Black Stars coach Avram Grant has revealed that players who show their abilities will get the chance to feature for the national team in the future.
The coach was speaking to pressmen after the team’s visit to the Flagstaff House on Tuesday to visit the President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, following their arrival from Equatorial Guinea where they placed second in the 2015 AFCON to Cote d’Ivoire.
Grant stated that he would always look to bring in players who were willing to work hard for the team.
“The national team will always be open to players who are ready to prove themselves. It is not a secret that I took over in a short time and I could not see a lot of the players in action. The only player I observed was Daniel Amartey and I think he was very good in the tournament.”
Grant went on to state that a large part of the team would be kept for the future because they were still young and they had a lot to offer.
“I think 80 percent of this national team will continue for a long time because of their ages. There are is no national team which does not even have players who are over age 30. In our case, we have only two players who are about 25 or 26 so it is good for the future.”
The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, said Grant had exceeded the target set for him and that he would continue as head coach of the Black Stars.
