- He also dispelled the perception that he has conspired with journalists to attack the FA since he is no more at the FA. According to him, he is capable of speaking for himself and does not need anybody to do that for him.
Former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Mr. Randy Abbey, has discredited the leadership of the Ghana Football Association.
He claims the Football Association has a leadership crisis.
In an interview with Nathaniel Attoh on Joy FM's Sports Link Programme, the former FA spokesperson revealed that during his tenure as the spokesperson there was no leadership crisis.
He noted that there were people who had strong views on issues and would respectfully put those views across forcefully and worked collectively to get things done. However, he could not speak to the situation that led to the current leadership crisis since he is no more at the FA.
He added that the President of the Ghana Football Association, Mr. Kwasi Nyantakyi's, first term was his best term on all fronts because it was during that time that Ghana qualified for the World Cup. That period also saw a boom in sponsorship for the domestic league, as well as the national football team.
On the issue of taking monies to the dressing room, he intimated that in the past players were asked to buy their own airline tickets to be refunded later which created problems. Also players not being paid their bonuses created a level of mistrust. This, he said, necessitated the idea of sending monies to the dressing room to combat the mistrust in the system.
He also dispelled the perception that he has conspired with journalists to attack the FA since he is no more at the FA. According to him, he is capable of speaking for himself and does not need anybody to do that for him.
When asked whether he is harbouring dreams of running for the GFA presidency, he dissented by explaining that he is involved with something he cannot mix with the running for the presidency at this point in time. Also, he thinks there are others who if given the opportunity and responsibility, will do a great job.
