Former Black Stars defender, John Paintsil, has harshly criticised the Ghana Football Association (GFA) administration amidst the public’s mourning of the late Black Stars Christian Atsu.
After the player was discovered dead under the rubble of the Turkey earthquake on Saturday, the GFA with many associated with the deceased player started to mourn.
According to John Paintsil, the GFA is characterized by an attitude of moral superiority about the issue. In his view, the Ghana FA snubbed the player when he was without a club but is now turning around to act as if there was some love for the player.
“You snubbed him and kicked him out of your Black Stars at age 31. Atsu has been struggling to get a permanent stay in a club since the snub.
“We all know the Value & Respect your club gives you when you play for your Nation.
“Don’t pretend you loved him because you don’t at all,” John Paintsil told Original FM in an interview.
Meanwhile, the remains of Christian Atsu have arrived in Ghana from Turkey. His family is set to make the necessary arrangements for his burial.
However, the government of Ghana has shown readiness for the funeral arrangement of the former Black stars player.
