The former Ghana FA chief claims the Israeli has enough grounds to decide against living in the country
The Israeli took over the Black Stars in December 2014, leading the team to finish as runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations a month later, but has received public backlash in recent times for his insistence on staying abroad to monitor European-based players.
“We have all gone through this,” Lepowura MND Jawula, a former GFA president, told Starr FM
“I had a lot of coaches from the time I was the vice chairman of the FA to when I was the president. There is no team to coach in Ghana so why will he be here?
“It is better he goes to clubs to see what he can do about those who are playing outside, watch some of their matches, encourage and monitor them. But to come and stay in Ghana just for the sake of living in Ghana might not be very useful.
“When the league is ongoing, the GFA can look at [the issue at that point] because he might get a player that will help Ghana.”
Former Premier League Board chairman Welbeck Abra-Appiah, the president of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana, KwabenaYeboah and Ebusua Dwarfs coach Joseph Emmanuel Sarpong are some top personalities to have criticised the 60-year-old coach’s decision.
