YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a Ghanaian football coach, James Eduful, aspires to be the first physically challenged coach for any of the national teams, who will bring home not just glory but also a trophy.
Eduful has overcome challenges and hopes to make history as the first person living with a disability to coach Ghana's Black Stars.
In an interview with SVTV Africa, Eduful, affectionately called Coach Sympathy, recounted his success story and how he overcame the rounds of difficulties.
