Oti Akenteng lashes out at NC for making Ghana scouts public
Technical Director of the Ghana football Association has lashed out at the Ghana FA Normalization Committee for announcing Black Stars scouts ahead of the African Cup of Nations.
The Ghana Football Association Normalization Committee announced Didi Dramani, David Duncan and Selas Tetteh as the scouts of the team ahead of the African Cup of Nations.
Just few days before the commencement of the competition, Oti Akenten has stated revealing the scouts to the public was a wrong move by the association and suggested it shouldn’t be repeated going forward because of the difficulties the scout go through doing their work.
“Normally it’s not advisable to announce your scouts because their job is to identify the weakness of opponents so for security sake it is not appropriate,” he said.
“I will advice that going forward we should not announce our scouts, I made such recommendations in my report when I was scouting for Ghana in Australia but it’s not being used.
“Didi Dramani was nearly beaten up when he went to watch Cameroon same applies to Sly Tetteh whilst trying to watch the Benin game yesterday,” he told Happy FM Sports
Oti Akenten also revealed what Didi Dramani went through when he went to watch Benin.
“Didi Dramani was able to watch the Cameroon game but it was their second game against a Spanish side he got into trouble but he was able to escape”
“He had to pretend he is not a Ghanaian. Sometimes he had to go to the washroom before he can note down some things,” he added.
