Ex- Black Stars and Hearts of Oak goalkeeper, Sammy Adjei, says Ghana football will collapse if educational qualifications are introduced into the management and administration of Ghana football.
There have been reports indicating that the an Ad-hoc committee of the Normalisation Committee are proposing that educational qualifications be introduced to persons who will want to contest for top positions at the Ghana Football Association.
According to the reports only persons with Masters can contest for the Ghana Football Association Presidency as well as persons with Degrees will contest for the Executive Committee positions.
According to Sammy Adjei, the introduction of these educational qualifications to Ghana football will collapse the game as there have been some personalities who have succeeded without attaining degrees and masters in education.
“There are some people who have never been to school before but have football wisdom and knowledge. Osei Kuffuor played for Bayern Munich and we all know he passed in the hands of Alhaji Grusah. If they stick to that recommendation Ghana football will collapse”, he told Otec FM.
Founder of King Faisal Football Club, Alhaji Grusah, who has publicly declared to contest for the FA President seat, also added his voice and said, “The Normalisation Committee does not know what they are saying. If that is what the Normalisation Committee want, then they should tell the Professors, Doctors and Lawyers to form teams and let’s see how difficult it is to bring up a football team”.
He added” The Normalisation Committee shouldnt think of proposing anything like that because it wont work, we dont need Professors, Doctors or Lawyers to direct us how to handle our football”.
