Black Stars coach Avram Grant has said that he does not award marks for himself for his performance, but leaves that for his wife to do.

Addressing the media at his one year press conference, Mr. Grant said, “When it comes to performance I don’t judge myself, I leave that for my wife to do.”

“If I should be judged, then I want to be judged on the field,” the Israeli coach said.

According to Avram Grant, the Black Stars have improved tremendously in the area of defending set pieces.

“We don’t have too many tall players in the Black Stars so we used to concede more goals from set pieces but I think we’ve improved upon it. We all sat down and developed a plan to help us curb the situation and I think it worked for us,” he added.

The former Chelsea coach also claims he doesn’t know anything like a ‘local’ player because to him, every Ghanaian playing football is considered a Ghanaian unless the GFA comes out with a clear cut definition so it doesn’t matter where one plays.

Avram Grant, however, reckons that his greatest challenge as the coach of the Black Stars is to improve upon his last game.
