Owner and Financier of King Faisal, Alhaji Abdul Karim Grunsah has disclosed today that he has plans to stand for the position for the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Now that the top position has been declared vacant, Alhaji Grusah who has been fighting with the system for years has reiterated his desire to give it a go again for a position he once wanted to occupy but could not succeed.
Barely 24 hours after Government released a statement declaring its intentions to dissolve the GFA, Alhaji Grusah is confident this is the right time for him to make his intentions known.
The Minister for Youth and Sports, Honorable Isaac Asiamah yesterday also backed the release from the Information Ministry and confirmed the dissolution of the football Governing body to several Radio Stations in the Country.
The government took the decision to dissolve the GFA after the premiere of the Number 12 Documentary by investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The documentary which exposes the rot in Ghana Football seemed to have pushed the Government to the wall so much that the decision had to be made even though Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) rules does not allow for the interference of Government into the association
The bankroller of King Faisal whiles being interviewed on Asempa FM further stated that He has heard news from a whistleblower that he is not willing to name that Government is planning to bring in someone to serve as an interim boss of the FA.
He argues that Club administrators will not allow for Government to appoint someone to become the FA boss because they have the people to take the Association through the restructuring process.
He strongly believes that there are a lot of competent people who can make sports in Ghana better.
