Ghana FA presidential hopeful Vincent Sowah Odotei feels ‘sick and tired’ with the decision to appoint a technical adviser for the Black Stars.

An avid critic of the Kwesi Nyantakyi-led administration, Sowah Odotei is livid with the decision to appoint a technical adviser for coach Kwesi Appiah.

The Black Stars trainer requested for a technical help after Ghana’s disastrous campaign at the World Cup in Brazil.

The Ghana FA set-up a three-man committee to firm up the adviser for the team ahead of the qualifiers for the 2015 African Cup of Nations in Morocco.

But the former King Faisal boss has launched a tirade at the Ghana FA president in particular, claiming he’s sick and tired’ with the administrative style of the 44-year-old.

“ I realize that this Nyantakyi and his administration are a joke and I will not apologise for that,” he told Adom FM

“They keep going forward and backward because they don’t have a plan. Over the last ten-years I have consistently told you that Nyantakyi is just good at doing try and error.

“He has succeeded in manipulating everybody to accept that he’s the best person to administer football in the country meanwhile he cannot do anything.

“Here we are! We’re talking about technical adviser. How can technical adviser fit into the long term plan of the FA?

“He has taken the management of our football so low. The money that you will pay the technical adviser can’t you save the money and channel it into other things like giving it to football people?

“He must take the bold decision about Kwesi Appiah and stop pushing things under the carpet.

“I believe if the FA was his private job, he will not add him to his wage bill and will immediately take a decision on him. We are just sick and tired of what Nyantakyi is doing.” he fumed.

It is widely believed that Serbian Milovan Rajevac has been settled on as the technical adviser for the Ghanaian trainer.
