Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi is to step down from his position as the chairman of the Black Stars Management Committtee after mounting internal pressure, Citi Sports has reported.
The Chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee position is one of the most strategic and most coveted among the FA’s inner circle because of the power that comes with it.
With the senior national team being Ghana football’s flagship brand, whoever is in charge has considerable influence. And that is why Nyantakyi took over the position from his former Vice President Fred Pappoe.
Pappoe had occupied the position from 2005 until 2011.
Since that time, Nyantakyi has been criticised for giving himself too much to chew since managing the Black Stars is a notoriously detailed job.
It is this apparent lack of detail that, internal sources tell Citi Sports, is the reason why the national team has been floundering since Nyantakyi took over in 2011.
