“The Executive Council has formed a three (3) Member Committee made up of Vice President Mark Addo, Upper East Regional Football Association Chairman, Alhaji Salifu Zida and Dr. Randy Abbey to find a Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours,” reads the statement.

Reports in Ghanaian media indicate that Herve Renard has been in talks with GFA officials about taking over country’s national team.

Several high-profile coaches have been linked with the vacant position at Black Stars, including former Ghana international Ibrahim Tanko, who has also been mentioned, but latest reports reveal that Renard is in pole position to land the job.
