The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is yet to open application for the Black Stars job which will be vacant after today when Avram Grant’s term of office expires.

Media reports claim over 60 expatriate coaches have applied to replace the Israeli trainer.

Ghana FA spokesperson, Ibrahim Sannie-Daara confirmed on Marhaba FM on Saturday that the Executive Committee will meet this week to decide on the selection criteria.

There are many clamouring for an indigenous Ghanaian coach to be selected with Sudan-based Kwesi Appiah as the frontrunner.

Nordsjaell and assistant coach Otto Addo has been tipped to partner Ibrahim Tanko to be given the nod while former France captain Marcel Desailly is tipped heavily in other quarters.

Despite the revelation, the office of the FA continues to be inundated with enquiries and applications for the position by both foreign and local applicants, according to Ibrahim Sannie Daara.

The Football Association and outgoing Black Stars coach Avram Grant will part ways mutually today having failed to meet the target of winning the last Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Gabon.

The Black Stars hopes of making it to the fourth successive World Cup in Russia 2018 is in doubt after recording just a point after two matches.

“The Executive Committee will meet to decide on the appointment on the next Black Stars.”

“We don’t care appointing a local or expatriate coach because when we are getting the results they will not ask if the coach is a local coach or an expatriate coach.

“Several coaches have applied for the Black Stars coaching job but we want to choose a competent coach because we have learnt our lessons from the appointment of Avram Grant.”

Former Tottenham coach Harry Redknapp is the latest to be linked to the vacant role.
