The group Chief Executive Officer of Databank, Kojo Addae-Mensah has said that it will be better if the Black Stars of Ghana do not qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Addae-Mensah who also doubles as a football pundit affirmed that football in Ghana is on the decline and measures need to be put in place to resuscitate it. He cited that both the FA and government should take up this task.
He also implied that Ghana football needs a long-term plan, however, things will turn out to be more complicated If Ghana qualifies for Qatar 2022 because all attention will be directed towards the world cup preparations.
I wish we don’t qualify for the World Cup because if we do, we will suddenly forget all our problems”, he stated on Accra-based Happy FM.
“For the next four years, if we don’t even qualify for the World Cup or even win the AFCON and we make progress in solving our issues, I’m sure we will all be happy.”
The Databank Group CEO went ahead to urge the current Ghana FA to develop a solid plan for Ghana football.
“We need a president who can develop a blue print for us that will be a legacy for him in some years to come, just like how we attributed some of the success we chalked to Ben Kuofie.”
