Isreali coach, Avram Grant has been given the “blessing” of the Ministry of Youth and Sports to be the new Black Stars coach after he had fruitful talks with the Ghana Football Association last Friday.
Grant will be taking over from Kwesi Appiah as the Stars’ new permanent head coach and his appointment is more or less done now that the Ministry has stated its stance.
The Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association has already given its nod to Grant’s appointment but they must give be given a final report by the selection committee before an official announcement is made by the end of the week.
The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, told Graphic Sports in an interview that Sports Minister Mahama Ayariga had approved on the things discussed between the GFA and Grant and that meant Grant could be outdoored as soon as possible.
Grant is expected to lead Ghana to the 2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea and he will be assisted by Maxwell Konadu who handled the team during the last four matches of the qualifiers.
In terms of remuneration, media sources claim the former Chelsea, West Ham and Portsmouth coach will earn a monthly pay of $50,000 and a $200,000 in signing-on fees.
