Bank roller of King Faisal FC, Alhaji Grusah says Ghana will need an expatriate coach to end the country’s long-standing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy drought.
The African prestigious international football title has eluded the Black Stars for over three decades now.
Hence, the sub-saharan country desperately wanting to break what seems like a jinx has budgeted $6million to fund the team for the next AFCON tournament in Cameroon, according to Sports Minister, Hon. Mustapha Ussif.
However, Grusah thinks the current head coach of the Senior National Team, Charles Kwabla Akunnor is unfit to steer Ghana to glory in 2022.
“I’m a Ghanaian, I can’t support Burkina Faso or any other country than Ghana but this coach has nothing better to lead our team for the trophy”, He told Kumasi FM.
The veteran football administrator added specifically that the country will need a white coach to be able to clinch the much-awaited trophy.
“I believe we can win the trophy but not with this coach, Ghana needs a white coach because football is managed by a critical thinking person and I know you understand me well”, he concluded.
The 2021 edition of the AFCON competition will kick off in January 2022 due to the COVID-19 effect on the qualifying round in 2020.
