George Afriyie rebukes Grant, media

file photoThe Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) George Akwasi Afriyie has condemned Black Stars coach, Avram Grant for using unprintable words at a post match press conference.

The Black Stars coach is reported to have used the word “bullsh**t” during the conference after Ghana played against Mozambique in African cup of Nation’s qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium.  .

Though Grant has since withdrawn the comments, he maintains that he did not regard the word as an insult as was suggested by some critics
But speaking on Onua FM Thursday Mr Afriyie said “It is unacceptable for him to use such a word publicly when there are pressmen around, it is not allowed in our society, he said.”

Meanwhile, Afriyie rebuked the media and for not properly interrogating the Black Stars coach, Avram Grant, when given the opportunity.
According to him, the media is fond of holding the GFA accountable for the activities of the coach of the senior team but lack the confidence to ask the coach salient questions about his plans for the development of the black stars.

‘’The media cannot even ask him why he was out of the country for three months and what he was doing while he was away, but they will come and ask me those questions, are they afraid of him?,” he asked.

“Media personnel at the post match interview could not ask him of what he has been doing to advance football in the country, they can’t ask him any questions but rather they keep on asking me the Vice President of the GFA about the squad Avram Grant  has invited to camp meanwhile the coach was there,’’ he added.
