Former Netherlands international George Boateng and Otto Addo have reportedly rejected an offer from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to be new assistant coaches of the Black Stars.
The duo were amongst the list of managers contacted by the three-member committee led by Vice President of the GFA, Mark Addo to occupy the vacant Black Stars Assistant coach role. However, they reportedly rejected the role for varied reasons.
George Boateng, who’s currently the head coach of Aston Villa U-23 side reportedly turned down the offer insisting he wants the top job. Per Muftawu Anabila of Joy News, Boateng has however agreed to play the role of a scout for the team instead when they go for the next African Cup in January.
Otto Addo, who featured for Ghana at the 2006 World Cup in Germany and is currently the Assistant coach of Borussia Dortmund turned down the offer due to his job security.
The Committee will continue their search for the Assistant coach. Per reports, the Committee prioritize appointing a Ghanaian for the role.
Meanwhile, Milovan Rajevac is expected to be named new head coach of the Black Stars in the coming hours, making a return to the team after leaving in 2010.
The Serbian manager will sign a 2-year deal and will earn $45,000 a month.
