The former defender has rejected calls by a section of Ghanaians to vie for the football association's top vacant position

Former FC Koln defender Tony Baffoe has insisted that he is not ready to become the next Ghana Football Association president.
 
Following Fifa's decision to dissolve the GFA and hand former president Kwesi Nyantakyi a lifetime ban due to corrupt practices, a Normalisation Committee has been set up to run the day-to-day activities of football in the country. The interim body is expected to organise a new election after March 2019.
 
“People have been asking me when I will be vying for the next Ghana FA president. I am not interested in the position for now, although I don’t know where Allah will take me in the next two or three years," Baffoe told Happy FM.
 
"As at now, I am happy working for Caf. That’s not to say that I am turning my back on Ghana but right now, I am not interested in the role.
 
"It would be great to see an ex footballer becoming the GFA president but he must be prepared because the job won’t be easy. We need people like Abedi Pele Ayew, Yusif Chibsah and Sammy Kuffour. They understand football and they can contribute a lot to our football," he added.
 
Baffoe, aside his role at Caf as match coordinator, is the founder and secretary of Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG)
