The Premier League Board has directed that a minute’s silence should be observed before kick-off at all First Capital Plus Premier League match venues as a mark of respect to the former Ghana coach and player Nana Charles Kumi Gyamfi who passed away on Wednesday.
The legendary C.K. Gyamfi was the first African footballer to play in Germany, when he joined Fortuna Dusseldorf in 1960. He also played for both Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
As a coach, he successfully coached the Black Stars to three African Cup of Nations titles (1963, 1965 & 1982) which makes him one of the most successful African coaches.
In recognition of the passing away of the ex footballer and national team coach, all premier players are also expected to put on black armbands during the weekend’s Premier League matches.
