We are ready to offer free consultancy service to Ghana - Spanish La Liga
Officials in charge of running the Spanish La Liga have expressed their readiness to offer free consultancy service to Ghana as the country seeks to recover from the crisis that rocked its football following the airing of the Anas Aremeyaw expose that captured some key football officials engaging in various acts of corruption.
This was made known by the director of LaLiga Africa Antonio Barradas who is in the country to explore ways of improving the presence of the league in Ghana amidst rumours that Kumasi Asante Kotoko will play a Spanish club in 2019.
Antonio Baraddass in an interview called on stakeholders of football in the country to strive to restore sanity in the administration of the game and assured Ghana of their eagerness to help take its football to the next level.
He said that La Liga has been offering assistance to Nigeria and South Africa and thus will not turn down a similar call from Ghana.
“First you need to get your house in order and if you get your house in order we will come and do it for free. We have done it in Nigeria. We have opened offices in Nigeria and working close with South Africa Federation. So if it’s something we can help, La Liga is ready to help Africa football. I represent La Liga Africa and we are going step by step. We cannot go to every country so we are doing everything slowly. We went to South Africa and Nigeria and definitely, we will come to Ghana. If they need our help then we will bring some people from Spain. As I said we have a winning module and we can pass it over, he said.
Ghana football is currently going through a crisis with the government suspending football activities after it emerged in the Anas expose that some officials of the Ghana Football Association use their offices for alleged corrupt and fraud practices.
However, there seem to be an end in sight for the crisis with the impending arrival of the FIFA Normalization Committee that will run Ghana football from now till 31st March 2018.
The Committee which is expected to be announced by close of this week is expected to replace the dissolved Executive Committee of the GFA and come up with a roadmap for the elections of officials to administer football in the country.
