Ghana football will be revived under my administration – Kurt Okraku pledges



Kurt Okraku, the president of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], says he is the right man to lead the country’s football governing body to the promised land.

The former Dreams FC Executive Chairman replaced Kwesi Nyantakyi as the FA President in October 2019 beating George Afriyie, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Amanda Clinton and Fred Pappoe for the seat.

With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the FA’s plans of securing sponsorships and reviving football have been left in doubt.

But, according to Mr Okraku, he and the Executive Council are determined to achieve their mandate before leaving office.

“On October 25, 2019, Congress gave us the power to manage Ghana football for the next four years and the Executive Council is committed to deliver to the task and over the last 10 months, we have demonstrated that we have the energy level and idea level to take Ghana to the promised land but we will need the support and prayers from the public,” he told ‘Agro Ne Fom’ on Adom TV.

“Football is a team sport and no one can do it alone so we will need the support of everyone to deliver the task but I am positive about Ghana football. We stay together as a unit just like we are demanding from the team, we will surely be victorious,” he said.

He further called for support in helping to restore the passion of the nation.

“Let’s continue to be supportive of our football, the Football Association and all our national teams because next month will be tough for us a country,” he added.

Bartomeu finally resigns as Barcelona president



Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned, with the entire board also stepping down from their posts.

Bartomeu’s decision comes after several months of criticism in the wake of Barcelona’s 8-2 Champions League elimination to Bayern Munich, as well as Lionel Messi’s shock request to leave the club shortly after.

Although the club was able to keep hold of Messi, with the longtime Barca star staying to avoid having to take the club to court, Bartomeu’s position has been under scrutiny for months.

The president had been due to officially end his tenure next year, with elections called for March, but the club’s members called for a vote of no confidence in an effort to get Bartomeu out immediately.

A total of 20,687 votes were gathered for the motion against Bartomeu, passing the threshold of 16,250 signatures required for the vote to go ahead.

The Barca board repeatedly tried to postpone the vote but, on Monday, local authorities rejected the club’s push to delay the proceedings.

As a result, the vote was set to go ahead in the coming weeks, but will no longer be necessary as Bartomeu and the board have stepped down.

Bartomeu originally joined Barca during Joan Laporta’s presidency and ascended to that role himself in January 2014.

He replaced Sandro Rosell, becoming the 40th President of Barcelona as he signed on to complete the rest of Rosell’s tenure following his resignation.

During his time in charge, Barca won La Liga four times as well as the 2014-15 Champions League, but his time in charge will largely be defined by the club’s failings in his final seasons.

Having struggled to find value in the transfer market since Neymar’s departure to join Paris Saint-Germain, Barca finished the 2019-20 season trophyless.

Their 8-2 loss to Bayern only furthered unrest, with Messi’s request to leave proving the final straw for the president.
