In another development,owner and bankroller of Kumasi-based King Faisal, Alhaji Karim Gruzah has opposed the appointment of Avram Grant as the head coach of the Black Stars claiming he would like the FA to hire Italian manager Massimo Morales.

Grant, a former Chelsea boss is on the verge of being named to fill up the vacant post at the senior national team after the Nations football governing body confirmed him as the preferred candidate for the job.

But the outspoken football administrator who is currently settling issues with the FA in court says he would rather recommend former King Faisal coach Massimo Morales to take up the top job.

“Me I do not support the coach who is said to be the former coach of Chelsea. But to me he is sacked from Chelsea because of performance and he is here,” Gruzah disclosed to Starr Fm.

“Maybe he can do his best but if it’s me I will recommend President Massimo Morales. I know him personally, he coached King Faisal between 1995 and 1996 but he had an accident”.

Morales was the assistant coach for the Black Stars between 1998 and 1999. He also assistant Giovanni Trapattoni at German side Bayern Munich between 1995 and 1995.
