Black Stars: Over 60 applications received for Ghana job – Asante Twum
The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum, says over 60 coaches have applied for the Black Stars job.
He adds that these coaches are mostly European who are vying to lead Ghana’s rebuilding post-World Cup.
Asante Twum believes these many coaches are showing interest in the job because the Black Stars is one of the most attractive brands in Africa.
“The Black Stars is one of the most attractive brands on the continent. Every single day you open the GFA email, you will see someone has applied for the Black Stars coaching job,” he said on Asempa FM.
“Maybe over 60 applications. The Black Stars is very attractive. You cannot have Mohammed Kudus in your team and think the Black Stars is not attractive. It is an attractive brand, no doubt about that.
“Even the very day Coach Otto Addo confirmed he was leaving, we had coaches expressing interest in the job.”
“I’m never surprised that coaches are constantly applying. Most of them are from European countries and some too from South America.
According to Asante Twum, no Ghanaian coach has applied to become the new Black Stars coach. However, Kwasi Appiah said he is open to a return in an interview.
“So far, no Ghanaian coach has applied for the Black Stars job.”
The position has been vacant since Otto Addo left after the global showpiece in Qatar in December 2022.
