Is he incompetent? - Willie Klutse perturbed after GFA leave out Bernhard Lippert from three-member committee

Published on: 15 September 2021

Technical Director for relegated Inter Allies, Willie Klutse, has raised concerns over the exclusion of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Technical Director, Bernhard Lippert from the committee put together to select a new Black Stars coach.

The GFA Executive Council named a three-member committee led by Vice President Mark Addo to select a new coach after Charles Kwabla Akonnor and his deputies were sacked on Monday after a poor start of the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

The exclusion of Bernhard Lippert from the committee has attracted a lot of questions.

According to Klutse, the committee is not complete without a technical person who will also contribute to appointing a new coach for the senior national team.

“Football is technical work and not paperwork. The mental state of a technical person is different from that of an administrator. A technical man must be on that committee. It would make the committee complete”, he told Happy FM.

“If they have appointed a technical man to head our GFA why can’t he be on the committee? Is it because they don’t trust him.

"That is his job to assess the national team and offer advice to the national team.

“If he is incompetent then what is his business at the GFA”, he added.
