Former Ghana international, Mohammed Polo has claimed no coach on the scene can fill in the shoes of Charles Kwablan Akonnor as head coach of the Black Stars.
Akonnor was shown the exit on Monday after a series of bad performances which has seen criticisms leveled against him. The former Asante Kotoko manager handled 10 games as the gaffer of the senior national team and could only pick four wins during that time.
However, the dribbling magician believes there are no quality indigenous coaches whose name could pop up take up the coaching role at the national team following the sacking coach Akonnor despite the widely reported suggestions of the current government preferring a local coach to be in the dugouts.
“We are having a problem because we are not developing our coaches. The FA doesn’t have any criteria for the development processes” Polo told Kumasi based OTEC FM
“Who is coming on board if we decide to go for in for another local coach? He asked
“We have some to tell them [GFA} should they bring in any foreign coach and he fails. You should empower your local coaches. We need to go deeper, what is happening goes deeper than what we are seeing,” he concluded.
While they have been no favorites names at the moment, personalities such as Ibrahim Tanko, Otto Addo and Kwesi Appiah have been linked with the vacant role as the search for a new head coach continues.
