Zakkour and “small boy” Nyantakyi in near fisticuffs

But for the intervention of some eminent sports administrators, there would have been fisticuffs between former Hearts of Oak Chairman Harry Zakour and the Chair of the Ghana Football Association Kwasi Nyantakyi.

The two are part of the eminent football administrators assembled by government to review Ghana’s football in a two-day forum and make recommendations.

It would appear however that the two accomplished administrators had personal scores to settle and decided to use the Premier Best Western Hotel, venue for the forum as the appropriate platform.

Zakour was reported to have made some unsavory remarks about the FA chair, accusations which Nyantakyi did not take kindly to and decided to confront Zakour about it.

The Hearts former Chairman was also unhappy with the manner in which Nyantakyi approached him fuming, gesturing and had to be held back.

It took the quick intervention of Alhaji MND Jawula, FA spokesperson, Ibrahim Sannie Daara and few other administrators to separate the two men.

The incident comes in the wake of an embarrassing first round exit by the Black Stars rocked by acts of player indiscipline which resulted in two players- Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng being suspended indefinitely.

The forum of eminent football administrators was organised to, among other things, resolve player indiscipline and other issues relating to football administration in the country.
