“When I heard the news I didn’t want to believe it. I met Jawula because of football and his contribution to Ghana football you cannot measure it,” Nana Fitz told GhanaWeb Sports.
He added, “the man was firm, he knew what he wanted and at least he was trying to change the whole system with the help of FIFA. If you know Jawula, we should tap into his knowledge.
