Former Accra Great Olympics coach, J.E Sarpong has described Francis Oti Akenteng as a failure for failing to make the Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association function properly.

After 14 years, Oti Akenteng has left the role as the technical director of the Ghana FA in March.

According to the veteran gaffer, Oti Akenteng was not respected at the Football Association rendering his job ineffective.

"Oti Akenteng for all these years tried to work but he was not respected by the former FA, so his work was not clearly seen," he told Bechem based High Radio.

"Oti too is a person that made the GFA Technical Directorate unfunctional, It wasn't functioning," he added.

"If you compare other Technical Directorates of Africa and even out of Africa to ours, we weren't doing anything here. Oti was the bane of Ghana coaching.

"Because Oti was not respected it trickled down to every coach in this country. So the FA thought was Oti wasn't good then the rest of coaches aren't good. The former FA didn't respect Ghanaian coaches," he added.

The Ghana Football Association is searching for a new technical director with application opened for interested coaches.

Bashir Hayford and Malik Jabir have all applied for the vacant position.
