Coach Bashir Hayford has left his future with the Black Queens in the hands of ‘authorities’ following Ghana’s early exit from the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.
The tournament hosts crashed out of the tournament despite putting up a spirited performance in a 1-1 draw with Cameroon on Friday.
Ghana finished third in Group A having garnered four points with Cameroon and Mali the teams to progress from the group to the semi-finals.
Coach Bashir Hayford was booed by the fans as he made his way into the tunnel – the clearest indication of his unpopularity at the moment.
But the former Asante Kotoko coach says he would gladly continue in his current job if asked to do so.
“It is not me, it is the authorities,” he said,
“I am a coach who is prepared to train.
“If I am fit and still alive and they say coach Bashir Hayford come and help as I am doing then I will because this is service to the nation.
“But if they say I should make way for another coach then fair enough, I would.”
