Kwesi Nyantakyi says there is more to life than football

Former Ghana FA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi has responded to his 15-year global ban from football related activities, insisting "there is more to life than football".

A former Fifa Council member and vice-president of the Confederation of African Football, Nyantakyi was banned for life by Fifa in October 2018 for breaking bribery and corruption rules.

Mr. Nyantakyi has insisted the footage was doctored to falsely incriminate him.

"I have taken a backseat. I don't know when am returning to football. I have not done anything about the 15 years ban," he told KINGS TVGH SPORTS when quizzed if he intends to further appeal the decision,"

"Let's put football behind. There is more to life than football. I am a lawyer. I didn't learn football in school. It's just a past-time. I have too many things doing at the moment.

"I put in a long of work for whatever that I do. I also have banking background and so everything is fine.

Mr. Nyantakyi ruling can be appealed at the Swiss Federal Tribunal should he wish to do so
