Former Ghana Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah who doubles as a technical coordinator of the current Black Stars team has revealed his plans to run for the GFA Presidency.
Appiah believes he has the needed knowledge and is competent enough for the position with the only thing left for him been to manage a club side in Ghana for 2 to 3 years.
The former Udinese and Juventus midfield general hinted that there will come a day in the future where the game of Football in the country will be governed and managed by ex Footballers as has been by the rest of the world.
He made the comment at such a crucial time when the struggle for the position is ongoing after the Normalisation Committee announced the date of the GFA Presidential Elections. 25 October is the day when a new GFA President will be elected.
Stephen Appiah also spoke of his plans in collaborating with former players to come together to manage football in Ghana at the right time.
He said “The criteria to be part of the Association requires one to associate himself with a club for 2 to 3 years and that is what I am doing with my friends who are all former Footballers. I am having meetings with them to think and plan for what we can do and we are also looking at those ex Footballers who are managing various big clubs and those managing football Associations closely.”
