Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) vice president Fred Pappoe says the FA shirked in their responsibility to make sure Avram Grant followed his assigned job during his time as Black Stars coach. 

According to the soft spoken football administrator, they were taken apart by the Israeli's coaching credentials during their search for a new Black Stars coach hence handed him the job but the move later turned out sour after the former Chelsea trainer showed gross indiscipline toward Ghana FA officials.

“I was a member of the panel that selected him (Avram Grant), and up till now I have no regret recommending that he should be brought on board but there are two things," Pappoe said.

“If you recruit a person to do a job for you, you must make clear the terms of reference from the deliverables and then you must supervise and ensure that he is doing was he was brought on board for, ” he stated.

“So there was missing link somewhere and I will say it was an act of shirking of responsibility on our part to the extent that we didn’t manage him. So if does how we going to threat foreign coaches when we bring them board then we should not waste our time,” Pappoe ended.

Grant led the Black Stars to the finals of the 2015 AFCON but lost out to Ivory Coast on penalties just two months after his appointment and also Semi finals of the 2017 edition, where they lost to Cameroon 2-0.
