Abedi Pele rules himself out of Ghana FA presidency

Legend Abedi Ayew Pele says he is not interested in running for the Ghana Football Association presidency in 2019.

Incumbent Kwesi Nyantakyi has announced he will not seek re-election when his tenure comes to an end in two years time.

It is too early for prospective candidates to launch their bids but pundits expert a stern race for the job.

Abedi thinks there are knowledgeable people around to succeed Nyantakyi and expects ex-footballers to get involved.

”I think Nyantakyi has done his best and if he has got the courage to say he will not compete in 2019, it is a good one,” the three-time African Footballer of Year told the media.

”I think there are competent people in Ghana who can take over the position.

”We don’t lack intelligent people. I am not interested though but I think we have good and knowledgeable people in the game who can take over.

”I think is high time we allow ex-Footballers to take over the football administration, and allow the boxers to also take over boxing.”
