The former Gfa top official says journalists in Ghana must be blamed after Ghana failed to have any club or player making a representation on the list of victors at the Caf awards
Former Ghana FA vice chairman, Sam Ade Coker has taken a swipe at Sports journalists in Ghana after claiming their actions contributed to a 'no Ghana show' at the Glo Caf awards staged in Accra on Thursday night.
Mr. Coker says the media in Ghana have consistently been involved in the over-hyping of footballers and that has contributed to the players lasting for only a short while.
The former chairman of Accra Great Olympics made the remarks after witnessing the Glo Caf awards in Accra where Ghana had no representation in the list of award winners.
“I feel scandalized as a Ghanaian coming to a Caf function staged on homesoil and no single Ghanaian club or player won an award.
“I blame you the media for this trend for hyping players who not deserve any mentioning.
“Go back to our golden age and compare those times to now, this is worrying.
"As writers and shakers of Ghana football, go back and do retrospection and see what has gone wrong," Ade Coker told reporters.
Ghana’s under 17 female team, the Black Maidens who won bronze at the Fifa under 17 women's world cup this year were nominated for the best national women’s team of the year but lost out to the senior women’s team of Equatorial Guinea who are African champions.
