The Ghana FA will consider a suggestion made by renowned journalist Moahammed Amin-Lamptey to strengthen the association’s technical directorate.

The Executive Committee will this week kick start the head hunting process to appoint a new Black Stars coach following the dismissal of Serbian trainer Goran Stevanovic.

But the Metro TV ace journalist during the innovative monthly press briefing in Cape Coast strongly suggested the technical directorate headed by Francis Oti-Akenteng be well resourced and equipped to be the department to undertake the appointment of coaches in future.

“I will urge the GFA to resource the technical directorate to the level they will be competent enough to play a major role in the appointment of coaches,” Lamptey said.

“Now that we are in the hunt of looking for a new coach I believe the technical directorate should be able to make recommendations based on strong analysis of who they believe should be the coach.”

The Ghana FA’s President Kwasi Nyantakyi in his response instinctively agrees with the suggestion made and says it is a point worth further exploring by the association.

“I agree with all that you (Lamptey) have said and I think it is something we will be seriously looking at.”
