Former Black Stars midfielder Derek Boateng says Ghana football will be safe in the hands of GFA Presidential candidate George Afriyie as he is the best man to revive the fortunes of Ghana football.

According to the former Panathinaikos player, the Okyeman Planners owner stands out tall among his peers competing for the vacant GFA top seat due to the qualities he possesses.

Speaking to Asempa FM, Boateng implored the 120 delegates to vote Geroge Afriyie into power as he is the right man to redeem, revive and restore Ghana football.

"All the candidates are fine people who can lead Ghana football but for me, George Afriyie is the right candidate," he told Asempa FM.

"He has been the vice president of the Ghana Football Association and has helped players and clubs in the local league. His passion for the game is unquestionable.

"He has proven himself over the years and I know the delegates will do the right by voting for him because Ghana football will be safe in the hands of George Afriyie," he added.

George Afriyie is battling it out with Kurt Okraku, Fred Pappoe, Amanda Clinton, Nana Yaw Amponsah and George Ankama Mensah to be Kwesi Nyantakyi's successor.

The Normalisation Committee have taken charge of Ghana football for over a year following the ban placed on GFA capo Kwesi Nyantakyi and on October 25, delegates will be going to the polls to elect a new leader to steer the affairs of the Association for the next four years.

The elections will be held at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Ridge, Accra.
