The Ghana Football Association could put to bed the local frustration that Black Stars coach Avram Grant is not resident in the country.
Vice president George Afriyie has moved swiftly to purchase a house for the former Chelsea coach. Though, this may seem like a smart move that wouldn’t necessarily mean Grant is going to live in Ghana.
Afriyie’s comments indicate that the Ghana FA is more concerned with saving money, in that rentals are too high, creating another public outcry about the prices paid for Grant’s rent and massive hotel bills whenever he’s touring with the team in the country.
“If you own it, it’s much better than renting it because if you look at previous places where we put Black Stars coaches, you are looking at paying $4,000 or 5,000 a month,” Afriyie told Starr FM.
“Why don’t we use that money as a mortgage to pay down for a house for the Black Stars coach? This would be a cost effective measure,” he added.
