I have no interest in GFA presidency, says Tony Baffoe
Former Ghana international, Anthony Baffoe has insisted that he is not interested in becoming GFA president for now.
The country’s football governing body presidency has become unoccupied since Kwesi Nyantakyi stepped down following allegations of corruption levelled against him.
After premiering of the Anas Aremeyaw Anas ‘Number 12’ exposé, FIFA and CAF appointed a four-member Normalisation Committee to return Ghana football to it normalcy within six months before a new Ghana FA president can be elected through Congress.
However, the 53-year-old who currently works as Deputy General Secretary for CAF to has been admonished consider vying for the GFA top seat in 2019 when the Normalisation Committee completes their mandate.
But the former FC Köln star says he is comfortable with what he was doing now and has no interest in the GFA position now but indicated he would be happy to see a former footballer to assume the position.
“People have been asking me when I will be the next GFA president. I am not interested in becoming the next GFA president for now. I don’t know where Allah will take me in the next two or three years.” he told Happy FM.
“As at now, I am happy working for CAF. That’s not to say that I am turning my back on Ghana but right now, I am not interested in the role.”
“It will be great to see an ex-footballer becoming the GFA president but he must be prepared because the job won’t be easy.”
“We need people like Abedi Pele, Yusif Chibsah and Sammy Kuffour. They know football and they can contribute a lot to our football.”
