Avram Grant will leave his post as Ghana coach after the AFCON third place play-off

Avram Grant will leave his post as Ghana coach after the African Cup of Nations third place play-off match against Burkina Faso.
Grant’s two-year contract will not be renewed and the search is on for a successor, senior Ghana Football Association (GFA) officials have revealed.
The former Chelsea manager took over as Ghana coach one month before the last Nations Cup in Equatorial Guinea and took the side to the final where they lost to Cote d’Ivoire on penalties.
At the tournament in Gabon, Ghana reached the semi-finals but were beaten 2-0 by Cameroon in Port Gentil on Thursday.
Hopes of winning the bronze medal was dashed following another defeat in the hands of Burkina Faso at Port Gentil on Saturday.
Israeli Grant avoided questions about his future, saying now was not the time to talk about it.
Ghana made a poor start to their World Cup qualifying group with a single point from two games.
They have now qualified for six successive Nations Cup semi-finals but their last victory in the tournament came 35 years ago.-Mailonline
