Ghanaian football legend Mohammed Polo has waded into the growing discussion surrounding the approval of a new technical brain as the Ghana Football Association beefs up the technical department of the senior men’s national team, Black Stars.
It would be recalled that on May 31 2021, the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association agreed to the request of head coach C.K Akonnor for the appointment of a second Assistant coach to further strengthen the technical team of the Black Stars.
The new Assistant coach, Patrick Greveraars is a UEFA License A holder with over 25 years of worldwide top football experience.
Patrick Greveraars is one of two coaches who were recommended by C.K Akonnor in his quest to strengthen the technical team ahead the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the 2020 Africa Cup of Nations.
Greveraars is currently in Ghana to assist the team with the upcoming International friendly matches and also to finalize talks ahead of his appointment.
He will team up with Coach C.K Akonnor and David Duncan in Cape Coast to prepare for the friendly matches.
Sharing his thoughts on this, Mohammed Polo, a former Africa Cup Of Nations winner iterated that he is scandalized by the fact that the country is still dependent on white coaches.
“The way things are going show very clearly that we are not capable and I feel sad for Ghana Football because we cannot do things on our own without a white person. It’s very unfortunate where our football is moving towards,” Polo told OTEC Fm
“The second assistant to C.K is coming to take over from him (C.K.), that is how I see it and I feel very sad for C.K. Akonnor” He added
The Black Stars are currently camping in Cape Coast to prepare for the two matches against Morocco on Tuesday, June 8 and Ivory in Cape Coast on Saturday, June 12, 2021.
