I'm not interested in being GFA boss - Kwabena Yeboah

- Ace sports journalist and SWAG President, Kwabena Yeboah says he will not be the next GFA President

- According to Mr Yeboah, being the FA President is not something he is interested in

- The SWAG President believes there are more efficient and qualified people for the job

Ace sports writer and broadcaster Kwabena Yeboah has denied reports that he will be taking over as the new Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss.

According to Kwabena Yeboah who is the current President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), he does not want to become the man in charge when it comes to football in Ghana.

Reports surfaced last week following government's intention to dissolve the GFA after its president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and some leading members were caught taking bribes in Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Number 12 exposé.

Nyantakyi who was arrested and is being investigated over the matter resigned from his position as GFA President on Friday deepening the rumours that Kwabena Yeboah was going to take over.

But responding to the reports, the SWAG President explained that though he had received some calls over the matter, being the FA President was not part of his plans and he felt he should rather play a different role.

“I have heard news going round that I’ve been appointed the new FA President. I have had lots of calls in that regard.”

“It’s not something I want to do… We have different roles to play. You do not necessarily have to be the FA President to serve your nation within the footballing context," MyNewsGH reported him to have said on Accra-based Ezzy FM.

Kwabena Yeboah went ahead to suggest people he thought were capable and qualified to handle the GFA.

"There are personalities I believe, who can do it. Kudjoe Fianoo, the now GHALCA President, for me is very very efficient. George Afriyie is there he can do it.

”If they go outside the clubs, personalities like Herbert Mensah can easily do it but I do not think I’m ready for that job,” the report further quoted him as saying.
