Ghana coach Avram Grant chides critics

Ghana coach Avram Grant chides critics


Avram Grant has lashed out at critics of his administration asking them to focus on football and not the drama surrounding the game.

The Israeli manager and his players have been criticized severally over the huge amounts they receive as bonuses.

Grant in particular has also been accused of spending less time in Ghana to scout for local talents.

But he told critics to focus on the game if the country is to regain its glory as the continent’s finest side.

“If this Nation will concentrate on the football and not the … and just the football because there is a lot of passion, we can reach higher, high level. It is a long term target but it is achievable.”

Avram Grant’s side plays its return leg against Mozambique on Sunday in the 2017 AFCON qualifier. The Black Stars beat Mozambique 3-1 in the first leg.
