Former Black Stars captian C.K Akunnor believes that the FIFA Normalisation Committee should have included at least one Ghanaian ex-footballer.
FIFA yesterday announced a four-member Normalisation Committee to run Ghana Football for the next six months.
The Committee includes Dr. Kofi Amoah a business mogul, Lucy Quist- former C.E.O of Airtel Ghana, Lawyer Duah Adonten and Naa Odofoley Nortey.
C.K Akunnor believes that the addition of an ex-footballer would have made the team more complete.
“We could have been happy to see an ex-footballer in that committee,” he told Zylofon Sports. “We have knowledgeable people and if they were in there it would have helped a lot,” he added.
“We have Abedi Pele, Tony Baffoe, Sammy Kufuor, Augustine Arhinful and we would have been delighted to see any of them there so that in terms of decision affecting footballers, they would be there to help.”
Meanwhile, the ex-Wolfsburg star was quick to add FIFA knows what they are doing and believes the people constituting the normalization committee have enough pedigree to return football to normalcy.
“They know what they are doing and we pray Ghana Football comes back soon.”
“I think the people on the committee people of integrity so they will work and provide reforms that will be devoid of complications. I believe they understand the current situation and will provide us with the way forward.”
“I understand there will be room for further additions, I hope they include an ex-footballer in the commitee.”
