Hervé Renard, the two-time AFCON winning coach says he cannot refuse an offer to coach Ghana’s Black Stars.
After winning AFCON titles with Zambia and the Ivory Coast, the coach has been linked with a return to Ghana to take charge of the Black Stars. Avram Grant, the Former Chelsea and West Ham United manager and the present Black Stars coach is expected to leave the Ghana coach post in February after the 2017 AFCON.
Resultantly, the seat will be vacant and GFA Ghana Football Association will be looking for a replacement. The French coach, Renard is a strong candidate though Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic is also mentioned as a possible appointee.
In 2008, Renard acted as assistant to veteran Claude le Roy emanates fond memories and he says that he can’t refuse to return to the West African country. Hervé Renard said, “In life we never know what can happen. I will never refuse an offer from the Ghana federation depending on the timing, of course. When you are under contract it is not possible. But one day it will be nice for me. I will never forget that it was where I started”.
The French coach further added that there he got a chance to learn a lot with Ley Roy. He doesn’t think even if he won the AFCON twice, he had a better team than the Ghana team of 2008. This team was fantastic. When Renard first saw Essien, Muntari, he was impressed because they were fantastic. We were unlucky. Even now he remembers everything in the semi-finals and how Cameroon scored.
Ghana’s National Team is gunning to end their 34-year AFCON drought with Israeli coach Avram Grant. However his side must first progress from a tough group including record-winners Egypt, old foes Uganda and the Eagles of Mali.
