Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association Henry Asante Twum has given an update on the decision of the Ghana Football Association to appoint a new technical director.
According to Henry, they have gone past two stages which conducting interviews for all candidates who applied and shortlisted the preferred one’s. The last stage is to settle one of the shortlisted coaches.
“We have already done the interview after we released the shortlisted names. Where we have reached now who ever we choose to settle on, there will be negotiations, and a few things. I know the Technical Director role is of great importance to the Ghana FA.
“Oti Akenteng legacy is remarkable and we have to get someone who is competent to continue. Ghanaians should give us a little time, talks are still ongoing for the appointment to be made public.
“I don’t think race is an issue. Kofi Annan worked as UN Secretary, so I don’t think race is an issue. First of all, you have to look at the competence of the person and what the person brings to the table. Secondly, where we are heading to and the kind of person who can help you reach there. Then again, the philosophy you want to use to run your football. So, there are a lot of factors the ExCo are looking at and I am happy a lot of the people who applied have worked in top top countries.
“Even the Ghanaians who applied have great knowledge in the game and have much experience, but we decided not to publish their names because they are attached and could have led to their sacking.
“I know the one that we will settle on will be someone who will help our game to progress.
