Ghana FA President Slams Bafana and SAFA- This is the Worst South African Team I have Seen

The President of Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okraku has slammed the south African Football Association (SAFA).

Following the controversial win of Ghana against Bafana Bafana on Sunday in the 2022 FIFA world cup qualifiers, SAFA has taken the issue to the world football governing body, FIFA.

SAFA are accusing the senegalese referee Maguette N’Diaye who was in charge of that particular encounter for match manipulation.

On Wednesday the FIFA responded that they have received the letter of Bafana regarding the Ghana game as confirmed by SAFA president Dr. Danny Jordaan and CEO Tebogo.

In a letter FIFA confirmed that the final decision will come on 23rd November after the issue has been discussed by its disciplinary committee (DC).

FIFA also confirmed that they will be waiting for the response of GTA regarding the matter.

On Thursday the GFA responded with a lengthy letter that accused the SAFA of basing the protest to FIFA on a mountain of lies.

GFA also claimed that they will submit their own documents to FIFA regarding the ongoing Bafana protest.

However Okraku decided to worsen the already threatened relationship between Ghana and South Africa.

Okraku said he feels that South Africa are disrespecting a powerful football country like Ghana.

"This is the worst South African team I have seen in the last five years and they do not deserve to qualify," he said.

He added that he hates the attitude that South Africa has and they are so disrespectful about the quality that Ghana has in their country.

He concluded that it is not right for people to disrespect a powerful football nation like Ghana and that must not happen again.

As things stand Ghana have qualified for the playoffs of 2022 FIFA World Cup and they will come up against any team that has qualified for the next round of the qualifiers.
