The Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Oti Akenteng, has disclosed he never believed former Black Stars trainer Avram Grant was capable of organising a coaching course for local coaches because he never saw him as an instructor.
The Israeli trainer, when appointed as Ghana coach in November 2014, was charged with organising training courses aimed at improving Ghanaian coaches.
Grant and the GFA parted ways after a disappointing 2017 AFCON outing in Gabon and speaking on the former Chelsea manager's failure to have conducted the sessions, Mr Akenteng said he was not surprised with Grant's failure to impart his experience to local coaches.
"Since he is not an instructor, I knew he was not going to be able to conduct the training seminar, though he could have conducted seminars and workshops with his influential trait. But even that could not materialise either,” he told Class Sports.
"So now with the appointment of our own [Kwesi Appiah] and his promise to do that [coaching course], why won't I believe he can achieve it? Remember in his first stint with the national team he showed glimpses of his readiness to conduct such programmes; so we will sit and hold discussions with him."
