Football management is not 1V1D policy - Alagidede shades politicians

Karela United's public relations officer Eric Alagidede has taken a swipe at government in the wake of Ghana’s calamitous AFCON 2019 exit.

According to him, the five-member management committee set up by government which were mostly politicians did have the expertise to manage football leading to Black Stars abysmal AFCON campaign.

In the lead up to AFCON 2019, a management committee was put up to manage the activities of the senior national team, Black Stars in their quest to end the 37-year trophy drought.

The Committee was headed by former Kotoko Chairman and GNPC boss, Dr Kofi Koduah Sarpong, with Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Perry Okudzeto as vice.

Other members include former Ghanaian footballer, Ibrahim Sunday, Francis Asenso-Boakye and Madam Abena Osei Asare.

"Look at the management committee, the man who said that we should applaud them for accepting to serve on the committee, the Deputy Sports Minister is a disaster,” Alagidede told Starr Sports.

"Madam Abena Osei Asare, the Deputy Finance Minister I can credit her for some intelligence when it comes to running the economy but when it comes to football I beg to differ, the Deputy chief of staff, Francis Asenso Boakye what were these gentlemen and lady going to do in Egypt?" 

“They thought managing football is mounting political platforms to promise we will give you one village, one dam (1V1D) and what have you.”

“Football management is very different," he ended.
