Ghana coach, Avram Grant has declared his desire to lead Ghana to end her title drought at major competitions. Grant told GNA Sports upon his arrival in Accra, late Tuesday that “My aim is to do well with the team and win matches. Of course, it includes winning trophies.” The Israeli who is expected to seal a two-year contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA), before his unavailing on Thursday, said he was ecstatic about his new role. “I am very happy to be here. It is a big privilege for me to be the new Ghana coach. I love the country and I have met very nice people here. The potential is there and I want to maximise that potential for us to do well.”
Grant previously worked with Michael Essien and Kevin Prince Boateng while at the helm at Chelsea and Portsmouth respectively, and insists he has a fair idea about the materials available for his journey. “I may have just arrived but I have been watching more of the players because they play in Europe and I am well informed about their respective potentials.” Grant’s contract spans December 1, 2014- February 28, 2017 and he is tasked to do well at the 2015 African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea and win the 2017 edition of the continent’s plum competition. Ghana is chasing her fifth Nations Cup trophy that spans over three decades.
