Veteran Ghanaian coach JE Sarpong is convinced Ghana Football Association technical director Francis Oti Akenteng is the bane of coaching in the country and wants him ousted.

 Sarpong is incensed with the work ethic of the long-standing technical chief of the federation, accusing him of engaging in cronyism and nepotism.

 "Oti Akenteng is the bane of coaching in Ghana. I am saying it today. I don't care about the consequences. I will say it," he fumed on local radio station Asempa FM

 "Many of the coaches are not bold to say this. But they tell us all the time. He is the cause of the coaching problems in Ghana.

 "Now that there is Normalisation, what is his role at the FA? Some coaches have been assistant for over 10 years. And they have remained so. Why?” he quizzed.

 "It's all about cronyism and nepotism and you have to heap the blame on Oti."

 Oti Akenteng has been in charge of the technical directorate of the GFA for almost a decade. His role sees all the national team coaches report to him.

JE Sarpong has a wealth of experience in coaching, having managed several clubs including Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
