Head coach of Wa All Stars, Enos Adepah is of the view that those local coaches are capable of managing the senior national team, the Black Stars of Ghana.
Avram Grant who is the head coach of the team has being publicly bashed by the football fandom for failing to create competition within the team.
As part of the preparations to the Russia 2018 FIFA world cup, Grant failed to grab all three points against the Cranes of Uganda at the Tamale Sport Stadium but many have related it to the fiction between the Ghana Football Association and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
The Israeli trainer have admitted that he will not extend his contract as the head coach of the Black Stars but many football endeavors are asking if Ghana will go in for an expatriate coach or appoint a local coach after Kwesi Appiah was painfully sacked by the GFA after failing to produce inspiring results at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
“I believe local coaches can manage the Black Stars but you need to be tactical. If you have these kinds of players and you stand afar, you might think managing them will be very difficult but it is not so because it is not about coaching alone but the managerial aspect is very important.” Adepa told Asempa Sports when he was asked if local coaches can handle the Black Stars.
“What I normally do is that, I try to get the players to play for me and win but it entails a lot but the most important thing is you being able to manage the players and I believe you will be a success.”
Wa All Stars who were crowned as champions in the 2015/16 season will be hoping to replicate a similar performance in this year’s G-6 competition and their head coach, Enos Adepa believes they are ready to compete for the tournament.
“We are ready for the competition because ones they have decided to add us to the competition we have to be ready for the competition. Kotoko are the defending champions of the competition but we are ready and we are prepared for them.”
Wa All Stars will be competing with Kotoko, Hearts of Oak, Aduana Stars, Medeama SC and Bechem United. The tournament starts on November 5th and ends December 4th.
