Four local coaches have been nominated by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports to be attached to the Black Stars during the World Cup in Qatar.
The coaches are former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak coaches, Prosper Nertey Ogum and Samuel Boadu, Black Meteors coach, Tanko Ibrahim and the assistant coach of the Black Starlets, Ignatius Osei Fosu.
Their inclusion in the team is to afford them the opportunity to understudy the technical handlers of the national team as to pick some useful lessons from the mundial.
According to the FA, sending the coaches to Qatar was part of their strategies to upgrade the capacity of the local coaches and equip them the modern trends in football.
Explaining why the coaches were selected, the FA said Ogum and Boadu were selected on the basis of their success on the local scene with Ogum winning the league while Boadu was picked for winning the MTN FA Cup last season.
“For Ibrahim Tanko and Ignatius Osei Fosu, they were selected due to their role as Technical Instructors for the Technical Directorate of the Ghana Football Association”.
The selected coaches are expected to fly out of the country next week together with the backroom staff for a training camp in Abu Dhabi before going to Doha for the World Cup.
