The Youth and Sports Minister, Hon. Isaac Asiamah wants a Ghanaian appointed as the head coach of the Black Stars, following the exit of Avram Grant.

Dr. Owusu Ansah, a member of the 6-man committee to hunt for the new Black Stars coach says the Sports Minister would want to see a Ghanaian handed the Black Stars coach.

''I’ve been a coach before and I know what it takes to be a coach. All coaches should have a certain theoretical knowledge about principles of coaching. It is only the discipline that differs. So an athletic coach is no different from a football coach. So I’m looking at somebody who has a sound base, sound knowledge about principles of coaching,” he stated.
