Black Stars job most challenging of all – Grant

Ghana's coach Avram Grant leads his team

Black Stars head coach, Avram Grant has admitted coaching the senior national team of Ghana is the toughest challenge of his coaching life.

The Israeli trainer has had stints with English Premier League clubs – Chelsea and Portsmouth and his native Israel’s national team.

Grant, who’s in the final year of his 18-month contract with Ghana said, coaching the four-time Africa Cup of Nations champions has been the most difficult task of his life.

“I wanted to come to Africa and coach a team as I knew the continent has enormous football talents,” he told the media before Ghana’s last AFCON 2017 qualifier match against Rwanda.

“With this pool of talent, I found it difficult to understand why no African country has made it beyond the Quarter finals of a world cup.

“And this got me to accept the Black Stars challenge and hope to make history with Ghana if we qualify to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup,” he added
