President for the Normalization Committee (NC) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Dr. Kofi Amoah has appealed to the football community in the country to put aside all differences and work towards making the sports lucrative.

Running of football in the past has become very difficult with several club owners sometimes finding it difficult to pay salaries of their players.

In an era where clubs in other parts of the world are making billions from football every year, Dr. Kofi Amoah has called on stakeholders of the game in the country to take a cue and work together to create a football economy that will be profitable for all.

“It is true football brings happiness but it has now become a business. Though we started before some of the foreign countries they are making a lot of money from football economy”.

“When you look at Spain, football contributes 3% of the GDP, about $50-80 billion a year which employs a lot of people”, he said in an interview with Angel FM on Thursday evening.

The business mogul added, “So let’s put aside all our differences, we are all brothers and sometimes there will be some arguments but we should not give space for violence in our football”.

“We should take away all those things and support the football clubs as well as all the players to ensure the progress of our football”.
