Outspoken Coach J.E. Sarpong has challenged the Executive Committee members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) not to use the ongoing stakeholders meeting in Cape Coast as a mere talk show, but come out with pragmatic measures that would address the lapses undermining the meaningful development of Ghana football.
Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko forward, Eric Bekoe, says he is open to a move back into the Ghana Premier League following the expiration of his contract with Egyptian outfit, Kafr Elsheikh SC.Bekoe, who once took Ghana football by storm after winning the top scorer and best player awards with Kotoko in the 2007-2008 season, has welcomed offers from any of the top clubs in the country, provided they are good enough.
Former Dreams FC coach, Charles Kwabla Akonnor, has confirmed his return to the club to assist in their 2017/2018 Premier League campaign.Akonnor was in charge of the Dawu-based club prior to their demotion to Division One and helped them to win seven games and draw once during their campaign in the second tier before his departure to Ashantigold Sporting Club.
Members of the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), led by FA President, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, together with other principal arms of the FA will embark on a three-day summit beginning today at the Ridge Royal Hotel in Cape Coast to deliberate on key decisions for the well-being of the game.
At age 55, he has worked with over 10 local football clubs, including King Faisal, Accra Hearts of Oak, Gamba All Blacks, Medeama Sporting Club, Berekum Chelsea, Wassaman FC, Kpando Heart of Lions, Techiman City and currently with Aduana Stars.
Accra Hearts of Oak defender, Inusah Musah, says the current player exodus which has hit the club will have no significant negative effect on their performance next season, tagging the situation as a regular phenomenon.
The enthusiasm with which the chiefs and people of Dormaa Ahenkro in the Brong Ahafo Region as well as the teeming supporters of Aduana Stars received the club’s second Ghana Premier League title glory will forever go down in the annals of Ghanaian football record books.
Scottish coach Frank Elliot Nuttal joined Accra Hearts of Oak last February at a time when the Phobians were without a substantive trainer since care-taker coach Yaw Preko vacated the club in October last year.
Following his appointment, Coach Nuttal took a few steps back, observed the team under assistant coach Henry Willington before assuming full control. And since he assumed duty, the 50-yaer-old tactician has repositioned the fitness of the players and transformed the squad into a top notch team.
Accra Great Olympics, Tema Youth and Bolga AllStars all returned to Division One football after exiting the Premier League after losing yesterday’s final round of matches which left them as the competition’s bottom three sides.
The trio returned to the football wilderness after just one season in the elite division after Olympics were beaten 1-0 by another relegation-threatened side, Bechem United, at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park at Bechem, while Berekum Chelsea ended Tema Youth’s hopes with a 2-0 win at the Golden City Park.
