Executive Council member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Samuel Anim Addo says the Kurt Okraku-led administration is committed to the development of colts football.
Speaking in an interview with Happy 98.9 on Happy Sports Special Edition on Friday, Mr. Anim Addo, who doubles as a member of the GFA Juvenile committee explained that colts football has not collapsed as it is perceived in the public.
He argued that Ghana needs to harness its footballing talents at a young age if the country is to continue its tradition as being one of the continent’s greatest footballing nations.
“Colts football is still running in the country, together with the academy system.”
“The problem is that most of the owners of colt’s football club did not adapt to the modern ways of football which the GFA is trying to work and change that narrative. Now football is a very lucrative business and to succeed you will need more sponsorship and investment which the FA is working on it”.
“We were just about to start the juvenile league before the COVID-19 hit us. The FA wanted to introduce the Juvenile FA Cup, Inter-Regional Championships and many others”.
