The vacant Black Stars coaching job attracted 91 foreign coaches who tendered in their application to be handed the job.
Initial reports were that the total number of coaches to have applied for the vacant job was 71 but insiders have revealed that the number shot up to 95, including four local coaches.
The Black Stars top job became vacant after former Chelsea boss Avram Grant parted ways with Ghana, following the poor show in the 2017 AFCON.
A six-member committee was appointed by the Ghana FA to look for a new coach for the Black Stars. The committee opened application on 27th February to 10th March 21, 2017.
Reports claim top English coaches like Harry Redknapp and Garry Neveille as well as former Italy shot stopper Walter Zenga and Brazilian star Roberto Carlos are among the list of coaches who applied for the job.
Only four local coaches are reported to have applied for the job with fans’ favourite Kwesi Appiah enjoying massive media backing to return as Black Stars coach.
The shortlisted coaches for the vacant Black Stars job will be interviewed next week, the Ghana FA has confirmed. Five coaches have been shortlisted for the job.
Ghana FA vice-president George Afriyie has confirmed the interview process will begin next week.
“All I can say for now is that over 100 coaches have applied for the Black Stars job,” he told Asempa FM
“We shall shortlist the names and those will be interviewed next week. If everything goes well, we can have the whole process completed latest April and we’ll have a new coach in place.”
