'Ideas-lacking' Ghana FA technical chief Francis Oti Akenteng under-fire to resign

Published on: 27 November 2018

Ghana FA technical director Francis Oti-Akenteng is under scathing attack to resign from the role amid allegations of favouritism and cronyism against his tenure.

The veteran, who has been head of the Ghana Football Association technical directorate for more than a decade, appears to reached the tipping point.

He has been accused of being the bane of coaching in the West African nation as pressure begins to mount on him to quit from his role.

Several coaches have complained about the professional ethics of the former but have been unable to voice it out until outspoken gaffer JE Sarpong launched a blistering attack on the experienced man. 

The country's failure on the international stage has been attributed to the lack of technical direction of the Ghana FA.

Oti Akenteng has been accused of lacking ideas to transform his outfit, dogged with allegations of nepotism, favouritism and cronyism - an allegation which he has rejected.

The country's exit from the Africa Women's Nations Cup and the FIFA U-17 Women's World by the Black Queens and Black Maidens respectively have ruffled feathers in the West African nation.

The Black Princesses have flattered to deceive while the home-based stars lost to Namibia in an international friendly over the weekend.

It appears the stage is ripe for the long-standing Ghana FA technical director Oti Akenteng to exit the scene after more than 10-years.
