Former Ghana international Michael Osei believes that the Black Stars job should be given to a local coach.
“Yes… I believe a local coach is capable of handling the Black Stars, I’m very optimistic about that”, Michael Osei told Kumasi-based Wontumi Radio.
“Some of us [local coaches] have played at the highest level before entering into coaching and we understand the game very well. We returned to help our football with the knowledge that we have gotten despite the low facilities in this country. There are coaches like Ibrahim Tanko and others who are technically astute to handle the Black Stars and I think we should be given that opportunity.
“There is a perception that the Black Stars players have no respect for local coaches but I think that’s not true. There are local coaches who played top-level football like Odartey Lamptey, Ibrahim Tanko and others and therefore I don’t think a Black Stars player will disrespect a coach because he is not an expatriate”, he added.
