Rev. Osei Kofi has stated that unless he gets some money in his account in the name of the Retired Footballers Endowment Fund announced by the Ghana Football Association, he will remain pessimistic about it.
The Ghana Football Association on Monday at the Alisa Hotel announced a 5-man trustee chaired by Prof Kwame Karikari of the Communications department of the University of Ghana to administer a Retired Footballers Endowment Fund.
Despite, the plan put in place by the GFA to ensure the implementation of the fund, Rev. Osei Kofi, who is a critic of the FA doubts its implementation, because they too long for its coming.
‘They (GFA) should have done it long time. We would have been consoled if it had started. I heard they (GFA) did a press briefing, they came to boast. Nothing has happened, so why didn’t they wait for it to start before announcing it,’ he told Hot FM.
‘Some of my colleague former footballers always ask of when it is starting. Even the chairman of the trustees said that it is March that we will hear again about it. They (GFA) are even yet to get some money and deposit it and when it yields returns then the fund could be established out of it, so when is this starting at all?
‘Unless I am called one day and told you have some GHC 100 or so in the bank, so go for it, before I will understand’.
Osei Kofi was part of the Black Stars teams that won both the 1963 and 1965 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
