Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Amponsah has said that there is no contention between himself and Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kurt Okraku as some may perceive.
He made this known during an interview with an Accra-based radio station.
“People have this perception that when you go into a competition with someone then they presume or think you are enemies”.
He believes some may hold this perception because he lost to Kurt Okraku in the GFA Presidential elections held in 2019.
“After losing the elections, I congratulated him and moved on. I have no problems with him (Kurt Okraku). I don’t have anything against him and will be surprised if he does”, the CEO stated.
Meanwhile, Nana Yaw Amponsah has confirmed that he is still at the post as Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko even though he has been handed a 5-year ban by the GFA as a director of Phar Rangers.
Rumors circulated that the President of GFA and Nana Yaw Amponsah had a rift between them following the ban handed to directors of Phar Rangers Club for misconduct.
Division One league side Phar Rangers were handed a five-year ban from all Ghana Football Association (GFA) associated competitions.
The FA also announced that aside from the five-year imposed on the club, all of its shareholders and directors have also been banned from all football-related activities for the same period.
This decision followed after Phar Rangers were charged with two counts; Withdrawing from all GFA competitions without just cause after 2020/21 Division League had started and withdrawing from all GFA’s competitions whilst failing to give a satisfactory reason for the withdrawal from the 2021 FA Cup competition.
