Kurt Okraku’s GFA must apologize to Ghanaians after Black Stars failure in Ivory Coast – Kwesi Nyantakyi

Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantakyi has implored the Kurt Okraku-led administration to render an unqualified apology to Ghanaians for Black Stars’ poor performance in Ivory Coast.

The senior national team for the second time exited at the group phase of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

Ghana recorded a defeat against Cape Verde before recording draws against Egypt and Mozambique to finish 3rd with two points in Group B.

Following the team’s poor performance, Chris Hughton, who was the head coach has been sacked by the Ghana Football Association.

Quizzed if the current Football Association should apologize to the country, Mr Nyantakyi, who is a former 1st CAF Vice President said it would be in the interest of the FA to do that.

He revealed that during his tenure, he led the Football Association when they failed to win the 2010 and 2015 AFCON finals.

“Of course. The national team does not belong to the Football Association,” the renowned football administrator said on GTV Sports Plus.

“They are keeping it for the state and remember government gives the FA money to take care of the team so it must be done.

“I have done it over and over when I was there as the Ghana Football Association president so they must apologize and I think Ghanaians are entitled to that.

“We apologized in 2010 and 2015 after we failed to win the AFCON,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced a five committee to search for a new head coach for the Black Stars.
