Speaking on condition of anonymity, the player said one year after the constitution establishing the association was adopted, nothing has been done to create the body which is to be the platform, the voice and the vote of the key important stakeholders in football.
Asked if the onus is not on the players themselves to set up their own association, he replied that as a new development in the country’s football structures, the administrators should be the ones who should help the players to set it up.
Meanwhile, at least one of the presidential candidates in Saturday’s elections has said his team will help set up the players association. The association is entitled to 2 votes under the current GFF constitution. But without its establishment the national players are not enfranchised for Saturday’s vote. This now leaves the GFF with 51 on the electoral roll.
In his reaction former GFF vice president Buba ‘Star’ Janneh, said his administration had held two executive meetings on the matter and formed a sub-committee to implement the establishment of this association. However, the plans were forestalled by the acrimonious developments currently embroiling Gambian football.]]>
