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 it.
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.
