According to Citi Sports, the former Juventus star says he has enough experience, knowledge and qualities to become GFA President.

Appiah opined that football must be led or run by people who have played the game and know how things are done.

Some of us are having meetings and we are thinking about a lot of things. When you go to Europe football is run by footballers.


“We are still learning and watching whatever is going on so when we come we don’t make the same mistakes,” he said.

Appiah could however, not state when he intends to join the administration of football in GHANA.

His comments come at a time when the Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association have set October 25, 2019 as the day when a new President will be elected.

The race to elect a new FA president is expected to be keenly contested.

So far, former GFA Vice Presidents Fred Pappoe and George Afriyie have officially confirmed their bid to run.
