Joe Hendricks joins calls for a local Black Stars coach

Former Asante Kotoko skipper Joe Hendricks has added his voice to the debate of who should become the next coach of the Black Stars team.

The GFA are on the verge of appointing a new coach for the team following Avram Grant’s departure after the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

”I’ve learnt that they [Ghana FA] have setup a six-member committee to look for a new coach for the Black Stars team, but I don’t see this decision to be the best for Ghanaians at all,” Hendrick told Berekum-based Chris FM.

”Ghanaians are clamouring for a local coach and I think they should be allow to choose their next head coach of the Black Stars.

“The voice of the Ghanaian populace should be considered in this exercise,” he emphasized.

”Again, the GFA shouldn’t allow the said set committee to impose any coach on Ghanaians for the vacant coaching job as it’ll be unfair to the people of the nation. The right thing which must be done is to pave way for Ghanaians to go for their own coach for the senior national team,” he reiterated.

Joe Hendricks captained Kotoko during the 2005 Confederations Cup final.
