Veteran Football administrator Farouk Al Wahab says the coaching job of Ghana’s senior national football team the Black Stars should not be handed to an expatriate after Avram Grant’s contract run out with Ghana in february 2017.
The former management member of Accra Hearts of Oak reckons Ghana at the moment does not need a foreign coach to lead the team to what has eluded the nation for over 3 decades, which is the AFCON trophy Ghana last won in 1982.
Speaking in interview with Kumasi based Bohye FM the administrative expert reiterated there isn’t any need for the job to be handed to an expatriate football coach at the moment. “This is an established fact, we don’t need a foreign coach” he stressed.
Mr Wahab explained further the that majority of the players of the senior national football team are harnessed by local coaches at the early stages of their careers and it will be only prudent for a local coach to supervise such players at senior the national team level.
The Ghana football association on monday announced a committee headed by GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi to head hunt Avram Grant’s replacement though the federation has opened application for qualified coaches.
