Former Ghana international Mohammed Polo has made known the kind of coach the national senior men’s team needs at the moment.
The Ghana Football Association has been on a search for a new head coach for the Black Stars since the resignation of Otto Addo as head coach in December last year.
With over 60 applications received so far for the vacant job, the GFA is expected to announce a new head coach before the end of the month of January.
Speaking in an interview with Bryt FM, Mohammed Polo has advised decision-makers at the Ghana Football Association to hire a coach who is up to date with the country’s football history and style of play.
He insisted that Ghana is facing footballing challenges because it has deviated from its style of play and so there is the need to appoint a coach who has an idea of the country’s style of play and history.
Mohammed Polo revealed that in the recent past, coaches have refused to go by Ghana’s known style of play which has had a negative impact on the team.
Meanwhile, there are reports in local media that there is a shortlist of three coaches for the Black Stars job.
Current technical advisor for the Black Stars, Chris Hughton, and Manchester United assistant coach Steve McClaren and Hector Cupper are those being reported to be on the shortlist.
The Black Stars will be in action in March for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
