Exclusive: Former Cameroon National Team Trainer Set To Be Named Black Stars Head Coach

The race for the next Black Stars head coach appears to have ended in the fastest way possible with former Cameroon National Team trainer top of the wish list, 442gh.com exclusively reports.

Having recently parted ways with Charles Kwablah Akunnor as the head coach of the Black Stars, the Ghana Football Association tasked a 3-man committee to officially get a new trainer for the Ghana senior national team.

The committee, led by Samuel Addo and Dr Randy Abbey, has been given a 72-hour grace period to find a new trainer for the Black Stars.

The search, reportedly limited to Ghanaian trainers, appears to have settled on the much travelled Ibrahim Tanko, who played a key role in the qualification of Cameroon for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The retired Ghana international comes in with a long CV led by stints in the German Bundesliga, Danish Super League and the Black Stars itself.
