The Ghana Football Association [GFA] has indicated that Maxwell Konadu, Nasam Yakubu, Prof. J.K Mintah and other members who constitute the current backroom team of the Black Stars will maintain their respective roles when a new Black Stars coach is appointed.
Communications Direction of the federation, Ibrahim Sannie Daara explains the FA decision to maintain its policy of making the Black Stars coach work with an already established backroom made of local trainers.
He further added that in case an expatriate is named the FA won’t allow him to bring in hi own backroom staffs. .
“It is a stated policy in this country that getting a foreign coach doesn’t end there. We must also have a policy that if we are bringing a highly experienced foreign coach, the local persons must also be able to learn something from him.
“If it is a foreign coach we are choosing, I don’t think we will depart from that. We would want to have a local person assist him and same applies to the local coach in that, we’ve got a set backroom staff that he will be working with,” Sannie Daara told GHOne TV Sports.
“Otherwise, it will look as if we are only interested in empowering or giving the job to foreigners without any recourse for local coaches who might also learn then when they have the opportunity in the future, they can also show us what they can do,” he added.
The Committee tasked to search for a new Black Stars head coach has set Friday 10th March, 2017, 5pm as the final deadline for the submission of applications for the job.
