New GFA boss: Gabby ‘lobbies’ for Tony Baffoe
A close confidante of President Nana Akufo Addo, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, says former Ghana international Anthony Baffoe will be the best Ghanaian to lead the reformation of Ghana Football Association.
According to him, Baffoe, who is a match coordinator at the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, “knows the game and the business of the game, locally and internationally.”
An Accra High Court on Thursday gave the green light for the dissolution of the current Football Association following the Number 12 investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas. The video exposes the rot in Ghana football as many top football officials were caught receiving monies to fix games .
Gabby believes Mr Baffoe is the perfect man to lead the new GFA. He gave his reasons on his facebook wall Saturday:
“I’ve known him for over 40 years. In my view, he will be the best Ghanaian to lead the reformation of Ghana Football Association. He is decent. He believes in discipline. He is not corrupt. He loves and lives football. He is a patriot. He knows the game and the business of the game, locally and internationally. He has played at the highest level, in Europe’s top leagues, and captained Ghana’s national team. He is respected worldwide in football. When the dust settles, help me convince him and the powers that be to make him the man for the new GFA. His name is Anthony Baffoe”
