Grant new Black Stars coach
from FRANCIS SACKITEY in Accra, Ghana
ACCRA – GHANA Football Association (GFA) has appointed Israeli manager, Avam Grant, as the senior men’s national team coach.
According to officials, the Youth and Sports Ministry has approved the move.
“The Ghana FA briefed the Minister on how far we have gone with the appointment of Avram Grant and the Ministry actually expressed satisfaction with the way process has gone so far so we are proceeding with the next level of engagement of the coach that is to inform the executive committee of the meeting with the Minister and the meeting that the Federation had with Grant,” said Ibrahim SaaniDaara, GFA’s spokesman.
He replaces Akwesi Appiah, who took the national team who was sacked after the disastrous World Cup outing in July in the middle of the year.
Both camps have remained tight-lipped over the coach’s financial package which is rumoured to be a monthly salary of US$ 50 000 and a signing on fee of US$ 200, 000.
The 59-year-old, who will lead Ghana at the 2015 Africa Cup of nations in Equatorial Guinea, has previously coached in his homeland, England and Serbia.
