Former president of the Ghana Football Association who ruled from December 30, 2005, until June 7, 2018, Kwesi Nyantakyi has shown his concern about the state of football in Ghana.

According to him, the recent performances of the Ghana Black Stars in major tournaments have shown that, in his time in office he made better progress than now.

Speaking on Onua TV, he said, ” Ghana football is not at a desirable level. I came to office in 2005, and in our first AFCON, we suffered a first-round exit.

“But from 2008 till 2017, we always made the semi-finals of the AFCON. We finished in third place in 2008, second in 2010, semi-finals in 2012 and 2015, second in 2015, and semi-finals in 2017.”

In conclusion, he said, “But since 2019, we have always exited after the first round or even in the group stage. So if you drew a graph, you would see a steep slope. So we all need to help to raise the level again.”
