Avram Grant's recent match result and performance of the Black Stars have given many football fans a lot of concerns to worry especially in their 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
Reports are that Black Stars’ head coach Avram Grant was among the final three shortlisted coaches who applied for the United States coaching job but was snubbed by the USA football federation.
According to close source in the US, the handlers of their national team are impressed with Ghana’s Avram Grant work done in his capacity with the Black Stars which includes a defeat in the 2015 Afcon finals to Ivory Coast.
Bruce Arena, who is now the USA national team coach left his post as LA Galaxy head coach and General Manager and he will be leading them to their next world cup qualifier against Honduras.
Barely two-months to the 2017 Gabon AFCON, Ghana are yet to draw up a residential camping programme for the Black Stars.
Close source reveals Ghana’s opponent Uganda started a non-residential camping on Wednesday as they are burnt on qualifying to their first ever fifa world cup in 2018. Uganda will again play the Black Stars at the AFCON as they are paired up alongside Egypt and Mali.
For Avram Grant, his employers have left him freely without any task and that he leaves and comes back into the country at any given time.
Even after losing 2-0 to Egypt in their second qualifier, pressure have started to mount on the former Chelsea boss to step aside before the black stars enplane to Gabon for their AFCON tournament.
Following Avram Grant’s meeting with the Ghana football association days after they were humiliated 2-0 in Cairo, the final decision on Grant’s future has been left bare without any positive step, leaving the coach to continue his usual travel tour of Europe in the so-called name of monitoring Ghanaian players abroad for the senior national team of Ghana.
George Afriyie, a vice president of the football association disclosed to Peace power sports that, a crunchy meeting between him (Avram Grant) and the Ghana Football Association to determined his faith.
The earlier Grant leaves the shores Ghana, the better for him to avoid a disgrace as Ghana’s in their next away game which will be against a well-motivated Congolese side in Brazzaville where they meet at 60- sitter capacity Kintele sports stadium.
For Avram Grant, nothing shows that he wants to qualify Ghana to the 2018 world cup as he is unconcern about the feeling of many football fans in the country. It looks like, the Black Stars coach is joking with the heart of Ghanaians and he must leave the black stars. This according to soccer pundit who loves the game.
Avram Grant’s black stars have just a point from their two matches played at the fifa world cup qualifiers which seems to be over for the black stars at the Russia world cup. Grants recent career matches played for the black star have been nothing to write home about as Ghanaians are calling for his head immediately to avert another humiliation in their qualifiers. His contract runs out after AFCON and sacking him will means Ghana will pay unnecessary cost which GNPC will pay for nothing.
Football mathematics keep unabated as the qualifiers wears-on in Ghana’s group. Already football fans have had enough of GFA’s impose Avram Grant and there are calls to end his contract immediately before they’re disgraced again.
Already, the are calls from certain quarters asking for the head of coach Avram Grant. Unless the Israeli wants to offer his own head, however, it should be possible to sit Avram Grant down to give him some technical pieces of advice about the Ghanaian game to improve upon the delivery of his team’s performance but tempers are high now especially as the AFCON nears.
I think the Ghana Football Association should admits that Avram Grant’s coaching the senior national team has been a waste and unnecessary cost because he uses the same player’s former black stars head coach Kwesi Appiah called and no improvement in our performance as a team.
A session of Ghanaian coaches believe the GFA can only sack Avram Grant after the AFCON since he has already qualified the team to AFCON.
People should know that as it stands now, coach Grant has a contract with the football association and can only make him go after the AFCON and so we can only access his performance with the tournament in Gabon.
This according to a veteran coach Kuuku Dadzie.Truth must be told Avram Grant, has not respected his employers and for that matter Ghanaians since taking over the stars coaching job and have no ears to whatsoever Ghanaians say concerning his enormous travels and the lack of studying the Ghanaian league.
Black Stars if anything at all, must beat Uganda in Capala and beat Egypt at home before warping up with victory over Congo in both legs and wait and pray for a either a draw for Uganda and Egypt or defeat to the Pharaohs. Grant is currently under immense pressure to perform following Ghana’s less than impressive start to Russia world cup.
Ghanaians will recall that before Avram Grant was appointed, he told news men that he will organize coaches’ clinic for our local coaches and other seamier for players and football administrators but non-of what he talked about have been implemented or seen a day light.
