The founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Madam Akua Donkor, has threatened to drag the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to court if it does not rescind its decision to sack Kwasi Appiah as coach of the Black Stars.
She has, therefore, given the football governing body up to tomorrow (September 19) to rescind the decision or risk court action.
In an interview with the Daily Graphic, Madam Donkor said she was outraged at the manner the GFA treated Coach Kwasi Appiah, especially handing him the sack at the time the coach was working hard to redeem the image of the team after the Brazil World Cup fiasco.
According to the farmer and politician, the FA’s action was an attempt to throw more dust into the eyes of the Ghanaian public instead of salvaging its soiled image.
She chided the FA for hiding behind unfounded and unproven allegations of incompetence, lacking courage, control, poor strategies and substitutions, among other factors, to discredit Appiah.
For her, the FA should have given the national coach the sack immediately after the World Cup fiasco if the FA had no faith in him, but rather the football controlling body extolled Appiah’s competence and extended his contract.
She said the nation could not afford to pay huge salary and allowances to an expatriate coach at this time of economic challenges and condemned the FA for trying to sacrifice the coach to save its own dented image and reputation.
The GFP leader noted that Appiah had served the country well and deserved commendation instead of condemnation.
