GFA Chief Kwesi Nyantakyi has officially confirmed that Black Stars helmsman Avram Grant will be in charge of the team at the 2017 Afcon in Gabon.
Media reports have been rife of Grant’s replacement prior to the tournament, but Nyantakyi’s submission will now put such reports and rumours to bed.
”We have not discussed at any meeting to replace Avram Grant. Maybe be it would be done in the future, but at the moment our focus is on the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Gabon,” Nyantakyi told members of the Ghana FA Congress on Monday.
”We have to plan well and ensure we present the best of players available. I said at WAFU recently that Ghana is going for the 2017 AFCON because Nigeria won it in 2013, while Ivory Coast did it in 2015, so 2017 is the turn of Ghana-These are the three power houses in West African football ”, he added.
Ghana will be looking forward to winning the next Afcon after been beaten by Ivory Coast in the final of the last tournament in Equatorial Guinea in 2015.
