Executive member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Nana Oduro Sarfo has advised erstwhile Black Stars midfielder Stephen Appiah to take a leaf from the book of current President of the Cameroon Football Federation, Samuel Eto’o if he wants to become the President of the GFA.
Stephen Appiah in a recent claimed that former Ghanaian footballers are not getting the chance around football administration, stressing that football administration is not about grammar.
“Legends and former players are not getting the chance around football administration. I have learnt something, that football is run by footballers. It is not the grammar or English that you speak.
“It is about insights, that is why when I went to Italy, without speaking Italian I could understand the coach who was speaking Italian.
Reacting to the comments, Oduro Sarfo in an interview on Onua FM has advised me to learn from Samuel Eto’o and better himself academically.
“Samuel Eto’o is the FA president for Cameroon. He needed to go to school so he can better himself academically. He joined associations that are affiliated with their FA before making plans to contest,” he told Onua FM.
“If Stephen Appiah wants to play a key role or wants to lead the GFA, he needs to have better academic knowledge and certificates,” he added.
