Ghana national team coach Avram Grant spoke about his future with the Black Stars after he his team finished in fourth place and failed to win the 2017 African Cup of Nations.

The former Chelsea coach lost to Cameroon 2-0 in the semi-finals and then lost third place to Burkina Faso 1-0.

Grant’s contract will end in a few weeks from now, therefore, his departer seems close. “I am very much aware that my contract comes to an end in a few weeks and I am looking forward to speaking to the authorities who brought me here,” he explained.

The Israeli manager started coaching Ghana in 2014 on a two-year contract by the Ghana Football Association to win the 2017 AFCON. He received his new role one month before the 2014 AFCON and went with the team to the final match but lost to Ivory Coast on penalties.

“It’s obviously a big disappointment to us all but sometimes that is how football is,” he added. “We missed some chances in the competition but I think Ghana has a bright future. We conceded four goals in the competition and three of them were set-pieces. We need to look at the details.”

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
