Even as the dust is yet to settle on the Ghana Football Associations decision to acquire a Technical Advisor for the Black Stars, member of the three man committee, set up by the Football Association to spear head the acquisition of the technical committee has revealed that similar appointments will also be made for the other national teams.
The Ghana Football Association revealed last week, that they had tasked a three man committee which included GFA vice president Fred Crentsil, Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association, Francis Oti Akenteng and Former Chairman of the Black Stars management committee, Fred Pappoe to obtain the services of a Technical Advisor for the Black Stars.
The decision has sparked debates across the media landscape, given the fact that the Ghana Football Association has in time past, denied media suggestions of attempts to hire a Technical Advisor.
But in what is surely set to cause even more controversy, ex-GFA Vice President, divulged that, the move to acquire a Technical Advisor will be institutionalized.
Speaking on Accra based radio station Joy FM’s super morning show Fred Pappoe said;
“The whole issue of appointing a Technical Advisor is being done with the idea of revamping or beefing up the technical team, but then, as the practice has been we beef up the technical teams when competitions are close and then let them go after.”
“We want to institutionalize these things where in the near future we can have Technical Advisors for the Satellites, the Starlets and the other national teams”.
The committee is expected to submit a report of their work to the executive committee of the Ghana FA within the course of the week.
