Ibrahim Tanko To Replace Late Coach Yusif Abubakar at Black Meteors-Reports

Reports in the Ghanaian media have suggested that Black Stars assistant manager Ibrahim Tanko is set to head the national U23 of Ghana after the sudden demise of Coach Yusif Abubakar earlier last week.

Yusif Abubakar was the substantive head coach of the Ghanaian Olympic team before his sudden death after a short illness and is now set to be replaced by  the 41- year old Ibrahim Tanko.

The team is expected to welcome Togo in early December at the Baba Yara Sports stadium  for the 2020 Olympic Games qualifiers before the demise of the head coach but reports in the various Ghanaian media suggested that Ibrahim Tanko has been handed the nod for the vacant managerial slot.

Tanko is the current assistant manager of the Black Stars but will not have to step down the ladder to head the National U23 team less than 3 weeks to the crunch qualifier.
