Kotoko endorse Afriyie for FA top job

Kumasi Asante Kotoko has thrown their weight behind George Afriyie who is vying to become the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The Chief Executive Officer of Kotoko, George Amoako insists the Reds have given their support to Afriyie as they believe he can change the dwindling fortunes of Ghana football.

“We (Kotoko) are backing George Afriyie to become the president of the Ghana Football Association.” Amoako told the Press after Agriyie’s manifesto launch in Sunyani.

“He is one of the best we have in Ghana now and we are giving him all the support to lead our football and bring it to the highest level.”

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) election is scheduled for October 25, 2019.

Meanwhile, Mr Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer, a disqualified Ghana Football Association (GFA) presidential aspirant has said he will appeal the decision by the Normalisation Committee (NC) to disqualify him from contesting in the upcoming FA elections.

The NC said in an earlier statement on Friday that, it arrived at the decision after recommendations from the Vetting Committee.

The former Executive Committee member is said to have breached Article 33 (5) (c) of the GFA regulations which relates to player transfers.

However, the former Black Stars Management Committee Chairman has in a one-page release pleaded with his supporters to remain calm following his disqualification from the race by the FA Vetting Committee, claiming he was confident of being re-instated in the elections race.

Mr Palmer’s disqualification comes two days after he launched his policy document in Accra, promising to raise a staggering $90.3m to fund the Association if given the nod.

His disqualification brings the number of presidential aspirants to six, with the elections fixed for October 25 in Accra.-GNA
