Former Ghana assistant coach Maxwell Konadu has officially thrown his hat in the ring for the vacant Black Stars coaching position, as reported by JoySports.
Maxwell Konadu Makes Application For Black Stars Job
Konadu, currently at the helm of Nsoatreman FC, brings with him over a decade of experience, having served as assistant and agent to the four-time African champions from 2012 to 2022.
Maxwell Konadu was confident he could make the transition to head coaching and expressed his desire to take on the responsibility.
This position is vacant following the resignation of Chris Hughton, prompted by Ghana’s disappointing performance at the CAN 2023 in Ivory Coast, where he exited the tournament at the group stage.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has set Friday, February 2, 2024 at 11:59 PM as the deadline for interested candidates to submit their CVs.
While the timetable for the pre-selection remains uncertain, JoySports sources indicate that Maxwell Konadu and Michael Osei are among the indigenous coaches who have applied for the position.
One criterion to take into account is possession of a UEFA Pro coach license.
Coaches without this qualification will be automatically disqualified, raising questions about the suitability of Konadu and Osei in the selection process.
