Nyantakyi’s New Plan For Coaches
The chieftain of the Ghana Football Association, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi has revealed that Ghana Football Association intends to roll out an elaborate program to identify both up-and-coming and existing coaches with potential and sponsor for refresher programs at reputable institutions.
According to the FA capo, coaches such Sam Arday, Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayfio, Herbert Addo, Fred Osam Duodo and Emmanuel Kwesi Afranie have established high standards that will pass every test anywhere in the world.
He said the Black Stars’ qualification to the world Cup under an indigenous tactician is a test case for all to see that home-grown coaches with their capacities enhanced can achieve what any other trainer can under the sun.
The FA boss reckoned that Ghana has an armada of truly great tacticians who can hold their own, but then the ordinary Ghanaian had different views.
He believed however that home-grown coaches who are not cut out for the task should be dropped.
According to Mr Nyantakyi, home-grown coaches have played a great role in football development in the country and will continue to play a leading role that will see Ghana Football rise to the occasion.
He said the paranoia should stop now as its continuation would wrack and ruin the hopes of the local coaches.
Speaking to Sun Sports, the FA Chief mentioned that the Football Association, as part of its efforts to streamline the technical direction of the country’s football, will send Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah to a recognised and reputable institution abroad to have his skills upgraded.
