Ghana are without a coach following the expiration of Avram Grant’s contract end of last month.

Interested candidates are currently submitting applications to a six-member committee, with over 70 CVs already collected, according to reports.

“Bashiru Hayford expressed interest in the job so I have submitted his application and supporting documents to the Ghana FA," Hackman told Ghanasoccernet.com.

“On my part, Hayford is the perfect one to replace Avram Grant. He has achieved a lot in the local scene with Ashanti Gold, Kotoko and other clubs. He has also managed a couple of the junior national teams in the past and did great job with them too,” he added

Goal understands that the successful candidate will be announced by end of March.
