Former Black Stars and Kumasi Asante Kotoko player Abdul Karim Razak has stated that naming a normalization committee without an ex-footballer on it is not the right decision.
Kofi Amoah (president), Lucy Quist (Vice-president), Duah Adonteng and Naa Odofoley Nortey were named as members of the normalization committee by FIFA on Friday.
“Golden boy” as he is affectionately called implores that a proper reform can’t be done without including an ex-footballer on the committee.
” You can’t do any proper reforms without including any ex-footballer. I taught Rev Osei Kofi was among the committee as it was earlier speculated. It will not be good to do reforms without including any ex-footballer in that committee ” he told Zuria Fm Sports as reported by FootballmadeinGhana.com
“Some of us have decided not to talk on the recent happenings in our football. It seems we have been forgotten so soon” he lamented.
However, when asked if he is ready to help the normalization committee Razak answered
“Why not, it depends. For me, if it is about technicalities and player management I’m always ready. If it is anything apart from that and there are people who have specialized in that why not give it to them.”
“We all want the betterment of Ghana football. My biggest worry is neglecting the ex-footballers in something likes this. We still have a lot to offer to the country” the 1978 African best player concluded.
