Nyantakyi to announce Man City deal



Kwesi Nyantakyi will confirm news broken by supersport.com a month ago about the Ghana FA's new coaching deal with Manchester City. The FA had strenuously denied the links at the time, but are expected to confirm it to the world's media on Thursday afternoon.

The details are that the English Premier League champions and the GFA will have a mutually beneficial relationship as they tap into the strengths of each other. Supersport.com understands that the deal is among a series of groundbreaking deals the FA seeks to sign in an ambitious bid to leverage the country's growing football brand to plug holes in its own expertise.

Manchester City's win of the English elite league last season came on the back of an increase in scientific techniques in coaching and administration, and the Ghana FA has identified the club's resources as good for its own ailing systems.

Beyond that, the FA will be looking at exchange programmes for coaches, referees and administrators in Ghana. For the Citizens, Ghana's vaunted talent pool will be open to them, on mutually agreed terms, for them to tap into for their academy.

At the media briefing, slated for 1600 GMT, Nyantakyi - who will be in England in the coming week to finalize things with City - is also expected to outline details of the Black Stars preparation for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations as well as other key issues concerning Ghana football.

In August, the Ghana FA reached a cooperation deal with their Chinese counterparts to further develop football in both countries, with the Ghana helping in their youth football while the Asians prop Ghana in women's football.
