Former Communications Director for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and Accra Hearts of Oak, Mr. Randy Abbey, has revealed that working as the Communications Director for both institutions were the most strenuous of his career.

In an interview with Nathaniel Attoh on Joy FM's Sports Link Programme, the former Hearts of Oak spokesman made it known that It was a huge load managing the communications of the club. That notwithstanding, he believes that prepared him adequately for the GFA job.

On the GFA, he noted that, the association was always involved in one controversy or the other. This, he claims made handling communications of the association extremely difficult.

He added that a lot of people do not see him speaking for the association. So in communicating the position of the association, they misconstrue it to be his opinion.

He also divulged that he initially recommended the current spokesperson for the FA, Mr. Ibrahim Sanni Daara to the GFA because he had worked with him in the past. He noted that Mr. Daara is very good at research, and had at that time furthered his education to make him suitable for the job of managing the FA’s communication. According to him, his proposal was rejected at that time, but the FA eventually hired him for the job.

When asked what he thinks of Sanni Daara's performance, he answered that his employers would be the best people to evaluate his output because he has not really monitored him and making an evaluation of his work could be quite unfair and maybe not true to the facts.
