Ghana Football Association ‘GFA’ made important decisions regarding the national football team in the next period which included appointing an interim coach to lead the Black Stars.

Maxwell Konadu has been named as the national team interim head coach after former coach Avram Grant’s employment contract expired following the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Konadu, who is a retired player and a former member of Ghana national team that won the bronze medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, will be assisted by team psychologist Professor J.K Mintah acting as deputy coach. The 44-year-old coach also served as an assistant to former coach Avram Grant.

After the emergency meeting which was held at the federation’s headquarters in Accra, a six-member committee headed by GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has been established to search for a new Black Stars coach.

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