The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku has revealed that call-ups for all National Teams go through processes.

He made this known in an interview with Joy Sports that has seen.

Reacting to the rumours that players are imposed on Coach C.K Akonnor, Kurt replied: “Nobody imposes players on Charles Akonnor.”

He further stated, “Call-ups for all national teams go through processes and these people [Ghanaians] must understand. Gone were those days where one person will wake up one day and there is a call-up. It will never happen again.

“The coach and his team will work with the technical directorate to pick up a squad and if they are convinced about the squad, they need to convince the management of the team about the squad.

“Finally, there will always be a meeting, some I may attend or any other I pick to attend, and when there is a consensus the squad is announced by the head trainer. This is a system that is administered everywhere in the world.”

Mr Okraku added: “If a coach wants a player, the player comes.”
