Ghanaian coach Abdul Faisal Chibsah has been appointed as the Academy Head of Recruitment for Major League Soccer club Charlotte FC.
Charlotte FC said in a statement on their website which was sighted by YEN.com.gh that Chibsah joins them as its new Academy Head of Recruitment, bringing exceptional experience in talent identification, data analysis and team administration—from grassroots to professional level.
Academy Manager Dan Lock said in a statement that they are happy with the capture of Chibsah as it gives the club an advantage.
“We are privileged to have Chibsah oversee all recruitment and scouting for the Academy,”
“The USSF-licensed coach joins us after similar roles with the University of Delaware and Philadelphia Union.”
In response the Ghanaian said he looked forward to working with the new group and contributing to the teams development.
“I’d like to thank Marc Nicholls and the leadership group for the opportunity to serve at Charlotte FC”.
“I look forward to contributing to the development of the game, in and beyond the Carolinas, and assisting our young talents reach their sporting and academic dreams.”
Chibsah, who was the assistant men's team coach at the University of Delaware before his latest appointment, was part of the six finalist for the Technical director role for the Ghana Football Association.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that the director of football for AFC Ajax, Marc Overmars, has expressed his disappointment at missing out on Ghana forward, Kamaldeen Sulemana.
It was almost certain Sulemana was going to join the Amsterdam club with Goal reporting that Ajax had made him their top transfer target for this summer.
However, it was not to be, as French side, Stade Rennes swooped for the Ghanaian in a €20 million deal.
