Kwesi Nyantakyi says he will quit hi Black Stars management committee role

Ghana FA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi says he will quit as the Black Stars management committee chairman following recent criticism of his role in the national team.

The federation will shake-up its committee in the coming days and Nyantakyi says he will quit the position which has become a matter of interest for many.

This comes after Ghana crashed out of the World Cup at the group phase and the country’s participation in the tournament in Brazil was besmirched by player indiscipline.

The criticism of the role he plays in the national team is that since he is the GFA president and chairman of the Black Stars management committee there is no proper and independent supervision.

This has led to calls that he must quit the Black Stars management committee position so that he can supervise the work of the management committee when things go wrong.

This looks to have forced the hand f Nyantakyi to reveal that he will step down from the position in the next reshuffle.

“I have accepted to vacate the position,” Nyantakyi revealed to the Accra-based radio station Peace FM.

“I have noticed Ghanaians are really worried over it. I think there are many people around who can take up the position as the management committee chairman.

“When it’s time for the review for the various management committees, maybe you might not see me as the management committee chairman,” he concluded.

Nyantakyi has led Ghana to several successes since taking over the federation in 2005.

Under his leadership Ghana qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 2006 and has successfully reached three successive World Cup.

Ghana is the only African country to have won the U20 World Cup and this was achieved under his leadership in 2009.

    GSN, stop wasting our time with deaD news! If you don’t have fresh news for us, just shut the fuck up. Nana Adwoa Twekese will deal with you very soon!

  2. Akua Doris says:

    Good news indeed.
    Nyantakyi needs to step aside. Coach Appiah needs to take a bow as well.

    More importantly, Sulley Muntari & his gang – the so-called Three Amigos who think they are bigger than the country they serve must be banned for good.

  6. Tanko says:

    Not enough!!! Step aside as the president if the FA too. Power drunk! It’s about time you think of going back to the courts and handle criminal cases and maybe…. Just maybe you encounter Sulley Muntari there and try to decsipline him but not on the football park. How many terms do u want to be at that post? Staying long there has made you an imposer and you are in your way to become a tyrant. Now, you don’t have to be part of the honorable people that are about to solve the mess you created because you created it. Ghanaians are not only dissatisfied with you but are also very angry at you. We don’t want you there any longer and we say enough of the arrogance

  7. Rasheed says:

    @Akua Doris,please save your breath on those 3 players,because right now ,they don’t need black stars.They have made their money and may retire in 2 or 3 years from now.

  8. Akua Doris says:

    Your retort to my earlier comments reveal what a fool and moron you are indeed.

    Even in the jungle where much of the activities thrive on instincts, there is an order and rank which is adhered to.

    I’m sure you’ve been beating your dad lately – A man of small brain indeed.

  9. Akua Doris says:

    @ Rasheed

    That’s fine. Let the incorrigible Sulley and his cohorts take their money and mediocrity to their clubs.

    Ghana deserves better. Let’s save the honor of playing for the nation for the disciplined, classy and skillful.

  10. Akua Doris says:

    @ OGYA

    Soon Sulley will be beating your dad because he’s richer than him.
    And he will be expecting you to sing his praising for how well hit him because who are simply a fool.

    Even the Messis, Ronaldos, Robbens, etc play under coaches who may not know how to kick the ball. It’s such discipline which has contributed to their successes for the world to envy.

    GHANA does not need a rogue, semi-illiterate and no manners and only consumed by sheer indiscipline.

    If you need someone to beat your dad, I have Sulley’s phone no. I’ll give him a call for you.

    • Sean says:

      Akua Doris you right about the messis, ronaldos, robbens etc…. Yes it’s because their leaders always present qualified and disciplined coaches to them and for that matter, corruption isn’t their problem so come again please. Do u even think before making those crazy comparisons? I wish Sule killed that man to set as an example to all the corrupt old fools in the country. Lazy leaders with weak brains. God bless Essien, Sule and awesome Kevin Amen

  11. Dee says:

    Eii Akua Doris.lol…in fact u have made my day.

