Lawyer Moses Foh-Amoaning has revealed that he was offered the opportunity to become the Ghana Football Association President.

Moses Foh-Amoaning turned down the opportunity to run Ghana football in the 90s as he believes the association has the tendency of being engulfed with corruption.

At the seminar held at Bukom Boxing Arena, the former ex-Boxing chief said that the GFA structure has made it easier for it members to engage in various illegalities which convinced him to decline the opportunity.

“I was offered an opportunity to run Ghana football but I told myself what’s in football and what’s in boxing. But I realized that in football the people administering are footballers and club owners so they became judges of their own cases."

"So I said there’s an inbuilt conflict of interest here. But when I look at boxing, if you are a license C, you don’t sit on the board. If you are a manager, promoter or an agent you can’t be on the board.

"So that’s the difference between the boxing regulatory body and football. So when I looked at the two I said, I preferred boxing”, Foh-Amoaning said.
