Avram Grant, the former Black Stars coach says that coaching the Ghana National football team was one of the toughest tasks he has done in all his coaching career.
The Israeli tactician performed the duty of the manager of the Black Stars for from December 2014 to January 2017, over a period of 2 years.
Under his supervision the Black stars finished 2nd at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations and 4th at the 2017 AFCON.
The former West Ham United and Chelsea boss says, “The Ghana FA asked me to do my best for the Black Stars and also try to help (locally), which I tried very much. How can I do it (stay in Ghana) if the players are playing abroad before I came?’’
He spoke about his effort for the team saying, “I went the extra mile for the national team of Ghana, (more) than I did before for a club. Coaching a national team is not easy. I didn’t go to Ghana as a tourist, stay in the country and spend a good time.”
He added: “I could stay in the country, spend a good time and during the weekend, I go and watch a local league (game). But when I’m in Europe, I need to fly every two days to see a player. The best and experienced players for the national team are all based abroad.”
