Ghana needs a foreign coach – Social media users

Social media users are saying Ghana needs a foreign coach to manage Black stars.

Days ago, the executive council of the Ghana Football Association terminated the appointment of Black Stars Coach Charles Akonnor and his two Assistants with immediate effect.

This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the Head Coach of the Senior National Team and the report from the Black Stars Management Committee following Ghana’s Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.

The Executive Council after considering the two reports decided to terminate its relationship with Head Coach C. K Akonnor and the two Assistants.

The Executive Council has formed a three (3) Member Committee made up of Vice President Mark Addo, Upper East Regional Football Association Chairman, Alhaji Salifu Zida, and Dr. Randy Abbey to find a Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours.

According to social media users they prefer a foreign coach. This was revealed when TVXYZ Ghana made a poll on Twitter for Ghanaians to vote between a foreign and local coach.


Nevertheless four notable European coaches have slapped in their CVs to be considered for the vacant national team post of Ghana following the sacking of Charles Akonnor, can exclusively reveal.

Among the early applicants for the Black Stars vacant is Italian coach Francesco Guidolin who coached Stephen Appiah at Udinese and Andre Ayew at Swansea City.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre, longtime Pep Guardiola assistant Domènec Torrent and Frenchman Alain Giresse who has vast working experience in Africa.

All the four coaches are among the early people to have sent their CVs to the Ghana FA following the decision to appoint coach within three days.
