Outspoken football administrator and owner of King Faisal Football club, Alhaji Abdul Karim Grunsah has said that Dr. Kofi Amoah erred by sharing $100 note to the playing body of the Ghana U20 Women’s national team.
According to the King Faisal owner, Dr. Amoah should have given the money to the appropriate body in the team to share.
Speaking on Happy FM’s Weekend Sports Alhaji Grunsah said, “Dr. Kofi Amoah didn’t do well by sharing dollars to players. He will be blamed if there’s any indiscipline among the players. He didn’t show his sense of maturity.”
He added “He should have given the money to the technical team or the coach to share it to the players. That’s how it was supposed to be done.”
A video which went viral on social media captured Dr. Kofi Amoah sharing $100 notes to the Princesses who are preparing fervently for the forthcoming FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, which is set to commence on August 5 in France.
Preparations ahead of the tournament was thrown into a disarray following government’s decision to halt football in the country in the wake of the Number 12 documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas – where some officials were captured on tape accepting bribes.
Dr. Kofi Amoah was appointed by the Government of Ghana and world football governing body FIFA, to head a newly-formed liaison team as the government works to restore normalcy to the country’s football.
He is being assisted by Technical Director of the defunct Ghana Football Association, Francis Oti Akenteng, with the duo tasked to facilitate the running of football in the country on the interim.
