Former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has expressed his confidence that football in the country will rise again despite recent struggles.

Football in the West African country has faced several challenges in recent years with Black Stars suffering a back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) group phase elimination.

The poor performance of the team led to several people calling for the head of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

However, Nyanktakyi, who says he has no interest in working at the GFA anymore, believes things can get better.

"Ghana football will be great again," said Nyantakyi speaking on Onua TV. "Wherever I am heading, I will contribute my knowledge and wisdom to help the GFA to restore things as they were before.

"I am a former president so I am an insider at the GFA. I was the president for 13 years and before that, I was an Executive Council member so I know things very well.

"Also on the African continent and on the world stage, I know a lot of people and know a lot of ways to get results.

"So wherever I find myself and see the opportunity to help with the knowledge I have to get our football to develop or sports as a whole, I will."

Nyantakyi served as the President of the Association between 2005 and 2018 before he was banned from football-related issues due to Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Number 12 expose.
