Ameenu Shardow rejects ‘Ghana Football is dead’ mantra; insists the GFA is on course

General Manager of Dreams FC, Ameenu Shardow believes the GFA is on course to revive the game despite the recent poor show by the National teams.

The Black Stars team manager says the saying of ‘Ghana football is dead’ is non-existent and should be a thing of the past.

According to him, the current managers of the game are working hard and on course to resurrect the passion of the nation.

“When we say something is dead it means the thing is non-existent. But we are still within the football ecosystem. It died some time ago but we are on course to resurrect the sport that we love,” he told 3Sports.

“Of course, the results have been poor. We have not been able to meet targets. Recently with the U-23s, we were unable to meet our target of qualifying for the Olympic Games. We’ve not qualified for the Olympics in 20 years and  this was a good opportunity.

“I was really confident in this side but unfortunately, we couldn’t make it. We’ve also had a similar situation with the U-20 team failing to qualify for the Africa Cup. The Under 17 team also failed to qualify for the Africa Cup so yes, the results have not been as we desire but What can you do? You have to keep working and make sure you correct the wrongs and continue to build until when you could get a sustained level of success and that’s what we are working toward,” he added.

Ghana failed to make it for the AFCON tournaments at the U17 and U20 levels while the Black Meteors suffered a grouo stage exit at the AFCON U23 tournament.
