Marcel Desailly still harbours Ghana coaching dream

The 1998 World Cup winner with France has revealed that he is still interested in the Black Stars coaching job

Former France captain Marcel Desailly says he is still harbouring the ambition of coaching Ghana in the near future.

Desailly was one of the shortlisted candidates for the Black Stars job when it became vacant after Serbian Milovan Rajevac left after leading Ghana to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The two-time Uefa Champions League winner with AC Milan pulled out from the race citing delays on the part of the Ghana FA in selecting a suitable person for the job among other issues. 

The former Marseille defender says he is now ready and coaching Ghana can potentially happen one day in the future.

 “Coaching the Black Stars, potentially it can happen. I hope to give back the experiences I have had with France as coach of Ghana one day,” Desailly told CNN.

Desailly, who is Ghanaian by birth, played for France and he was part of the team that won the 1998 World Cup, the European Championships in 2000 and the 2001 Confederations Cup.
