Former Hearts of Oak managing director, Neil Armstrong-Mortagbe has given his verdict on Black Stars new assistant coaches appointment after the sacking of ‘underperforming’ CK Akonnor and David Duncan.
Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac was appointed in the previous weeks alongside Coach Maxwell Konadu and Dortmund’s deputy manager Otto Addo.
According to the GFA, Otto Addo and Maxwell Kanadu will be working as a part time assistant coaches for the Black Stars.
The GFA is finding all possible ways to qualify for the upcoming World Cup and also have a stunning performance in the African Cup of Nations.
Neil Armstrong in an interview stated “I was a bit surprised that we were taking coaches on a part-time basis. This would be a question of how much time do they spend on the other job. How much time will they be expected to stay on the Ghana job, I mean the Black Stars job. We have a team that is called from time to time to come and play. How many games do we play in a full year when football is active and not active,” he said in an interview with Chinese-based GL RADIO Online.
“How much time commitment do we need from them for the work that they will do for Black Stars. The two part-time coaches have top good quality, like Maxwell as a coach and also as a former player same as Otoo Addo.
Both two assistant coaches will be serving the Black Stars as a part-time job. Coach Maxwell Kanadu currently works with GPL side Legon Cities as their head coach and Otto Addo serving as deputy manager for German-based Borussia Dortmund.
“I’m sure that the entities with whom who they are currently working with would have been consulted about their availability to the job of the national team and then with due considerations that may have been formed the decision of the FA to appoint these two coaches as a part-time coach.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if in the few months we will hear that they are going off the job they are currently doing and getting to full time focused on the job of the national team because as much as possible we need a kindful cause to be able to qualify to the World Cup and do well at the African Cup and win the trophy.” He ended.