  12. 1st ghanaian to own a fon says:

    @akua, fuck you wai
    Muntary did the right thing nd if it hadent been him, we wld not had known all these corrupt officials of gfa

  13. 1st ghanaian to own a fon says:

    Fuck you akua Doris

  14. shine says:

    Nyantekyi please just quit FA too. we the fans of Black stars dont like you please it is not by force that you should kept on begging Ghanaians to stay,just bounce simple. Kwesi Appiah too should follow you as well so that you can employ him into your house to looks after your pikids. Any Ghanaian who insulted both Muntari Essien and Boateng shall not be peace forever in their lives times. These guys killed themselves for Ghana,they are fighting corruptions in Ghana footballism. All the million dollars president gave to mother fucking GFA what do they do with that vast money? they fuck up and hired the most high paid prostitutes to Brazil and fuck their assholes small small shameles GFA. As long as we remain the fans of the Black stars Nyantekyi and kwesi appiah and GFA board members shall exit to hell. If they failes we will hunt them down one by one. We the fans hate them most days and nites. Nyantekyi do not beg Ghanaians for this jobs just bounce and be free,you people are distroying the image of Ghanaian football. Because of politics you made a plans with your board members so that Black stars will not progress as long as you stay as GFA board. You shall dag your own graveyard. The clock is ticking guns shall flows around your house untill both of you quit GFA satanic Agents from their father lusifa fifa. My point is GFA dont like the current president just because his a Northerner we knows all your moves and we are taking one step at a time,and when our elbows are pushed to a wall mmmmm atomic bomb buuuum. No one is praying for a fight but if you bring it just bring it. All Black stars friendly matches they play before the World cup has been sold out we knew it. Ghana V USA match was sold out we knew it. Kevin Boateng wasnt happy when the GFA agreed for the deal and GFA sacked him God shall purnished Asamoah Gyan for his evil acts for helping GFA to sacked those players all of you God is not sleeping you shall pay for it mother fuckers.

  15. Rasheed says:

    @Akua Doris,thank you for your insults.Have a nice day.

  16. shine says:

    Do not blame Akua Doris. Do you guys know why? Akua Doris got a vast vagina thats why GFA fucked her hard in Brazil. She is one of the prostitute GFA fucked in Brazil. In fact Dori your vaginal is smelling hhmmmmm. How many time GFA board members pound inside your vast vagina? ugly penises fuck you dirty Akua Dori go and clean it before you weared pampers. Fuck you Doris.

  17. Akua Doris says:

    @ Ist Ghanaian to own a Fon

    What corruption did Sulley helped to unearth? Am I missing something here?

    Seems you’re not following reports. Sulley’s ‘beef’ was about a delay in payment of an appearance fee. And it was at such meeting to assure the players that the money would be duly paid as promised was when he displayed how uncouth he is with his senior.

    To you this a worth cheering for. I find myself in the same camp as Sulley’ dad who believes this was a deplorable and shameful act which warrants an apology.

    In fact the dad was said to have advised Sulley prior to their departure to Brazil to control his emotions.

    Did he know something we did not know?

  18. Akua Doris says:

    @ Rasheed

    I do not recall insulting you and have no desire to do so. Yours were genuine concerns although I do not agree with you.

    Mine to take OGYA to the cleaners and help him to reason to logic. I’m equally sympathetic though knowing it takes a long time for some to reason.

    By the way Sulley’s dad was reported to have said he warned his son prior to the team’s departure against any unruly behavior.
    DID HE KNOW SOMETHING WE DIDN’T KNOW?

  19. Akua Doris says:

    @ SHINE

    Just remember that the only time a meaning and constructive discussion devulge into meaningless, irrational, senseless ranting like yours is when imbecile jump into the frail.

    Your local mental facility I just learnt is accepting new patients. Your neighbors are willing to lend you a hand with a ride.

    What a fool! Someone just sent me a text that you learnt about such vulgar utterances from your poor mother.
    “Aboa”

  20. Tanko says:

    The world today is such….. If you insist on what’s yours. The declare you to be indecsipline. That’s what Sulley did. Armah Parker has no business poking his nose after his boss (Byantakyi ) on the same issue. Now someone should tell me what black stars management comitee functionaries are when the team travels for tournament apart from going there to spend monies that the country don’t have. When someone like Sulley Muntari say no to good for nothing comitee member, you called him indecsiplined. Who is damn decsiplined in Ghana? Why do you think jerry Rawlings used to slap his incompetent vices and others who might be older than him. The answer was always corruption and incompetences. Nyantakyi would step aside with your cohorts Saanie Darga and Kwesi Appiah and all those incompetent members of the corrupt FA. Ghanaians say no to corrupt and incompetent leaders.

