According to various reports in the local media, former Black Stars goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey will return to the senior national team as the new goalkeeper coach.
Kwarasey, who has 13 years of football experience, began his professional career in 2007 with Strømsgodset and ended it in 2020 after three years with Vålerenga.
The Black Stars’ new head coach, Chris Hughton, has already started an overhaul of his technical team, with veteran goalkeeper Richard Kingson being asked to step down as the goalkeeper trainer. It is speculated that Kwarasey has been contacted and will arrive in Ghana soon to prepare for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers with the team, which is set to regroup in a few weeks.
Kwarasey, who is of Ghanaian descent but was born in Norway, made his debut for the Black Stars in 2011 against Swaziland in the 2012 AFCON qualifiers. He gained the trust of Ghanaians with a stupendous display against Brazil in London a few days later. He was Ghana’s first-choice goalkeeper at the 2012 AFCON in Gabon/Equatorial Guinea but lost his position to Fatawu Dauda at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and never returned to the team after that.
Ghana is scheduled to play Angola in a double header later this month in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.
