Former Minister of Youth and Sports, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has joined calls for Black Stars coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, to be sacked after the defeat to South Africa.
The outspoken politician says the decision to sack the coach has delayed, insisting a radical approach is needed at the top hierarchy of Ghana football.
In an interview with Starr FM, Nii Lante, believes the blame is being shifted away from the coach just for people to get their players into the team.
"I hear CK isn't the only problem. People are pushing for their players to be in the team. In middle of World Cup Qualifiers, isn't time to change Coach. Me? If I was GFA Boss, I'm radical. I'll sack technical team, not CK alone," he said on the Morning Starr show.

"From what I hear, the coach is not the only problem. You have a system where people are pushing for their players to be in the team," he added.

The Black Stars struggled to beat Ethiopia in Cape Coast last week, before surrendin g to a late defeat to South Africa on Monday.
The team has dropped to second place in Group G of the qualifiers and are in jeopardy of missing another World Cup.
