We don't make money from Black Stars friendlies - GFA Boss

Published on: 17 April 2018

Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi says talks that his outfit make so much money from Black Stars friendlies are untrue.

Over the years,  Nyantakyi and his colleagues at the FA have been heavily criticised for using the Black Stars for their personal gains.

But Nyantakyi insists, they don't et anything from that venture.

“The notion that the Black Stars is a business unit and that we have to make profit anytime we[Black Stars] play a game is wrong," he stated in an interview with Zylofon FM.

"We play friendly games because it gives the coach the opportunity to access the team, the new players and old players."

"When we play football games, it comes at a huge cost and sometimes we don't get anything from the game. Most of the times, even when we make some money, we use it to finance the game. Last time, when we didn't play any game, everybody was asking why we didn't play any game."

"The reason we did not play any game was that we did not have money and the teams that wanted to engage us in friendlies wanted us to pay for the game so that was the reason we did not play any game.
