The former communications director of the association has advised the country's two top football officials to put an end to their public exchanges

Former Ghana Football Association director of communications Randy Abbey has called on the association's president Kwesi Nyantakyi and league clubs association’s chief Kudjoe Fianoo to end their war of words in public.

Fianoo aimed a dig at Nyantakyi last week, following the postponement of Ghana Premier League due to an injunction from Great Olympics, insisting that Nyantakyi's duties at Fifa and Caf are affecting domestic football while the latter labelled him as a ''small mind''.

“I think that kind of thing deepens the cracks in the football association and I think that Mr Fianoo despite being upset about the state of affairs in our football perhaps could have used a better adjective to make his point than saying that the GFA President travels more than a pilot,'' Abbey told Joy FM.

''However, I also think in responding to Mr Fianoo, Nyantakyi went overboard and the use of words such as small minds and all that was unnecessary. 

"Also I find Nyantakyi’s post a bit contradictory because he claims small minds discuss people and yet in the final paragraph of his Facebook post which I read he ends up talking about Fianoo,” he added.

However, Abbey reiterated his desire to see changes at the football association during the 2019 general elections.

''The fact that some years back I said calls for Nyantakyi to step down is not feasible and today I think that the results suggest we need a new direction so I shouldn't say that? I can’t get the logic. The football association needs new faces'' he said.
