Nyantakyi: Forgive Grant, he has withdrawn the ‘bulls**t’ comment

The president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has urged Ghanaians to move beyond Avram Grant’s “bulls**t” comment.

The Black Stars coach has come under intense criticism after telling Ghanaians to concentrate on football and “not the bulls**t” during a post-match presser of Ghana’s 3-1 win over Mozambique in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on March 27.

The Israeli later withdrew his comments, saying his utterances were misunderstood.

“It’s unacceptable because in Ghana we don’t use such words,” Nyantakyi told GhanaFans.

“It’s difficult for an average Ghanaian to make such pronouncements.

“We have also expressed our resentment over those expressions. He has also been remorseful and has withdrawn those comments.

“So I think we should accept it in good faith a move forward.”

Grant has been on a warpath particularly with the local media over his persistent stay abroad ‘at the expense of monitoring the local topflight.’

He took over as Ghana coach in December 2014, leading the Black Stars to the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea two months later.
