“If Avram Grant has to come to Ghana we will support him. He is a good coach, he has coached big clubs and hopefully he will help Ghana. I am a Ghanaian and what is most important is that we win trophies, and anybody that is going to bring trophies I will be with the person, whether he is big, small or whatever,” Dede said.

“If he is coming to Ghana then I know that he will feel the Ghanaian pressure, he will know that Ghana is a country which needs to win because we have not won a trophy in a long while. I hope that the experience he has had, and he has, he will bring it and help us,” he added.

While Dede is looking forward to the arrival of a new man, he is keen to pay tribute to the men who have been in recent charge of the team. “Kwesi Appiah did a good job, Maxwell had done a great job too. I have been impressed.”
