The Ghana Football Association (GFA) prefers French coach, Hervé Renard as the new Black Stars coach but economic constraints has affected their decision.
Executive Council member Frederick Acheampong made the revelation on Akoma FM on Tuesday evening.
This comes in the aftermath of Chris Hughton’s dismissal following the appalling performance of the Black Stars at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
As a result, the GFA has set a five-member committee to recommend a new coach to the Executive Council of the Football Association.
“Hervé Renard has always been the preferred choice of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) since the departure of CK Akonnor.
“And while the coach is willing to coach Ghana, the economic circumstances make it difficult for us to hire him.”
Hervé Renard worked with Black Stars as the physical trainer under Claud Le Roy. He has also won the AFCON twice with Ivory Coast and Zambia in 2012 and 2015 respectively.
Hervé Renard is the current head coach of France Women’s national team and is preparing the side for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
