President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku, has dismissed reports suggesting that he sacked or failed to renew the mandate of Coach Kwasi Appiah because he had a personal vendetta against the former Black Stars coach.
Kwasi Appiah was shown the exit and was replaced by his assistant Charles Akonnor following the expiration of his two and half year contract at the beginning of the year.
The exit of Kwasi Appiah led to accusations that he was sacked because he refused to invite players of some members in the current GFA administration before the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.
But Kurt Okraku in an interview on GhanaWeb’s Sports Check says the decision to let Appiah leave at the expiration of his contract was unanimous and not his singular act.
“It will be most unfortunate because it could sound like a disrespect to all the twelve members on the Executive Council and other stakeholders who were engaged before that singular decision was taken.”
“We all know that we woefully didn’t perform at the AFCON, we all know the happenings from the Brazil 2014 World Cup, we all know all the things that have happened before.
“So when the Council put the motion into vote it was twelve out of twelve a big No.
“It was not about the president of the FA not wanting somebody,” Kurt Okraku concluded.
