Kwesi Nyantakyi calls for support for Otto Addo
Former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has called on Ghanaians to support the new technical team of the Black Stars as they look to qualify the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Nyantakyi, who supervised Ghana’s qualification to three consecutive World Cup’s in 2006, 2010 and 2014, called for an end to the blame game in the aftermath of the Stars disastrous 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroun.
Speaking at a GTV Spots Plus’ “Saving our Passion” programme on Thursday which featured Presidents of the GFA, said interim Black Stars trainer Otto Addo needs the support to lead the team to a fourth World Cup appearance.
“All that is required of us is to support the GFA so we can qualify to the World Cup, we have only two games and it is not the time to start blaming anybody,” he said.
Talking about the capacities of the appointed coaches for the Stars, Nyantakyi described the appointees as fine brains who must be supported to achieve success.
“Otto Addo I believe has had some experience and with Chris Hughton, as the technical advisor, we just have to support these fine brains so we qualify for the World Cup,” he added.
Nyantakyi was in charge of the GFA from 2005 to 2018 before an Anas Aremeyaw Anas expose found him guilty of ethical breaches.
