The Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako says that he is not surprised George Afriyie lost in last Friday’s GFA presidential elections.
According to him when it comes to football elections there is nothing like assurances as in football almost everyone is everybody’s friend so no one will tell you I won’t vote for you.
“There is nothing like assurance when it comes to football elections, we are all friends, so it will be very hard for a delegate to tell you in the face that, Iâ€™m not going to vote for you, only a few, everybody will assure you of their vote but thatâ€™s where â€˜fearâ€™ â€˜delegatesâ€™ comes in,” he told Atinka FM.
Before the elections, most pundits tipped George Afriyie as the obvious winner but he ended up losing woefully.
George Amoako whose club Kotoko declared support for George Afriyie was on a coalition course with his club as he supported Kurt Okraku who emerged as the eventual winner.
“Iâ€™m not surprised George Afriyie lost most people tipped him to win but you see the â€˜fearâ€™ â€˜delegatesâ€™ slogan, thatâ€™s what happened.
“Where the word â€˜fearâ€™ â€˜delegatesâ€™ really exists in football politics and elections,â€ he emphasized.
