I am personally disappointed in the FA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi for the disrespect that he has shown the soccer loving fans of this nation. We have been patronizing the local league by following the clubs from their home matches h to away matches. Yet we do not give any chance to local players and coaches when it comes to national team selection.

I do not think the so called expatriate coaches deserve the right to select the entire players for the national team, without credence to local directions and policies set by the FA. What policy am I talking about?

A policy that ensures that our best local players are given the chance to perform in the national teams, which is done everywhere in the world.

How on earth could we lose this tournament to the Zambians? Our team requires over-hauling, which must be done as quickly as possible. The aging players have to leave to make way for the young and upcoming ones who are ready to die for mother Ghana.

You have totally collapsed the local league, making it unattractive. We keep saying that the league has no star players who pull the crowd to the stadia. If they are not given the chance to play for the national team, how on earth are they going to become stars?

It is your administration that has inculcate in the minds of the players to keep seeking greener pastures abroad before they can earn a call up to the national team. In fact, you are a big shame! You couldn’t come up with any antidote to this canker, rather you have made it worse. I’m disappointed in you, as a young administrator you should have being more dynamic in the discharge of your duties.

Mr. Nyantakyi, you have to bow down your head in shame and leave your office. You have totally killed football in Ghana. Our colts league is dead, lower division matches always end in disarray, no permanent calendar for the start of the various leagues, and many other failures.

Be honest and polite to the people of Ghana by voluntarily packing out from office and come clean with Ghanaians on why you can’t continue to lead football Ghana.
