J.E Sarpong says the Ghana Football Association (GFA) should settle on Marcel Desailly for the vacant Black Stars coaching job.

Avram Grant term as Black Stars coach will expire by the end of February and both Grant and the GFA have agreed not to sign a new contract.

The hunt for a new coach has begun and it was reported that week that Willy Sagnol, the French international is the favourite to land the Black Stars job.

J.E Sarpong, whose last job was at Ebusua Dwarfs has tipped Marcel Desailly for the job, since that would help Ghana end the long wait for a continental title.

''Marcel Desailly for me is the right man for the vacant coaching job and I see him as the person who can end our nation's trophyless jinx,'' he told United Television.

'' Foreign coaches can't win trophies for us and so I don't see the rationale behind their appointments,''

'' I think Marcel Desailly has what it takes to lead the senior national team as he remains the only option that can bring success to us when given the top coaching job,''

'' Again with the help of Ibrahim Tanko and Kwesi Appiah being part of his technical men in the dugout, I have no doubt that they can do the job when task to do so,'' he pointed out.
