Management Member of the Black Stars rubbishes imposing players on Avram Grant



Management Committee Vice Chairman of the Black Stars, Wilfred Osei Palmer has rubbishes rumours that the management committee of the team is imposing players on Avram Grant.

There was a widespread report that coach Avram Grant has called-up a 18-man squad ahead of the 2017 AFCON in Gabon without some of his key players to start training at the St. Thomas Aquinas Park.

The report was quickly rubbished by the Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association claiming that the circulating squad is not certified.

And as the squad list keeps delaying, reports emanated that, the coach has decided to keep it confidential due to interference by some of the team’s management members to include players he didn’t select.

“We are not imposing any player on the coach of the team.” Osei Parmer told Asempa FM.

“We have decided to name the squad in the mandatory period of CAF due to strategic reasons.

“The most important list is the final 23 who will make it to Gabon not the 30 man provisional list. The head coach is still assessing some players before he names the list on December 31.” He added.

The squad list is supposed to be announced on December 31 before the team travels to Dubai for the final phase of the preparations.
