I never apologised for bull***t comment – Grant

Black Stars coach, Avram Grant

Black Stars coach Avram Grant has clarified that he never apologized to Ghanaians for his bull***t comment because he didn’t insult anybody.

According to him, he only retracted the word bull***t after his attention was drawn that Ghanaians had taken offence to the word.

"I didn't apologise...because if you follow my career I have never insulted anybody."

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Starr FM in Accra, Grant said his comments were taken out of context.

According to him, bull***t is a word he uses often in his punditry work and at home with his kids and did not mean to use it in a derogatory manner.

"There was no negative meaning behind it because I use it in punditry work and at home with my kids," Grant said.

He added that Ghanaians are "kind" and "very welcoming" and [he] will never disrespect them in anyway.

Grant after the win against Mozambique in the 2017 Nations Cup qualifier said at the post-match press conference that “If this nation will concentrate on the football and not the bull***t, and just the football because there is a lot of passion, we can reach higher, high level. It is a long term target, but it’s achievable.”
