The former national star reckons an indigenous coach will do a better job with the Black Stars

Former Ghana international Willie Klutse believes a local coach will be the best man to handle the Black Stars.

The four-time African champions are on the search for a new coach, with Avram Grant set to bring his reign to an end at the close of the month.

“We have seen lots of white coaches. I think it is time we give the black man a chance as well,” Klutse told Ghana Sports Newspaper.

“I believe when a Ghanaian is given the job, he can do it better. We saw what Kwesi Appiah did when he was given the chance.

“I believe in local coaches. There are lots of them in the local league and even outside the country.”

Few locals have been linked to the job so far, whereas several foreign names have been rumoured to be eyeing the vacant position.

Former Black Stars striker Ibrahim Tanko has been mentioned in relation to the role, same as ex-winger Otto Addo, who represented Ghana at the 2006 Fifa World Cup in Germany.

Former France captain of Ghanaian descent Marcel Desailly is reportedly a forerunner, while Uganda coach of Serbian origin Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic and Morocco coach Herve Renard, a Frenchman, have also been named.

According to Ghana FA vice president George Afriyie, the Executive Committee will convene next week to commence discussions on Grant's successor.
