“I had a brief chat with him when he arrived here and I must say I was very impressed with his knowledge of the game and his desire to end the Black Stars’ trophy drought since 1982.”

“He looks very focused and though the FA gave him just a simple task of doing well at the nations Cup, I believe that he will do more than well, to surprise us with the cup”, Ayariga told

“I believe he can win it irrespective of the time he will use to assemble his team and the time the competition will start. It won’t be a surprise to me because the rest of the technical team will be there to assist him to make good choices as the tournament progresses.”