  21. shine says:

    Ghana Government also warn GFA to pay players on time after lifting millions of dollars to Brazil what did they do? fuck up what words did Sulley Muntari Father told him? his father told him to leave corrupted GFA members but because Sulley Muntari is a good human and wanted justice to be done he had done the right thing. We cant never forgive GFA for rest of our lives spending huge Ghana monies for free. Look at hardships in this country everyone says John Mahama, Not knowing the president has nothing against the nation because of pilfering leaders amount the country like GFA. Nyantekyi now knows that Government had set a commitee to look into the matter does why his saying he wants to resign from Black stars Chairmanship. Our problems are that GFA including kwesi appiah and mose parker should please bounce we the fans dont like them at all simply. This country belongs to all of us and we must do the right thing to safe our country. Anyone who spend Ghana resources money for free God Almighty should purnish them

  22. Nana Adwoa T. Kese says:

    @ Akua Doris. Thanks sister so much for standing up to these brainless Ghanaian men. I wonder the kind of women they sleep with. A sister will make a simple analysis through her observations and uncritical thinking, less confident Ghana man without a meaningful contribution will resort to insults.
    I have always prove to you all Ghana man how stupid some of you are, just read all the comments above and 96% of men here either they are insulting or whatever they’re writing does not make sense. Some of the men here just lack common sense approach.
    I agree and disagree with my sister Akua Doris on Muntari. I thinking the incompetence of the G(FA) and the AA being tactically bankrupt annoyed the “big 3″, Since these players knew this world cup is their last and also due to the incompetence of the coach they’re going to be eliminated early. They were very angry. These guys despite their bad side, they also understand the game because they have played under top class coaches. My typical example is our match against USA. Tactically AA was totally lost, why should you bench KPB and play Jordan Ayew, Opare and John boye were out-played whiles Shlupp was dropped and rashid sumaila bench. And, sis if you’re sweating for the nation and all these lazy Government officials roaming around living on- top of everything I don’t you will take it light.
    I agree with you on the coach and Nyantekye though. Anyway, a good coach will not need these players in 4 years.

  23. Godwins says:

    @Doris… I read every comment of yours with keen interest.. You offer what your men can’t offer..
    The only language they( Ghana men) understand and speak is ‘insult’. Can’t there be civilty in this GSN? godwinevoh@gmail.com

    I agreed with you on the coach and Nyantekye though. Anyway, these guys knew that was their last world cup and no coach will build his team around them.

  25. Akua Doris says:

    @ SHINE

    Suddenly you’re behaving right again.
    I could see those senseless & vulgar rants are absence in your comments.
    Good job!

    I’ve no problem so long as you speak your mind freely devoid of insults. Afterall that’s your right and it must be respected.

    Now lesson no 2.
    Learn to report accurately. It will make your friends cherish your opinion and make you a darling of all.

    I’ll continue to watch and make sure you continue to learn and behave.
    Good luck and thank you.

    By the way, it was reported that Alhaji Muntari, Sulley’s dad issued an apology. What exactly for?

    Let me know if you find out.

  26. Boro says:

    EI!!! BAM!!!@Akua Doris you have hit the nail right on the head regarding those three players. Some people here cannot stand the truth and when one tries to be objective. They have made their money yet they held the whole nation into ransome over just hundred thousand dollars. Had they not been called to the national team where would they have been when the best of the world are competing in Brazil? After the nation has given them exposure to rise to become stars they decided to choose money over national pride. What an ingratitude from those players!

    • Rastaman says:

      Look, but the guys were there on merit; Muntari, and Essien. Let us stop this notion that they have been where they are because of the national team. I know players who never played for their national teams, but got professional contracts, and did well. We always have this mentality in Ghana that if someone helps you, you must always be obedient, or compliant to that person. That is not right in this modern era. Travel to many civilized places and see how people stand up to their mentors, and straighten them up.

      There is something definitely wrong at the GFA, and we have to have the courage to solve that problem. I am not saying slapping people in authority is the answer, but let us not be too critical of these three guys.

