The Ghana FA will over the weekend firm up a partnership agreement with Manchester City Football Club.

The agreement’s duration though yet to be announced will basically see Ghana benefit immensely in areas of youth development, coaching and commerce.

“In furtherance of the objective to improve the game here, we will be doing a collaboration with Manchester  City Football Club,” Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi told a media briefing on Thursday.

“It is because of the enormous or the immense benefits that such a collaboration will offer the football association.

“As you are no doubt aware, Manchester City is one of the biggest brands in the world today.

“They have a lot of facilities and opportunities that a football association from Africa can gain a lot from.

“This includes the area of coaching, we are looking at the situation where our coaches will get to go there on attachment and also bring coaches here to share experiences.

“We are also looking at player developments so now or in the future they can come back to contribute to our national teams.

“We also look to benefit from commercial activities where we want to leverage their commercial strengths and then use the links they have in sponsorships.”

Nyantakyi will be joined by coach Akwasi Appiah and Communications Director Ibrahim Sannie Daara for the trip to Manchester on Saturday.

    very disappointed

  2. KT says:

    How? This should be an inter-club thing. A whole FA? After destroying your own league system, you beg from richer clubs elsewhere, in the name of partnership. This means the player exodus issue is not stopping, because it means Man City can get our players anytime. Its good for the pockets, but bad for our future

    • TT says:

      It’s very good business, many nations in Africa can only dream of this opportunity. How countries in Africa could land a deal of this nature?. Many things goes into this: out talent pool is without a rival in Africa but player mismanagement has always been the bane. Many quality talents have gone to waste. It is time to harness all that we have for quality productivity.

    • Kay says:

      Ghanaian players are all over the planet, it’s just a matter of time we start to dominate African football again. As TT said the problem has always been a player management, so with this deal our players would play in better league.
      My only problem is our constant failure to invest in a world class coach for at least five years.
