Controversial football administrator Takyi Arhin has questioned government’s decision to appoint Bashir Hayford as head coach of the Black Queens.
The CAF/FIFA two-man Liaison team on Monday appointed Bashir Hayford as head coach of the Ghana women’s national team, the Black Queens, with Mercy Tagoe named as his deputy.
Several football advocates expressed their displeasure with the decision by the two-man Liaison team who have been given the mandate by government to lead football reforms in the country.
Speaking on Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Takyi Arhin believes the appointment of the veteran trainer was a mistake on the part of the Liaison team as there are much more competent budding trainers who can adequately do the job.
“I don’t understand this recycle thing. We have young and competent coaches who can do this job adequately. They are hungry to enrich their CVs so why not give them chance instead of recycling the same old coaches.
“Why appoint Bashir Hayford when we have these people doing great job.”
Meanwhile, Coach Hayford has commenced training with the team at the Ghanaman Soccer School of Excellence in Prampram ahead of the forthcoming African Women Nations Cup which will be hosted by Ghana.
