The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Henry Asante Twum has denied reports making the rounds that three coaches have been shortlisted for the vacant Black Stars coaching job.
There have been reports in the media over the week that Hector Cuper, Steve McClaren, and Chris Hughton have been shortlisted for the position left vacant by the resignation of Otto Addo last December.
Reacting to the reports in an interview, Mr. Asante Twum said the GFA has not made any shortlist of coaches who have sent in applications for the Black Stars job.
He stated on State of Affairs on GHOne TV that his outfit has not made any shortlist but will make one at the right time. He added that the job is open for all competent coaches around the round.
The Communications Director admits that there is pressure to appoint a competent coach no matter the race, the key ingredient is competence.
After Otto Addo’s resignation following Ghana’s early exit from the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the nation has been without a substantive head coach.
In related news, former Black Stars head coach, Kwesi Appiah has confirmed he has applied for the vacant coaching job.
