The Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) has taken note of reports in many of our leading dailies and on broadcast media indicating that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will henceforth require players of Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars to sign contracts before being allowed to play for Ghana.
Many of these reports quote the GFA President Kwesi Nyantekyi at his press conference of July 2, 2014 where he indicated that there will be a strict code of conduct for players in the future.
A Citifmonline.com report of July 2, 2014 quotes the FA President as saying the following, ‘the current rules and codes of conduct of the Black Stars will be transformed into contracts that will detailed terms and conditions as basis for invitations to the national team. The contracts will cover appearance fees and bonuses.’
We welcome a holistic review of the entire Black Stars campaign and any attempts to improve our performance in future competitions and Ghanaian football in general. We are currently waiting on the exact details of what the reported contracts will contain and are eager to dialogue with the federation to come up with ways to restore the glory of the Black Stars.
We further urge the GFA to apply any standard contracts to all of our national teams as well as to players of every club playing in the local leagues when they sign agreements.
