Charles Taylor slams Oduro Sarfo over ‘academics and football’ comments

Call us

Former Ghana international Charles Taylor has slammed Nana Oduro Sarfo, an Executive Council member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following his response to ex-Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah.

Stephen Appiah had called on the authorities to consider the experience of ex-footballers in football administration in Ghana.

However, Oduro Sarfo told Appiah together with other former players who wish to play key roles in Ghana Football to first acquire basic certification through education.

“If Stephen Appiah wants to play a key role or wants to lead the GFA, he needs to have better academic knowledge and certificates,” he told Onua FM.

In response to the comments made by the Executive Council member, Charles Taylor has expressed absolute disappointment while defending Appiah’s submission.

“At the GFA, I believe Oduro Sarfo ranks first among those who speak before thinking. He speaks before realizing what he has said is inappropriate. If you wish to tie school [education] into what Stephen said, then they [GFA] have failed miserably. Because, despite their schooling, they are not achieving anything at the FA.

“I would also urge them to learn some common sense to improve Ghana Football, as it worked for previous leaders who had little education but common sense. Just look at the state of Ghana football. Do you think we can run football through education?” Taylor told Angel TV.
