Dan Kweku Yeboah
The Normalization Committee for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has denied media reports that candidates intending to vie for the Presidential position must possess a Masters Degree qualification.
Local media reports had also claimed that the interim football governing body had asked all applicants who will aim for the GFA Executive Committee position to be minimum Bachelors Degree holders.
But spokesperson of the Normalization Committee Dan Kwaku Yeboah has debunked the claims.
”It’s not true. The [Normalization] Committee has not set any criteria of that sort. We don’t know where those reports are coming from,” he is quoted by Footballmadeinghana.com
Wherever those reports are coming from, I don’t know but what I know is that they aren’t coming from the NC.
”In any case, if the reports are attributed to any of the ad-hoc committees, that will be strange because none of those committees is supposed to set criteria for the governance of the FA.”
Despite having just about six weeks to the end of their Ghana football reforms mandate, the Normalization Committee has yet to bring out a roadmap for the elections of a new GFA president and new Executive Committee members.
Barcelona beat Sevilla in Morocco to win this season’s Supercopa de Espana
Supercopa de Espana: New four-team tournament set to be played abroad
The Supercopa de Espana – Spain’s version of the Community Shield – is set to take on a four-team format and be played abroad.
The 2018 edition between Barcelona and Sevilla was played as a one-off game in Morocco, having previously been staged over two legs in Spain.
The new proposal would see the Copa del Rey finalists and top two in La Liga meet in a four-team tournament.
Spanish football bosses hope the new format would generate more interest.
“In this way, we get the brand of the Spanish clubs to participate in a more important way,” added Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales.
RFEF bosses want to stage the first tournament this year before the start of the domestic season, though the proposals have yet to be approved.
Plans to play Girona’s home fixture against Barcelona last month in Miami were abandoned, despite La Liga signing a deal to play one fixture per season in the US.
The RFEF and players’ union (AFE) were among those who objected to the move.
