Ghana legend Abedi Pele has no interest in contesting in the Ghana Football Association presidential race next year, this according to his publicist.

The ex-Ghana captain was mentioned as one of the three men likely to stand against incumbent Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Former Asante Kotoko chief Herbert Mensah and Ghana FA Executive Committee member and for spokesperson for the FA Randy

But the camp of the triple African Footballer of the Year has quelled those rumours

"Abedi Pele has no need to contest for the presidency of the Ghana Football Association at this moment. The media reports about him contesting are unfounded because no body has spoken to him," his publicist Fiifi Tackie told

"He is currently concentrating on Nania FC and other ventures that he is involved with."

    True talk. Ghanaians don't like serious people. That is why everything is collapsing. We like mediocre and corrupt people who will steel money and then share peanuts to people to chop. Abedi has been successful in everything he does but because he doesn't accept mediocrity, we hate him.
