Wilfred Osei Kwaku, says he is not currently thinking about becoming the next Ghana Football Associationu (GFA) president.

The Tema Youth owner was disqualified from contesting the 2019 GFA presidential elections by the Normalisation Committee (NC) for failing an integrity check.

One was his failure to pay the 10% mandatory fee to the GFA following the transfer of his player Joseph Paintsil to Hungarian side Ferencvárosi TC.

However, he did not rule out contesting for the position in future.

“I am not thinking about it now [being the FA president]. The rank and file came to me previously to tell me that I have the qualities to become the president so if they tell me to stand again, I will do it,” Palmer told Asempa FM.

“Another thing is, Kurt Okraku is already in the running. If I announce that I want to be FA President, it will put pressure on him.

He is challenging the NC decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)

He confirmed that he paid $49,000 for the case to be heard.

“The disqualification was far from fair that is why the case is at CAS. I sold a player outside the jurisdiction of Ghana. Joseph Paintsil was never a registered player under the jurisdiction of Ghana. He was never registered under Tema Youth. I had economic rights over him.”
