Ghana leg­end to the res­cue

Afro Voice (Western Cape) - - Sport -

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.
