President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi has been appointed by FIFA to mediate in the Football crisis in Kenya that is threatening to cripple the game in the country.
Top football Clubs are in crisis after two groups proposed rival premier Leagues with conflicting competition.
At present, Kenya Premier League (KPL) has 16 teams, and has resisted expansion plans to 18 teams put forward by the national organizing body, Football Kenya Football (FKF).
With both groups organizing separate fixtures involving the same teams, fans fear teams may be forced to choose either League due to competing games which has forced FIFA to appoint Nyantakyi to help solve the problem.
“Am a member of the association’s committee of FIFA and in that capacity we receive information on the happenings of all the football associations across the World,” Nyantakyi said.
“The Kenyan problem has come before us several times and I have demonstrated immense experience and expertise addressing the issue that emanate from the football association’s and in particular Kenya so the committee in the FIFA set-up felt that in view of the extensive experience and expertise I have in football management in Africa, I could do something to bring that to bare the problems in Kenya.”
