Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwasi Nyantakyi says it is wrong to impose players on national team coaches.
Speaking on GTV Sports+ Saving Our Passion show, the former FIFA council member noted that, the judgment of professionals like coaches should be respected.
“It is very important for us to know that coaches are professionals just like any other professional you may engage to work for you, a surveyor, an architect, a teacher, an engineer or even a doctor,” he said in an interview with GTV.
“And when you employ any of them you do not tell the person how to do the work because once the person is certificated to do the work, it is presumed that he has deep knowledge and experience in the work and can perform satisfactorily to achieve the set objectives.
He added that “it is unprofessional for anyone to tell a coach to recruit a player and field him in a game, however, there is nothing wrong for anybody to suggest that a certain player is good and that the coach should look at him but it is wrong for a management committee to allocate to themselves players per member in the team.
“The final decision should always rest with the coach and anything that compromises his independence and decision-making is interference and must be resisted,” started.
