The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum has revealed that no Ghanaian has shown interest in taking up the vacant Black Stars coaching role.
The association opened for applications after Otto Addo stepped down following the Black Stars exit at the 2022 World Cup in December. While a few local names have been reported to be in line for the job, Henry Asante Twum says none of the applications collated so far are from a Ghanaian.
“Maybe over 60 applications. The Black Stars is very attractive. You cannot have Mohammed Kudus in your team and think the Black Stars are not attractive. It is an attractive brand, no doubt about that,” said Twum on Asempa FM.
“I’m never surprised that coaches are constantly applying. Most of them are from European countries and some too from South America.”
“So far, no Ghanaian coach has applied for the Black Stars job,” Twum disclosed.
Before Otto Addo, James Kwesi Appiah and Charles Akonnor were the last Ghanaian coaches to have led the Black Stars.
The team is expected to begin preparations ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Angola in March.
