The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced that it is set to strike a partnership with Manchester City.
The GFA said a three-man delegation, headed by president Kwesi Nyantakyi, visited the Premier League champion’s Etihad Stadium at the weekend to put the finishing touches to the agreement. Nyantakyi said the partnership will see the GFA benefit in the areas of youth development, coaching and commercial activities.
“In furtherance of the objective to improve the game here, we will be doing a collaboration with Manchester City Football Club,” said Nyantakyi, according to the GFA’s official website. “They have invited us to discuss issues of coaching, player development and the exploitation of commercial activities. We will meet their coach in charge of youth development and their staff responsible for commercial activities.”
The Ghana FA said the partnership will also see Manchester City officials visit the country with an eye towards other areas of cooperation.
