“Kurt Okraku and his administration doing well but still behind time” – Harry Zakour 


Former Accra Hearts of Chairman Harry Zakour says the current administration of the Ghana Football Association led by Kurt Okraku are doing well but are still lagging behind time.

The astute football administrator believes this as a result of some precedents that transpired during the erstwhile administration led by Kwesi Nyantakyi who has been banned from football.

Kurt Okraku was voted as President of the GFA back in 2019 during a GFA Electoral Congress which saw other 11 persons elected as Executive Council members.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Sportsnetgh TV on YouTube, Harry Zakour said the new administration are putting up their best despite the numerous challenges they face.

In the interview, he recounted how his utterances on the decline of Ghana football got him some enemies at the FA including then Chairman and President of the FA, Kwesi Nyantakyi. 

” I think from Kwesi Nyantakyi’s time as President of the FA, I said that the football was going down and people were not happy with what I said. 

“I remember I got into a fight with him [Kwesi Nyantakyi] and Alhaji Grusah intervened so I decided to stop talking because I realized I was bringing enemies into myself.

“If you look at today’s management, they are doing well but they are still behind time.”

It was under his watch that Hearts of Oak won the famous CAF Champions League in 2000 amongst other laurels.
