Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku has revealed that his outfit is working on building the capacity of local coaches.
According to the FA capo, who is almost a year in office, plans are being made to fly some local coaches to established clubs in Europe for attachments.
“I think we are very clear as to where we want to take this sports, we know we have challenges by way of coaching for which reason we advertised for interested applicants for the portfolio of the technical director which we will soon announce," he told Tv3.
“We know that we need to support our coaches and help them to create learning platforms to enable them enrich themselves and that is the only way they can also impact on the players”.
“We are also creating opportunities for them to go on attachment in Europe and other well-established football jurisdictions."
The Ghana Football Association is yet to name a technical director for the national teams, and Mr. Okraku reveals the FA wants to build a solid national team with a common philosophy right from the junior teams.
“We are very clear that we want to be competitive from the youth level to the Black Stars. I will leave the playing philosophy to the technical director when he takes his post, having done all the analysis that one could think about, we are very clear in our minds how we want our games to be by way of philosophy,” he said.
