Former Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko Major Rtd Yaw Larsson has launced a book on football entitled ‘Professionalism in Ghana Football’ at the British Council.

The book, "Professionalism in Ghana Football; the Myth, Perception and Reality" seeks to uncover the myths surrounding the history of football in Ghana, how football began, the obstacles that erupted along the line and the antidotes to solving the malaise in indigenous Ghanaian football and a host of other interesting facts.

Speaking to the media at the launch of the book the ex-military man was delighted to have brought about this compilation to help the game.

“I have been in this game for thirty five years and I wanted to share what I have seen in terms of challenges and in terms of measures that is going on in other countries which can help us.”

Lamenting on the book the erstwhile Military officer said “I discussed on where we came from, schools were participating in sports, (but now) I don’t see any serious football activities in schools."

“I also talked about leadership, as a leader you should give hope to your team, club, nation and I also mentioned that you can’t deceive God, it’s what you sow that you get the result out of it.”

“It’s a very comprehensive game plan to an awareness, comparative analysis of other countries which I believe would help us.”

The author, Major Rtd. Yaw Larsson formally held the position as the Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko club, he was also a member of the GFA, GHALCA and many more.
