Posted by

Former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), George Afriyie has named five Ghanaian coaches he believes are fit for the Black Stars managerial role.

Following Ghana’s disastrous performance at the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), the Ghana FA earlier today announced a decision to part ways with Head Coach of the team, Milovan Rajevac.

Per reports, former Black Stars players Otto Addo and Ibrahim Tanko, Aston Villa U-23 Coach George Boateng and former Brighton Head Coach Chris Hughton are being considered as replacements for Milo.

Speaking in an interview with Happy FM, Bankroller of Okyeman Planners, George Afriyie named George Boateng, Otoo Addo, Ibrabim Tanko, Kwasi Appiah and CK Akonnor as his preferred candidates for the Black Stars managerial role.

“For me, George Boateng is fantastic, Otoo Addo super, Tanko Ibrahim super, Kwasi Appiah super, CK super. They can all do it. We have the men.

He also added that Great Olympics’ Annor Walker, RTU’s Shaibu Ibrahim Tanko, Nurudeen Ahmed of King Faisal and Prosper Narteh Ogum of Asante Kotoko can be considered as Assistant Coaches.

“Locally we have the men but because they don’t have the national experience. If not we can get a lot of coaches in our local league but they should be considered as assistant coaches.

“Annor Walker, Tanko of RTU, Nuru of King Faisal. They should be considered as assistant coaches, they are doing very very well and even Kotoko coach, Prosper Nartey Ogum. He is a good coach. He’s doing well.

“If they cannot be considered they can be considered as assistant coaches because they have to start from somewhere and be groomed,” the former GFA President added.

Meanwhile, the Technical team and the Management Committee of the Black Stars has been dissolved and will be reconstituted in the coming days.
