David Duncan reveals 'striking' difference between coaching club sides and the national teams

Published on: 17 April 2020

Assistant coach of the Black Stars David Duncan has revealed that there is a huge difference in coaching a club side and the national team. 

According to the ex-Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko gaffer, when it comes to leading a club team, there is ample time to 'disseminate your ideas' to the team whilst with the national team you don't have the luxury of time.

"A lot. The striking one is the fact that with club sides you have ample time to disseminate your ideas etc into the team," he told soka25east.com.

"Whilst with national teams there is very little time for that. And this has the potential of affecting the general performance of the team even though it may comprise the best materials available to the nation."

Duncan led the Black Starlets to the 2005 World Cup in Peru and was also the coach of the national U-23 team, the Black Meteors in 2011.

He is now deputy to C.K Akonnor at the senior national team, the Black Stars.
