Avram Grant must go, Sammy Kuffour tells GFA

Former Ghana defender Sammy Osei Kuffour was left disappointed after the Black Stars failed to reach the finals of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations final and has called on the Ghana Football Association to sack under-fire manager Avram Grant.

The former Bayern Munich defender, working as a pundit on South Africa-based Pay TV SuperSport, ripped into the former Chelsea manager as the chief cause for the team’s inability to end their trophy drought in Gabon.

Ghana were beaten 2-0 by Cameroon and will have to wait for two more years to have a shot at winning the elusive fifth trophy.

And An incensed Kuffour was uncharitable to Grant and did not mince words in blaming him for the washed out campaign.

”I’m pissed. [Avram] Grant must go. He spends all his time outside the country and does not develop any local talent. Ghana football is in crises and I’m worried about the youth,” Kuffour remonstrated after the final whistle.’’
