Former Ghana FA veep, Fred Pappoe insists he personally decided to move away from mainstream football administration and not that he was “pushed out” as speculated.
The astute administrator occupied several top positions in some time past including being the management chairman of the senior national team, the Black Stars, CHAN team as well as serving on the Executive Committee of the Ghana FA.
Mr. Pappoe has relinquished all the positions he held at the country’s football governing body to concentrate on his executive post for Ghana Premier League side, Great Olympics, he explained on Wednesday’s edition of Agoo TV’s Dwidwamu Sports hosted by Adam Adjei.
“I occupied a number of positions… Until recently, I was the Chairman of the Match Review Panel. I think I occupied the position for about two or three years…
“[When people see me they], always says I’m missing in action but I understand them because I took a bit of a backstage when I decided not to contest for the Executive Committee.
He continued: “It takes you from the limelight which was something I wanted. I needed a bit of rest from the shine all over the place and it has been peaceful so far. I wasn’t pushed out
Fred Pappoe further said: I’m still very much active in football; I’ve been following a lot of development on the football scene. What I’m doing now is concentrating a lot on Accra Great Olympics which is my club.”
