Experienced Yussif Basigi and Baba Nuhu have traveled to Germany for a four-week attachment stint with Bundesliga side TSG Hoffeinheim.
It is part of a capacity building project that was announced by Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku a few months ago and was facilitated by the Technical Director of the GFA, Bernhard Lippert.
According to a statement from the FA, it also forms part of the greater effort to make Ghanaian coaches come to terms with the modern trends in football coaching.
The two coaches who work with female clubs – Hasaacas Ladies and Pearl Pia Ladies – are being sponsored to embark on this stint to improve their level in Coaching and to position them among the elite football brains in the continent.
The FA announced in July that the Technical Directorate had brokered a deal with three European Clubs, namely, Borussia Dortmund, Darmstadt FC and TSG Hoffeinheim for attachment opportunities for Ghanaian Coaches.
“This was part of efforts to give national team coaches (Male and Female) as well as coaches in the top tier leagues the opportunity to have practical stints with top European clubs to broaden their horizon and to equip them with the modern trends of football.
“The GFA is fully funding this attachment opportunity for the two coaches.”
The statement added that“Mercy Tagoe- Quarcoo (Berry Ladies, Black Queens) and Joyce Boatey-Agyei (Supreme Ladies and Black Damsels) are next in line to benefit from this attachment opportunity,” the statement added.
The Technical Directorate of the GFA is headed by former Eintracht Frankfurt Manager Bernhard Lippert with support from Director of Coaching Education Joseph Kwame Mintah and other administrative staff. –GFA
