General Manager of Accra Great Olympics, Oluboi
Commodore has commended the Normalization Committee for introducing a special
tournament to keep the club active; but has condemned the regulations governing
According to Oluboi, the money involved in the
competition is nothing to write home about and also, the committee lack
transparency since they weren’t able to declare before the clubs the source of
the money to take care of the competition.
“I was expecting that, they tell us maybe government
or a certain source has given us for example one million dollars and since the
competition involve 64 clubs, we [the normalization committee] have set aside
maybe 70 or 50% for administrative purposes but there was nothing of that sort;
even with the source of the money, we pressed them before they said it is from
the government. It is not good” he said.
The General Manager of the Division one club further
added that, it is not in any regulation that, only premier league clubs are
eligible to play in the CAF Champions League but rather, any club that wins a
national tournament only the Ghana Football Association (GFA) declare that
tournament as a national competition.
