Veteran football administrator and owner of Division one league side King Faisal Alhaji Karim Grusah has advised the Ghana Football Association ]GFA] to extend the Israeli contract if he win the ongoing Cup of Nations in Gabon.
The Black Stars are in the semi-final of the tournament and must beat Cameroon to reach a second successive final under Avram Grant.
The 2008 UEFA champions league finalist’s initial 18-month contract expires at the end of the month and it looks he would not be handed an extension.
Though a session of Ghanaian football lovers have kicked against the nation’s football governing body ]GFA] to give Grant a fresh deal after the tourney, Grusah says the expatriate trainer should be asked to continue his job if he wins the Black Stars their fifth continental trophy.
”I don’t watch performance in football I am only interested in the results,” Grusah told Accra based Asempa FM.
”Watching the Congolese against the Black Stars yesterday, it was very obvious they were better than us but we were able to defeat them.
”But in football it is win, lose or draw but personally I don’t like the attitude of Avram Grant so he better continue to win because you can’t understand how he works.
”He is not a confident coach to my liking but if he is able to win the trophy I will plead with the FA to award him one or two year’s contract.
”We gave him two years contract to win the AFCON and in his first year he was able to send us to the finals in Equatorial Guinea so if he is able to win the ultimate this time around in Gabon, we should let him stay. When we are able to win the trophy, it is under Avram Grant.” The veteran football administrator added,
