Ghana Players Can't Determine Avram Grant's Future - Jonathan Mensah

The defender has insisted that the Black Stars players are not part of the decision making body regarding Avram Grant's future.

Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah says the Black Stars are comfortable with coach Avram Grant but cannot determine his future at the helm of the team.

The 61-year-old former Chelsea manager is currently facing severe criticisms following the Black Stars’ 2-0 loss to Egypt in the 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifiers on Sunday.

The defeat leaves Ghana in third place in Group E with just one point, five behind Egypt. Ghana have now also gone five games without a win in all competitions since August, raising concerns about Grant's technical abilities.

"We [the players] don't deal with the coach in terms of contract. He is the leader of the team and he has people that deal with him at that level," Mensah was quoted as saying

"So we will just leave that for the management and the federation. For us, looking at what we started with him in 2014, we are comfortable working with him but it is not for us the players to say he should go or stay on as the coach," he added

Grant joined Ghana in a two-and -half year deal in November 2014, guiding them to finish second at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after losing on penalties to eventual winners Cote d'Ivoire.

His contract expires in February 2017 and may likely not to be extended.
