Ranking Member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports and Culture, Hon. Kobena Mensah Woyome has made a clarion call for the handlers of Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars to prioritise competence when selecting a coach for the team.
His calls follows the growing uncertainty over the future of Milovan Rajevac, who is facing the sack after a disappointing campaign in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon where the Black Stars exited the group stages.
The Serbian’s poor showing was highlighted by a humiliating 3-2 defeat in the hands of debutant Comoros who are the lowest ranked team in the competition.
In a group which contains Morocco, Gabon and Comoros Island, the Black Stars finished bottom of the group with just a point.
And Reacting to the Black Stars’ AFCON failure in an interview, Mensah Wayome said the country should consider competence.
“If we have to go for a foreign coach it should not employ a cheap coach but a very competent one worth the price,” the opposition legislator said.
“Our Committee sees the output of Black Stars at AFCON as terrible and unprecedented. Our defeat to Comoros makes the situation worse.
“The Sports, Youth Committee will be making a statement to Parliament on our horrible performance. I am so loaded but I want to download it at Parliament before coming out”, he added.
