Don’t Appoint A Coach Who Has Ties With Player Management Agencies – J. E Sarpong
Renowned Ghanaian coach Joseph Emmanuel (J.E) Sarpong has advised the Ghana Football Association to ensure that it does not appoint a national team coach who has interests in play management agencies.
He made the suggestion to help forestall the occurrence of conflict of interest when it comes to player selection to the national team.
Coach J.E Sarpong says the coach who will be appointed must have at least 10 years of coaching, must be of a high level of integrity, fair and firm in his decision making.
He added that the appointed coach should exhibit the ability to work in the Ghanaian environment and can communicate in basic English. He says that whatever amount is agreed as salary for the new coach should fall into the budget of the FA.
On the player section, the veteran coach insists that players who should be on top of the list are those who perform regularly for their clubs both at home and abroad.
It is expected that the GFA will announce a new head coach for the Black Stars by the end of January.
