Ghana Appoint Interim Head Coach

Maxwell Konadu has been installed as the caretaker coach until the Ghana Football Association can find a permanent successor to Israeli coach Avram Grant.

The Ghana FA previously agreed for Grant’s contract to be mutually terminated after the Cup of Nations, but the former Chelsea and West Ham coach’s contract was up yesterday anyway. The FA no longer saw a bright future for the national team under his reign and will now undergo a search for a new head coach.

Grant was appointed Ghana’s head coach in 2014 and helped the country to a runners-up finish in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations and a fourth place finish at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

Konadu, 44, is no stranger to a coaching job. He has coached Ghana’s Under-20 and Under-23 sides in addition to holding an assistant coaching job for the national team. When Kwesi Appiah left the head coaching position after the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Konadu, in fact, became interim head coach until Grant was hired.

Aiding Konadu as the interim assistant coach will be Professor Joseph Mintah.

On top of that, Mintah will continue his role as the national team’s psychologist.
