Cheetah FC president, Abdul Hayye Yartey, has lavished praises on GFA President Kurt E S Okraku for changing the face of football despite being in office for less than a year.
According to Yartey, Kurt Okraku is doing very well despite the coronovirus pandemic which has halted football activities in the country.
Mr Yartey rated Mr Okraku and his administration 90 per cent on his scorecard explaining only the coronovirus stopped him from giving the Administration 100 per cent.
“I think he (Kurt Okraku) has done very well because he never inherited a running FA. It was an FA with problems, it is not like there was a transition from Kwesi Nyantakyi to him. It’s different, where our football was in trouble, where partners were running away and you have to bring back the love. And that slogan alone was something that was big,” he told TV Africa.
“I will give him 90 per cent. Even the reason why I’m not giving him full marks is because of COVID and because of that sponsorship is not coming in but definitely he will get there.”
Yartey also hailed the GFA for the communication inflow since they assume office.
“I have been in football for long and this is my first time seeing that apparently there are for instance 70 clubs in the Central region, there 103 clubs in Greater Accra. I’m now getting to know for the first time we have 400 and something referees. So we see good communication flow,” he added.
