The entire technical team of the Black Stars has been dissolved, deep-throat sources within the Ghana Football Association have told SportsObama.com
Our sources can confirm that, the Black Stars backroom staff have been told they would not be retained after Ghana’s two international friendlies in the last week of March.
SportsObama.com can reveal that, interim coach Maxwell Konadu, Goalkeepers trainer Nasaamu Yakubu, Psychologist J.K Mintah, Team Doctor Adam Muntawakilu Baba and other members who constitute the current backroom team were informed at an FA meeting last week that their services will be terminated at the end of March 2017.
The GFA Spokesperson, Ibrahim Saani Daara earlier this week said that members of the current backroom team will maintain their respective roles under the incoming head coach.
However, the FA latest decision, which has been communicated to the technical team and picked up by our sources, contradicts the spokesperson’s proclamation.
A member of the current technical team who spoke to SportsObama.com on condition of anonymity confirmed that, the GFA has informed the backroom staff at a meeting last week they would have to exit after Ghana’s friendly games in the last week of March.
“We understand that was the decision of the GFA and we have been duly informed but it is yet to be made official so we are preparing for the games”, He said.
This decision essentially means that, the new Black Stars coach, expected to be named April 2017, will work with a new backroom staff.
The Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi is spearheading a committee to appoint a new coach to take over from Avram Grant.
