The dust has settled and Gh ana soccer is yet to get out of the Kigali “genocide” of yesterday, since 1984 when then coach Emmanuel kwasi afranie failed to heed to the advice of the sporting fraternity and went ahead to use then so-called establish professionals who were plying their trades in Gabon fc 105’s etc., 19 years later a “top-notch quick tempered P.E MASTER sorry coach” has repeat the same mistake of the past, If yours truly is asked to describe the current black stars coach ,who I think should connect a flight from Rwanda,I will tell you he came to Ghana to pay us back after what he termed the ill-treatment meted out to him in the early 90’s by the then GFA.As k me again and I will tell you there should be a serious scrutiny in the whole affair of contracting the man who won’t listen to advice but think he knows too much and is yet to win a major trophy,GFA chairman uncle Ben kouffie,what is your reaction?is it going to be the same ‘won gyae no ma onye n’adwuma na eekyire y’aka ho asem or the world cup 2006 is the target”,I think I will advice you step down with your top class coach to save Ghana football and the new soccer academy from extinction. You wanna know why because instead of letting our proven local coach to use our small fishes to qualify us to meet the sharks at the upcoming African soccer fiesta in TUNISIA, wait a minute? What does Tunisia brings to mind ,nine{9}years ago messrs Aggry fyn and Jim agrah failed to listen to Ghana and they paid dearly for it ,when we were eliminated from the nations cup,ironically it was burkhard’s trusted mr.Eddie Ansah the alleged 50year old goaltender was in post. This man came to Ghana to run the show for Ghanaians but he was always seen on television answering questions from the press,whilst the pitch should be his office ,I think there is no need to keep him as blackstars coach or we continue to cause “financial loss to the state” since the zivadinovic’s money is still not accounted for .Burkhard should render an unqualified apology to all Ghanaians for the way he treated as by sometimes been insulting. For most soccer fans the attention should be on the black queens,boxing and other disciplines since the black stars heartache is getting to much and the excuses from officialdom is irritating,the truth is that Ghana soccer needs a serious “house cleaning”not the 1979 style but the grey hairs at the GFA must go for professionals in the field of management to take over,since that will bring some respite in to our game.I think I will end here and get ready for the next press briefing from GFA foreign press officer, I hope you know who I’m talking about. Now the question is the local pros were sidelined, what players are they going to use in the world cup qualifiers?the holidaying foreign based professionals or the small fishes like mike osei,don bortey and the others or the Turkish ,Greece, Russia based pros?
