And in the next few days, Ghana will have a new trainer, taking over from resigned Avram Grant, who laid down his tools after a shambolic Nations Cup in Gabon last February.

The prospective coach will have a herculean task of qualifying the Stars to its fourth streak World Cup having started poorly with just a point after drawing with Uganda and losing to Egypt.

GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi yesterday said on Inside Football Africa that “By April we should have a new coach or manager,”

Among the long lists of applicants for the job, considered as one of the lucrative in the world are Manchester United legend and former Valencia coach Gary Neville, Harry Redknapp and ex-Brazilian and Real Madrid left-back Roberto Carlos.

Only four local coaches are reported to have applied for the job with fans’ favourite Kwasi Appiah enjoying massive media backing to return as Black Stars coach.
