Over hundred coaches have expressed interest in the Black Stars coaching job that was left vacant by the departure of former head coach Avram Grant.

The ex-Chelsea boss held a meeting with the top hierarchy of the Ghana FA in Accra on Tuesday after which his departure was announced.

Grant’s contract officially expires at the end of February 2017 and the GFA’s statement confirmed his contract would not be renewed.

It has also been confirmed that the Israeli will see out his contract which means he will only qualify for February 2017 salary.

He was tasked to win the AFCON 2017 title for Ghana but he led the team to finish fourth which compelled the Ghana FA to seek an end to their contract.

The “hot” job has attracted some of the top coaches in the world with Herve Renard and Milutin Sredojevic leading the race to replace Avram Grant.

Former France international Willy Sagnol and former Holland international George Boateng have expressed interest in the Black Stars job.

The Ghana Football Association is yet to make a statement on the appointment of Grant’s successor but it is expected that assistant coach of the team, Maxwell Konadu will take charge until a new head coach is appointed.
