Jon Benjamin Wants To See More Grassroots Pitches

Jon Benjamin Wants To See More Grassroots Pitches

Jon Benjamin, the British High Commissioner to Ghana says he is yet to witness the benefits from Ghana's participation at several Fifa World Cup tournaments.

The affable diplomat, who has been in Ghana for close to two years after he arrived from Chile claims the financial gains from participating in three World Cup tournaments should have been used to develop good pitches for grassroots football rather than spending them on expensive SUV cars.

A bemused Benjamin, did not only asks questions as to how the Ghana FA spent the money accrued, but also questioned Nyantakyi's double standard in the recent Fifa turmoil which has led to the suspension of several high profile members including president Sepp Blatter.

Ghana has since making her debut appearance in the World Cup in 2006, appeared in all FIFA world cups; nearly had a semi-final berth at the South Africa 2010 but a disappointing campaign in 2014 whose circumstances called for a Justice Dzamefe Commission of inquiry by the government.
