.

"Some people are selling their land to play matches. For how long will this continue?”

The Ghana Premier League is currently on hold due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
