Businessman and politician, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, widely known as Chairman Wontumi has expressed his readiness to invest into football in the country.

Wontumi who doubles as the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) says he is ready to buy a football club or become a CEO of a local.

According to him,  he is a big fan of football and will want to see football develop in the West African country.

Speaking on Wontumi FM in Kumasi, the outspoken politician compared himself to AC Milan Silvio Berlusconi who never played football but was able to chalk a lot of success with the Italian giant.

“I am ready to hugely invest in football. I’m a businessman, and ready to do more for our football.

“If I’m to become the CEO of a club, I will make sure I buy quality players with skills and intelligence but not below 6.4 feet,” Chairman Wontumi said.

The business mogul continued: “Silvio Berlusconi never played football but he was able to win a lot of titles for AC Milan.

“It’s about time we give our football clubs to men with affluence, charisma, and swag like myself, Dr. Ofori Sarpong, Kennedy Agyapong and Dr. Osei Kwame Despite to run.

“These people will make our football attractive again,” he added.
