Investing in Ghana football is waste - Amidaus President

Posted On Thursday, 29th November 2012

Amidaus President tears into local game

President of Amidaus Professionals Ahmed Gambo says investing in Ghana football is just a waste of scarce resources.

The head of the newly promoted side was reacting to the quality of refereeing in their 2-2 draw against Hearts of Oak on Wednesday.

The Phobians came back twice to salvage a point at the Tema Park against the Premier League minnows who have been flambouyant so far in their debut season.

But Gambo who was clearly appalled by the quality of officiating says football in Ghana is a complete waste.

“Ghana football is a waste of time, money and everything,” he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

“I don’t want to say much, I only refer authorities to watch the clip of the game and am sure they’ll agree with me in the end.

“The referee situation is just getting out of hand. In the first half we had three clear penalties but the referee failed to give it – rather looking at the linesman.

“Our striker got pass the (Hearts) goalkeeper and you could see clearly how the goalkeeper held the striker but yet still the referee waved play on.

“Ghana football is a waste. No one can convince me otherwise.”

Gambo’s comments are likely to draw the wrath of authorities as it sought to downplay the credibility of the game.

Club officials in the past have been hurled before and punished by the Ghana FA’s Ethics Committee where similar disparaging comments about the local game has been made.

It however remains to be seen if authorities will treat this case with the same seriousness and urgency it has applied to cases of similar nature.

    The man has been robbed and you are talking about ethics committee.The committee should first invite Takyi Arhin for tagging the current FA as the most corrupt in the history of GH football.

  2. Pop Man says:

    Yes it is waste because clubs like Edubiase are crying foul when they were clearly robbed at Kumasi against Kotoko just because the latter’s supporters could go rioting. Wake up GFA and educate these people smaller teams are now stronger and equally technically inclined, if not better.

  3. fenandohussien says:

    please dont compare this team to hearts
