Veteran Ghanaian coach, JE Sarpong, has asked the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to wait for the technical report of the Black Stars coach before appointing a new coach.
The Mark Addo-led 5-man committee set up by the GFA was tasked with the responsibility of finding the next coach for the Black Stars, barely 24 hours after the sacking of Chris Hughton.
However, JE Sarpong said the GFA must not be in a rush to appoint a new coach until they have read the report of Chris Hughton on why the team failed to perform at the 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast before they can move forward with appointing his replacement.
“You have gone to an AFCON and have failed woefully, and instead of you apologising, you have used the backdoor to appoint a committee to look for a new coach. So when the new coach comes, what technical report is he going to use to do his work?”
“We need the technical report to see why things happened like that in Ivory Coast. We have not received the report, and you want to appoint a new coach. You haven’t apologised yet; the mother body and the players are the ones now taking responsibility for what happened in the AFCON,” JE Sarpong said in an interview with Rainbow Sports.
He added that Mark Addo does not have the technical expertise to find a good and competent coach for the Black Stars.
“Mark Addo is the same person who brought Milovan, and it ended in a disaster in Cameroon, so why is he leading another pack to look for a new coach? We have sidelined the experts and are bringing in people with no technical knowledge to be coaches.”
