Ghana’s all-time top scorer, Asamoah Gyan, has hinted that the Black Stars need a coach who will be firm in taking his own decisions and not allow the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to dictate to him.
According to him, the Black Stars having a strict coach will restore the national team to where they belong and boasting certain qualities could improve the team.
The Ghana FA are on the search for a new head coach following Otto Addo’s decision to resign from his post after the Black Stars’ early exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Chris Hughton and James Kwasi Appiah are among the coaches who are interested in the vacant role with the latter seeking a third spell in charge of the team.
“We need an experienced coach, someone with strong credentials…Even if he is an inexperienced coach we should be able to identify what the coach has taught the players in terms of their style of play,” he told Dan Kwaku Yeboah on YouTube.
“You can take an inexperienced coach but make sure he understands the game, someone who will make the people understand his philosophy,” he added.
“Someone who can take charge, not someone who takes orders, you have to be strict and take charge of what you are doing,” Gyan added.
A new head coach is expected to be named before the Black Stars regroup for the next round of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
