Renard to replace Grant if he leaves Ghana job


Former Zambian manager Herve Renard has emerged as strong favorites to replace Ghana coach Avram Grant if he decides to take up the vacant position at premier league side Swansea.

The Welsh side sacked manager Garry Monk yesterday after a poor start to the season and reports claim that chairman Huw Jenkins is strongly in favour of the former Chelsea and Portsmouth manager to be appointed.

According to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) could be forced into acting fast before they are taken by surprise if Grant is named as coach of the English side by going into talks with the Frenchman who was recently sacked by Ligue 1 outfit Lille.

Before Monk’s sacking, he guided the club to the Europa Cup last season producing some breathetaking football along the way and expectations were high coming into the 2015/16 season.

The arrival of Ghana international Andre Ayew gave the side a fresh look and they started the season well, beating Manchester United and drawing Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge but they soon fell apart as they could only muster three victories out of 14 matches which left them on 15th with 14 points.
