George Afriyie sacked as GFA Vice President

George Afriyie has been relieved of his duties as the Vice President of the Ghana Football Association

The decision was made following an Executive Committee meeting on Tuesday.

The news which was announced on the official Twitter page of the football governing body in Ghana did not indicate the reason behind the sack.


It would be recalled that George Afriyie declared his intention to contest for the 2019 GFA Presidential election last month and it is understood that fueled the tension between the director of Liberty Professionals and his boss Kwesi Nyantakyi.

George Afriyie and Kwesi Nyantakyi have not been in good terms after a text message from the former Gt. Olympics CEO to the GFA boss accused him of being greedy was leaked.

In 2015, Kwesi Nyantakyi appointed George Afriyie as the Vice President of the GFA in his third term as President of the association.

The bankroller of Wa All Stars who on three different platforms announced his intention not to seek re-election as President of the Ghana Football Association, seems to have a change of mind and is likely to go neck to neck with his lieutenant in the run for 2019 GFA Presidential election.
