Ghana football will witness a dramatic event in a few weeks as four former national football heroes are set to test their tactical prowess against each other in a historic football gala.
All four, who are former Black Stars players, and have taken to the sidelines as coaches after monumental playing careers will meet to test their mettle to see who is the most technically and tactically endowed.
On 17th of this month at the Vision Explorers Park at Pantan Oyarifa, former Black Stars players Laryea Kingston, Godwin Attram, Awudu Isaka and John Pantsil will be competing in a special football gala dubbed Ghana Got Talent Soccer Gala.
Kickoff is 10am.
According to the four former national stars, Ghana has both talented footballers and coaches, and they will be using the platform to showcase what the West Africans have both on the sidelines and on the field.
Godwin Attram will be on the bench with his Attram de Visse Academy while John Pantsil guides Division Two side Vision Explorers FC with Awudu Isaka steering FC Tema 20 and Laryea Kingston behind his Kingstep FC.
John Pantsil who was the assistant to Steve Komphela at South Africa side Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to extend his 10 games unbeaten run with Vision Explorers FC following a great start with 9 wins and a draw.
Attram, who needs no introduction when it comes to coaching after his expedition with Great Olympics, will have a lot to prove against his colleagues who are yet to handle any top flight side.
Awudu Isaka on the other hand will have to prove why his Division Two side, FC Tema 20 is one of the strongest sides in Tema while Laryea Kingston tries to translate his dynamism and uniqueness on the field as a coach with his Kingstep FC.