      Ghana must learn to stand up against our elders, because they are not the only wise ones in the country. That is why we are where we are. Well, i rest my case. It is just unfortunate that majority of us who have never done anything for this country are quick to criticize others who are toiled on the field of play for this country. Think about it; even so many people can’t even do National service for this country when they are done with school, and yet they come on this forum and criticize athletes who sweat for this country. All of you on this forum, go and serve mother Ghana for free, and come again and let us know what you did for Ghana.

    Thank you nana adjoa it hurt me akua talked bad of patriotic citzen hu dies for his country nd some corrupt officials steels our moni

  28. Akua Doris says:

    @ Nana Adwoa

    Thanks for your beautiful contribution
    We all need these varied objective comments to form some construction opinions in these challenges times of our beloved Black Stars.

    Here’s what I gather from the various reportage.

    1. Essien & Kevin Boateng skipped the meet in Accra and joined the team in Holland;

    2. The three Amigos invited their personal therapists and forced the poor Government of Ghana to pay for their hotels and related cost;

    - the other members of the playing body were watching;

    3. Sulley & KPB brought along their better halves (against the directives) and chose to spend the nights with them.

    - the rest of the playing body continued to wonder why the special treatment.

    4. Essien was said to have refused to warm up. Why was he there then? Could he have done the same at AC Milan?

    5. Sulley was reported to have stormed Mr Armah’s room on the 3rd floor of the hotel. As he was restrained, he took his anger on the poor official phones & laptop.

    What was he doing over there?

    As you can see I have a lot of questions for you.

    Yes Coach Appiah was deficient tactically and equally disturbing was how he was coerced to drop Adam Kwarasey after he was earlier named.
    That was sheer weakness on his part.
    He totally lost control of things.

    I continue to suggest he’s replaced by a strong-will coach.

    Nevertheless, he was still the coach and until he was replaced, the players need to listen to him.

    By the way Scolari’s Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany;
    Spain lost 5-1 to Holland,

    I’m yet to read anywhere that these coaches have been ‘skinned’ alive by the players who are true seasoned and world class ones.

  29. Akua Doris says:

    @ BORO

    Thank you so much. So refreshing reading your comments.

  30. Akua Doris says:

    @ SEAN

    Sorry I missed your response to my earlier comments citing the Ronaldos, Messis & Robbens…

    You wondered if I do think before making those comparisons and duly invited me to come again.

    Here I come Sean.

    You spoke so eloquenly about the coaches of the players I mentioned.

    Here are some of the results some of the world’s renowned coaches had to show.

    Portugal lost 4-0 to Germany;
    Spain lost 5-1 to Holland
    Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany
    Brazil lost 3-0 to Holland
    Uruguay lost 3-0 to Costa Rica

    Incredible outcomes Ei! It’s call soccer. Nobody is fighting…

    These are some of the results of some of the coaches best players on the planet.

    You see I do think before making my points. I’m yet to hear that any of the Brazilian or Spanish or Portuguese players is throwing blows at their officials.

    Let me leave you with this. So far no Ghanaian delegation member is accused of financial misappropriation.

    The issue was delay in payment of appearance fees. And it was indeed paid in a fashionable way to say the least.

    Sean, you see it will be very hard to keep up with me. Come again…. I’ll be waiting patiently.

  31. ekekevor says:

    Nyantekyi,if you are truly an honest man, quit Ghana Football completely,not only the damaging committee which you misname Management Committee.We are tired of you all,the match fixing brigade.Shame,hoooooo!

  32. ekekevor says:

    As I have stated earlier, Nyantekyi and his brigade of match fixers must quit Ghana Football now.Tax payers are tired of you people.No results to show for the 3.0 million Cedis. Go now!

  33. women with brains says:

    @akua doris, that was legit. you could be my twin sister. you got brains and you just fit in. now lets teach some of these forumites how to argue constructively.

  34. kwame says:

    @Akua Doris, you are spot on, and all your comments make senses.
    Under normal camp rules, it is not up to Muntari, Essien and KPB to instill discipline, even if they are right.
    The team has a captain and a coach, all they need to do is to raise alarm to the press, or they can also report to a higher authority. But from all indication, they took laws into their hand and they were showing that they are bigger than other players, and AA was completely lost.

    The FA president makes things worse, because he is too corrupt. I think an independent task force should be set up and the truth be revealed to Ghanaians, otherwise there is no rays of light at the end of the tunnel
