Great Olympics icon and Black Stars B assistant coach, Godwin Attram is optimistic Ghana Football will bounce back within six years under the leadership of Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku.

The football-crazy West African nation have endured a turbulent period in the past years with both the senior and junior national teams all a pale shadow of their former selves.

The Black Stars, four-time winners of the Africa Cup of Nations, failed to reach the semi finals of the continental showpiece for the first time since 2006 after losing to Tunisia in the round of 16.

As if that was not enough, the senior men’s national team could not book a slot in Russia (FIFA World Cup) two years ago after qualifying for three consecutive occasions from 2006.

The story has not been different with the female teams with the Black Queens enduring a disappointing AWCON tournament, exiting at the group stages to underline the decline of the country in the Women’s game.

It is the same situation with the juvenile teams with near misses for the men’s side especially.But a confident Godwin Attram assured the situation will change for the better in the forseeable future.

“It is good that we have a new GFA President Kurt Okraku. Within four to six years, you will see that Ghana will bounce back in all national levels. You will see great players in our national team [Black Stars],” he told Accra-based Joy FM.
