David Duncan hints at Ghana job

David Duncan
The former Porcupine Warriors coach, who has been without a job since March last year, says he can lead the Black Stars to the promise land

Former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan has dropped a hint that he is capable of leading Ghana national team.

The Black Stars will be without a head coach after February, following the expiration of Avram Grant's two-and-half-year contract.

A section of high ranking Ghanaians, including majority speaker of parliament Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, has advised Ghana FA to appoint a local coach to cut down expenses.

"I believe the people running our football are not foreigners, therefore, it's time to also reason that their own local coaches can do the job as Black Stars coach," Duncan told Happy FM.

"There's no player currently in the Black Stars setup that when I started coaching in 2002, was playing professional football with a big club abroad. The players in the team are not above my level of coaching because most of them passed through my hands during their formative years here in Ghana. I can coach them if only I have the opportunity," he added.

The executive committee members of the football association are expected to meet on Tuesday to discuss the criteria in selecting the next coach.

Aside Duncan, 1978 African best Player Karim Abdul Razak is interested in the job.
