Kwesi Nyantakyi was an angel sent to help Ghana Football but we killed him less than 48 hours – Asamoah Gyan
The General Captain of the Black Stars has eulogized the former Ghana Football Association President Kwasi Nyantakyi.
Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan believes that the ex-CAF 1st vice president, Kwasi Nyantakyi was like an angel sent to help Ghana Football.
According to the 33-year-old, Mr. Nyantakyi’s corruption saga was mishandled by Ghanaians and stated he was unfairly treated by his own people.
Mr. Kwasi Nyantakyi has been handed a lifetime ban by FIFA after being caught taking bribe in a video exposé compiled by Ghanaian Investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“He [Kwasi Nyantakyi] was like an angel sent to help Ghana Football. Let’s look at the peak he elevated our game to the world,” Gyan told Joy FM
”The man was mishandled and treated unfairly by Ghanaians after the so called video exposé. We should have opened an in-depth investigation into the matter”
“I have worked with him for several years and In know the kind of person, I am talking about today. He rose the highest level of world football to become Caf first-vice president and a Fifa Executive Council Member but we used less than 48 hours to bring him down.”
“Our football hasn’t been better since Kwasi Nyantakyi absence. It’s very sad. Whether we like it or not, Ghana made the three appearances at the FIFA World Cup because of him”
