Former Ghanaian international Augustine Ahinful tells the Ghana Football Association [GFA] The decision to exclude Bernhard Lippert from the three-person committee looking for a new head coach for the Black Stars is worrying and confusing.
The executive council of the country’s football regime announced the resignation of CK Akonnor and his two assistants on Monday.
This came from a review of the Black Stars’ two games that were played in qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
However, the statement also stated that a three-person committee was set up to agree on a new gaffer by the end of Thursday.
And according to Ahinful, the decision to leave out the German coach, who is the technical director of the Ghanaian football association [GFA] from the committee is worrying and confusing.
“I am a little disappointed and concerned about being the technical director of the Ghanaian Football Association [GFA]”Bernhard Lippert is not part of the three-person committee that was put together to look for a new coach,” said the former Ashgold striker Joy messages.
“We’re talking about technical issues here and he’s supposed to be part of this committee.
“I just hope they can agree with the committee on a good coach for the Black Stars,” he added.
The three (3) members of the committee consist of Vice President Mark Addo, the Chairman of the Upper East Regional Football Association, Alhaji Salifu Zida and Dr. Randy Abbey.
After playing two games, Ghana are in 3rd place with three points. The Black Stars will continue their qualification next month with a double header against Zimbabwe.
