With barely a week since Ghana’s coach, Avram Grant resigned from his post, former minister of youth and sports, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye is calling for the next coach to be a local one.
“I am for a Ghanaian coach or an African coach…I’m not racist or ethnocentric but I think Ghanaian coaches will do better. Maligning Ghanaian coaches and give them time and space to work”. he revealed on Class FM.
Revealing his best choice for the top job, Avram Grant named Kwesi Appiah, Sellas Tetteh, CK Akunnor, Ibrahim Tanko, Marcel Desailly as examples of rich talents “who have what it takes to handle the Black Stars” if given the chance.
Avram Grant leaves the Black Stars in what most sports experts argue to be a damaged state considering the poor performance at the just ended AFCON.
