Ghana Football Association (GFA) Technical Director, Bernhard Lippert, has slammed the negative actions and narratives by Ghanaians and fingered these traits as issues affecting the GFA’s activities.
He delivered this harsh verdict in his speech during the launch of the Ghana Football Association philosophy (DNA) by the GFA to define Ghanaian football.
The Ghana Football DNA will be the coaching and playing philosophy of Ghana Football and was put together over a two year period with the process starting in the wake of Lippert’s appointment in 2020.
The Ghana Football Philosophy is to identify “how we play, the current trends in football, our strengths and weaknesses, and an implementation plan to get to where we want to be with our game.”
However, the German football technician believes a positive attitude from Ghanaians is key to ensure this philosophy is implemented right.
“One of the biggest challenges especially for our GFA is a lot of negativity here in the country. I will beg all stakeholders to implement such a thing like this to help each other to be positive. Media people there is too much negativity. Give solutions, be positive, work together…we have to come closer together to get these things done’ Lippert said.
Lippert’s message echoed GFA President Kurt Okraku’s speech delivered at the 29th Ordinary Congress held in Kumasi recently.
