Asamoah Gyan, a former Black Stars player, has described the kind of coach the team currently needs.
Following Otto Addo’s resignation as coach of the Black Stars after Ghana’s exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the position of Black Stars head coach has remained vacant.
Asamoah Gyan, who played for the national side for 17 years, has described the type of coach required as the Ghana Football Association searches for the next coach to become the next head coach.
The all-time leading scorer for Ghana in an interview said that the Black Stars require a coach who cannot be swayed by the highest levels of Ghanaian football administration.
“Ghana is a football nation so when we are appointing any coach we need someone who can stamp his authority not someone coming to try,” he told Dan Kwaku Yeboah.
According to him, the coach’s style of play must be visible for all to see even if he is inexperienced.
“We need an experienced coach, someone with strong credentials, not someone. Even if he is an inexperienced coach we should be able to identify what the coach has taught the players in terms of their style of play. You can take an inexperienced coach but make sure he understands the game, someone who will make the people understand his philosophy.
“Someone who can take charge, not someone who takes orders, you have to be strict and take charge of what you are doing,” Gyan said.
