Former management committee chairman of the Black Stars Yaw Boateng Gyan has backed Frenchman Herve Renard for the vacant Black Stars coaching job and has implored government and the Ghana FA to break bank to capture the services of the former Morocco national team coach.
The Ghana FA terminated the contract of Charles Kwabla Akonnor together with his two deputies on Monday following Ghana’s uninspiring performances against Ethiopia and South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Ghana FA at its Executive Council meeting on Monday after the review and performance of the Black Stars in their last two games have changed direction to appoint a new coach.
A three-member committee led by Ghana FA Vice Chairman Mark Addo has been tasked to appoint a new coach in the next 72 hours.
But the Ministry of Youth and Sports cannot pay the $100,000 per month salary that Renard earns with Saudi Arabia where he has been the coach for the past two years.
However, according to Yaw Boateng Gyan, Ghana should be able to hire Herve Renard if the speculations are true despite his high earning salary.
“We should be able to hire Herve Renard who is earning $100,000 in Saudi Arabia if the speculations are true. If we cannot pay much money for any good or competent coach for the vacant coaching job then we are not prepared for laurels” he said.
