Former coach of Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, David Duncan reckons that coaching the Black Stars is not beyond him if the management of the national are also locals just like him.
The Ghana Football Association are yet to announce the successor to coach Avram Grant after both parties mutually decided against continuing with the team just after the end of this year’s Africa Nations Cup in Gabon.
Many local football pundits have called on the nation’s football governing body to consider appointing an indigenous coach to lead the team.
Speaking on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports, outspoken David Duncan, who many believe to be in the bracket of local coaches who should be considered for the vacant position, was keen to point out that most of the players in the Black Stars now have passed through his tutelage one way or the other hence it wouldn’t be out of place for him to coach them despite their playing levels now.
“I believe the people running our football are not foreigners, therefore it’s time to reason that in that breath, local coaches can do the job. There’s no player currently in the Black Stars that when I started coaching in 2002 was playing in abroad. The players in the team are not above me to handle because most of them passed through me in their formative years.”
