Former Asante Kotoko vice chairman Kennedy â€œCapuccinoâ€ Agyapong says Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi cannot be blamed for the countryâ€™s World Cup fiasco.
The businessman wants those calling for his head to wait for the associationâ€™s congress next year.
Agyapong believes player indiscipline cost Ghanaâ€™s calamitous campaign in Brazil and not the FA chief.
â€œSome of the players donâ€™t want to sacrifice and they do not respect like players such as Stephen Appiah and others did. They were money conscious and I think that let us down,â€ he is quoted by the Daily Guide.
â€œThose calling for his head accuse him of the falling standards in the local league which I disagree.
â€œIn the past, quality players like Joe Debrah, Shamo Quaye, Emmanuel Armah, Prince Polley and others attracted fans to the stadia. Now, the few quality ones play for just a season and their clubs sell them to foreign clubs. So you go to the stadium and you donâ€™t enjoy good soccer because there are no stars.
â€œOur excellent performances in previous World Cups have made Ghanaian players very attractive so foreign clubs chase them making our leagues weaker by the day.
â€œSome of us know how Nyantakayiâ€™s presence on the CAF Executive Committee has benefited Ghana as a whole and so he should be encouraged.
â€œEverything points to the fact that he and his team have learnt form the Brazil experience, which I think will help take Ghana football to where we want it to be.
â€œI suggest all stakeholders must come together to look for solutions to address this problem to make our league stronger.â€
