Former president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has stated that he believes Ghanaian football has declined since his departure from the helm. Nyantakyi, who resigned from his position in 2018 after being implicated in a corruption scandal, he made this comments in a recent interview.

During his tenure as president, Nyantakyi oversaw several successes for Ghanaian football, including qualification for three consecutive World Cups and the Black Stars’ run to the quarterfinals of the 2010 tournament in South Africa. However, his tenure was also marred by allegations of corruption and mismanagement.

Nyantakyi pointed to Ghana’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia as evidence of the decline in the country’s footballing fortunes. He also cited the lack of investment in grassroots football and development programs as factors contributing to the

However, Nyantakyi’s comments suggest that he believes more needs to be done to restore Ghanaian football to its former glory.

He added that, Since 2019, we have always exited after the first round or even in the group stage. So if you draw a graph, you’d see a steep slope.

The decline of Ghanaian football has been a source of concern for fans and stakeholders in the sport. Many are hopeful that with the right leadership and investment, the Black Stars can once again become a dominant force on the African and world stage.
