Ghana legend to the rescue
FORMER Ghana captain Abedi Pele has been appointed to help run football in the country in the wake of a scandal that saw the government dissolve the sport’s governing body.
Pele, a three-time African footballer of the year who played most of his club football in Europe, was named in a fivemember interim committee to manage the sport.
Others include businessman Kofi Amoah and president of the Ghana League Clubs Association Cudjoe Fianoo.
The appointments follow a TV documentary in which GFA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi, was accused of requesting $11m (R145m) from reporters posing as big-time investors to secure lucrative government contracts.
