‘May God have mercy on them all’ – Rev Osei Kofi pleads for critics

Rev. Osei Kofi says all he is interested in is the betterment of Ghana football

Ghanaian Football legend, Reverend Osei Kofi has expressed his displeasure at how verbally he was assaulted by some individuals, not long ago, as a member of the Interim Committee set up by government to manage football in the country.

The former Black Stars and Kotoko player, alleged that during their work as the Interim Committee, some individuals from the football fraternity verbally assaulted him without any cause.

“May God have mercy on them all! We’re all here in Ghana, we shall see!; whether honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD God is giving you works or not,” he stated on a sports programme The Probe monitored, on Peace FM on Thursday, September 13.

According to Reverend Osei Kofi, all he is interested in is the betterment of Ghana football, but some persons took the chance to malign him unjustifiably.

He also stated that the four-member Normalisation Committee which was unveiled last Thursday, to run Ghana football for the next six months, has a very difficult task on their hands because some people are keenly waiting for the league to kick start.

He, therefore, advised that other members who will be added to the committee should be be added as soon as possible so they can work efficiently because the extent football has disintegrated in the country is alarming.

“The extent it has disintegrated; with all that’s going on…. It has disintegrated for a long time now… The defeat of Black Stars which is being blamed on Kwasi Appiah! It’s been rotten for long.

“If it had not happened like that how would we have known that things have gone bad?,” Osei Kofi asked.

Reverend Osei Kofi’s comments came after the work of the Interim Committee ended as FIFA’s Normalisation Committee took over affairs on Thursday.

The CAF/FIFA liaison team head, Dr Kofi Amoah chairs the Normalisation Committee with Lucy Quist, former Airtel CEO, as his deputy.

The other members are former Kotoko Board member, Lawyer Duah Adonteng and Naa Odofoley Nortey.

Some other persons are expected to join the committee later.
