Former Ghanaian International, Sarfo Gyamfi has called on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to consider appointing Mas-Ud Didi Dramani as new Black Stars coach.
The GFA on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 confirmed the sacking of 68-year-old Serbian, mMilovan Rajevact, as coach of the senior national team following a disastrous campaign at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Ghana exited the tournament at the group phase with no win and just a point.
Following this, names of native coaches including Ibrahim Tanko, Mohammed Polo, Otto Addo, Prosper Nartey Ogum, Didi Dramani and others have emerged as persons being considered for the job.
And, the member of the Black Stars 1992 AFCON winning team believes the ex-Asante Kotoko tactician has what it takes to manage the stars.
“I prefer Didi Dramani as the next Black Stars head coach because during his stint with Kotoko, he was obedient to views and advice…,” Sarfo Gyamfi said on Onua TV as monitored by Angelonline.com.gh.
The former defender also shared the view that, it will be difficult for the stars to end their 40-year wait for an AFCON trophy if home based players are not given equal opportunities in the team.
“Black Stars without local-based players, it will be difficult for us to win trophies…,” he added.
Mas-Ud Didi Dramani who once coached the Ghana U-17 National team, Asante Kotoko and Nordsjaelland in Denmark is currently club without a club.
Milovan Rajevac returned to Ghana in September 2021 on a one-year contract subject to performance replacing CK Akonnor.
He was reappointed as Black Stars boss in September 2021 on a year contract subject to performance after first coaching the team from 2008-2010.
The Serbian trainer guided the team to book a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs where Ghana has been paired with Nigeria in a two legged affairs for a place in Qatar.
