Vice President of the Ghana Football Association, George Afriyie, has quashed reports linking him to the association’s presidency.
Widespread media reports indicate that George Afriyie is yearning to be the Boss of the football governing body though the incumbent FA Presient, Kwesi Nyantakyi has not said that he is stepping down.
Speaking with Kumasi-based Nhyira FM, Afriyie indicated that though he has the ambition to hold the position he has never dreamt of replacing Nyantakyi at the moment as speculated.
According to the Liberty Professionals official, there more other qualified persons who could also head the association.
‘’We have an FA president and the rules give him the opportunity to contest again. The age difference between Nyantakyi and I is only two weeks. For now, the man is very young and he hasn’t said that he would not be contesting again, so I have never dreamt of succeeding him at all,’’ he told Nhyira FM.
‘’With that aside we held elections last year and he has three more years to be in office. So for me to do everything possible to replace him isn’t true.
‘’It’s very good to be ambitious as a young man and that’s not bad.’’
Kwesi Nyantakyi has been the President of the GFA since 2005.
