Chairman, Parliament Select Committee On Sports Hon. Johnson Kwaku Adu has advised the Ghana Football Association to appoint a competent coach for our senior national soccer team ‘The Black Stars of Ghana’ but not to appoint base on colour or creed.
The Black Stars coaching job has become vacant after the sacking of CK Akonnor.
The argument in Ghana now is whether to appoint another local coach or a foreigner to occupy the position.
Per an information reaching the sports fraternity the Government of Ghana has approved the GFA’s decision to appoint a foreign coach for the Black Stars coaching job.
In an interview with the Member of Parliament for Ahafo Ano South West Constituency in the Ashanti Region he claimed “A competent coach is the one who can help Ghana.
“We are only looking for competent coach not by colour, creed or whatever. We are looking for someone who can help Black Stars to be solid again for us to get our wins whether he is a Ghanain or a foreigner.
“If the GFA is about to make changes to appoint a new coach after CK Akonnor then my advice for them is to sit down and plan well because the applications are still coming, they can receive all the applications alright but they should analyze it and check the track records of those applicants, their current issues, how they can address and solve all the challenges before they can be selected. This is what I have for them” Hon. Johnson Kwaku Adu told Wontumi Nationwide Sports.
