Barely twenty-four hours after his meet-the-press session with journalists in Accra, Ghana coach Avram Grant is already out of the capital.

The Israeli gaffer who has been widely criticized for his inability to stay in Ghana for longer periods is reported to have left the capital on Monday night, hours after his encounter with the press at the Conference Hall of the Ghana Football Association.

Grant, however, made an appearance at the headquarters of the broadcasting network, Sky Sports granting a studio interview with the UK-based media firm.

The 60-year old who has so far introduced eight new players during his one year reign as head coach of the black stars has largely credited his absence to player scouting in European countries.

With the World Cup Qualifiers set to resume later in March 2015, the former Chelsea boss could be heading for a long stay abroad especially with the festive period in sight.
