Ex France captain Marcel Desailly NOT interested in Ghana's technical adviser job
Ex France captain Marcel Desailly has ruled himelf out of the running to become the new technical adviser for the Black Stars.
The 45-year-old is reported to be one of the favourites to land the job which is being created by the Ghana FA as part of measures to boost the technical team of the Black Stars.
The 1998 World Cup winner who expressed interest to coach Ghana back in 2010 is rumoured to have been offered the job in a meeting with Sports Minister Mahama Ayariga on Tuesday.
But Desailly’s representative, Jamil Maraby has dismissed these rumours and adds the former France captain will reject such an offer once the approach is made.
“The Minister visited Marcel Desailly’s Sports Complex and had discussions over how to improve facilities and infrastructure in the country,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“There was no point in time that the job of technical adviser was raised. He [Desailly] has also not been approached.
“But then even if he is approached, he will not accept the job.”
The Ghana FA is expected to make the appointment by the end of next week when the sub-committee completes its work in finding a competent technical hand to assist coach Kwesi Appiah.
The appointment of a technical adviser according to the GFA is in consultation with Appiah as part of plans to review and strengthen the team’s technical bench ahead of the commencement of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers which begins next month.
