Laryea Kingston backs Sammy Kuffour’s call for Kwesi Nyantakyi’s exit as GFA boss

Ex Hearts of Oak star Laryea Kingston is the latest to call for the immediate exit of Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The 33-year-old says he is in full support of a similar call made by former Ghana defender Sammy Kuffour who suggests Kwesi Nyantakyi has no new ideas to offer and must go.

Nyantakyi is up for re-election next year where all the various electoral positions in Ghana football will be up for grabs.

While many – perceived to be in the majority – believe the astute lawyer will retain his place as President of the Ghana FA, there are many others who are opposed to his re-election.

Sammy Kuffour, the ex Bayern Munich star is one of such people who want to see the back of Kwesi Nyantakyi who has led the Ghana FA since 2004.

Kuffour’s comments is now being backed by his former Ghana playmate Laryea Kingston who believes ‘it is time for change’.

“I also believe it is about time the handlers of our football make their way to the exit,” he told Kumasi-based Metro FM.

“I agree with him [Sammy Kuffour] that we need a change. I am with [Sammy] Kuffour is he says he [Kwesi Nyantakyi] must step down, he has been there for far too long.

“Most of the administrators didn’t play the game and therefore they do not look out for the interest of players.

“But I also blame some of the footballers because they sell their integrity to the administrators.

“But I believe it is time for a change. We need to give others the opportunity to also come and show what they can do.”

Nyantakyi’s reign has seen the unprecedented three-time qualification of the Black Stars to the World Cup.

His administration has however been criticized the most for the alleged poor organization of the league despite the massive enhancement in its sponsorship package.
