Headcoach od Cape Coast Ebusua Dwarfs, J.E. Sarpong has taken a swipe at his colleagues and the coaching association for been cowards in voicing out their opinion in the relation to the improper running of football in the country.
Some Ghanaian coaches have been noted to freely unleash their candid views when the management and administrators of football in Ghana appear to be deviating from their assigned duties and coach Sarpong is one who isn’t afraid to speak.
After the Ethics committee of the FA ruled on the bribery allegation involving Techiman City and Wa Africa United the skeptics of Ghana football have been vocal expressing fear with the commencement of the league as Techiman City led by president, Charles Kwawdo Kumi are threatening the league with a court injunction.
Speaking in an interview to Kumasi based, Boss fm, coach Sarpong said, “Ghanaian coaches are ego-centric – they all have selfish interest whether it is good or bad we are all equally involved. In an instance when one decides to be vocal you will be tagged as the ‘epitome of all knowledge.”
“If I speak, David Duncan speaks and so does Bashiru Hayford and the rest they (GFA) will take us serious. But should I speak alone I get branded with names as been arrogant and big-mouthed and this is all because the coaching association is toothless and does not function unlike it is in Europe and even nearby Cameroun,” he added.
Dwarfs will begin life in the GPL with a game against Dreams FC at the newly built Cape Coast stadium.
