I was treated like a king in other countries- Oti Akenteng

Former Technical Director of the GFA, Oti Akenteng, revealed that he was treated like a king in other countries due to his role but it was the opposite in Ghana.

The 65 year old's contract ended in March and GFA decided against extending it. They are in search of his successor.

In an interview with Joy Sports, Akenteng revealed that he was held in high esteem during his travels.

“It is here [Ghana] that people don’t appreciate being a technical director. I have been to so many countries and was held and treated like a King."

“I was held in high esteem any time I went to seminars even in African countries. Ireland treated me like a King when I went there for two weeks. I represented Africa at the world level as a technical consultant, I led seminars on youth football development many times, so it is not a small thing to be the head of the technical department of the Ghana Football Association and I am proud I headed that position”.
