“I do not have anything against anybody but I’m a very passionate person and as you can see I’m a very busy man, and I don’t have time for all of this, but he [Thunder] must understand that Ghana Football existed before they came into being, if everybody went to register like will he [Thunder] come to meet Ghana football,” he told Ohene Bampoe-Brenya on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports.

“Let people understand that way back in 1996 I was asked to come and run Ghana Football but I decided against it, I wasn’t interested in it because there was an inbuilt conflict of interest in football that’s why I chose to join boxing, so let them know. Where were those people by then?”

“I’m not too sure even Kwesi Nyantakyi had finished Law School at that time, that’s how long some of us would have been involved in founding Ghana football so if they don’t know they should find out.”

“There is no emotion I’m just passionate. I’m passionate because Ghana football deserves better, a country that have won laurels on four occasions in terms of the AFCON and since 1982 we have never won anything, are you happy? Look at the way we are running our football league, referees putting money in their socks, is it better, so if anybody says I’m being personal I don’t understand it”.
