- Grant withdraws but offers no apology for bull*** comment
- The Black Stars coach has also been accused by Ghanaians that he doesn't stay in Ghana to monitor the local league
- Grant led the Black Stars to the finals of the 2015 Africa Cup of nations in Equatorial Guinea
Coach for Ghana’s senior national team, Avram Grant has withdrawn his bulls*** comment but failed to apologize for the unfortunate comment.
The Black Stars coach in an interview after Ghana’s recent Afcon qualifier against Mozambique said Ghanaians should stop the “bulls*** and concentrate on football”.
Grant's comment has received a lot of backlash in the Ghanaian public leading to his eventual retraction and further explanation of his point.
"First, I withdraw the [bullish**t] comment and I want to tell Ghanaians that I love Ghana and Ghanaians and I care about the Ghanaian team," the former Chelsea manager said in an interview with communications director of the Ghana Football Association, Ibrahim Saani Daara.
"What I want to say is that we need everybody not to concentrate on the unnecessary things and focus on the most important that our leaders that can make the change will focus on those things and it will take us forward for the development of football in this country," he clarified.
Avram Grant was appointed as Black Stars coach on December 2014 as a successor to James Kwesi Appiah who led the Black Stars at the FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.
Grant led the country to the finals of the 2015 Africa Cup of nations in Equatorial Guinea, placing second after losing 8-9 on penalties to Ivory Coast .
