The conceit that bruised the Ghana football Normalization Committee’s relationship with premier league clubs sought to prolong the dry spell on Ghana’s domestic football scene.
Having been put in temporary charge of the running of Ghana football , members of the Normalization Committee (NC) set of on a pitch of haughtiness with an accompanying body language that many football club owners felt was disrespectful and belittling .
Lawyer Duah Adonteng’s harsh exchange with veteran sports journalist Ekow Asmah, after the media man questioned his lateness to a meeting typified the arrogance that irritated football people when the Normalization committee started its work.
Football administrators set out to demand respect from the NC, insisting that clubs wielded the real power in football and not just a table of men and women who were put together by a couple of appointments.
Until the recent change in posture by the NC after premier league clubs unified against what they deemed unsatisfactory treatment by the committee, prompting a lowering of egos ,it is fair to say, there would have been no headway for the Special Normalization Cup that started last weekend to have commenced.
