Veteran Israeli coach, Avram Grant, will start work as the coach of Ghana’s national team on Monday (tomorrow) after the Ghana FA confirmed that the former Chelsea coach has been appointed.

GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi revealed that the former Portsmouth coach’s contract will start on 1 December which means he starts work tomorrow.

Grant was endorsed as the man to lead the Black Stars to the 2015 Africa Nations Cup (AFCON) in Equatorial Guinea in January following approval of the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Mahama Ayariga.

The GFA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) ratified Grant’s appointment at its next meeting on Thursday which paved the way for him to start work.

The approval as successor to Kwasi Appiah, who was relieved of his job as national coach in September, follows two months of meetings and interviews of candidates for the permanent post.
