The French legend is undecided about getting into the race for the Black Stars job.
Desailly was born in Ghana but moved to France at a very tender age – where his footballing career began. He subsequently played for the French national team, winning the World Cup and the European Championship in 1998 and 2000 respectively.
Back in 2012, the former Chelsea defender was a favourite to land the Ghana coaching job after he was shortlisted together with five others by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
However, he eventually missed out to Kwasi Appiah after calls from the public for the FA to appoint an indigenous coach.
Five years on, and Ghana is again without a coach after Avram Grant resigned from the job earlier in February.
Some names have been mooted in the media, with Desially being touted as one of the candidates to replace the Israeli as Black Stars coach.
And the French legend has now disclosed that some people are calling on him to “position himself” for the job.
In a Twitter post Marcel Desailly wrote: “Lots of Pressure on me to position my self for the Ghana Black stars Job!”, accompanied by a banner being hurled by a fan with the inscription “Marcel Desailly all the way. Our next Black Stars coach.”
Marcel Desailly boasts of a glittering career which spanned over a decade, and was also a UEFA Champions League winner with Olympique Marseille and AC Milan.
However, he is yet to be tested at the managerial level, although he hold UEFA Pro license.
