Local coach for Black Stars: Worlanyo Agrah advocates internship

first_imgThe CEO of the National Sports Council, Worlanyo Agrah says only a comprehensive training plan for local coaches can ensure that a Ghanaian takes over the Black Stars coaching job in the near future.The debate over whether Ghanaian coaches are ready to handle the Black Stars has continued especially after Hebert Addo’s failure at the CHAN tournament.Aside the Black Stars, at least four local teams are being handled by expatriate coaches.Mr Agrah, an experienced sports administrator thinks that the nation’s reliance on foreign coaches must end at some point.“We cannot continue to rely on foreign coaches for all of our divisions so we must think of developing our own,” he said.Mr Agrah said some training courses have already been undertaken in the country and that about six or at most 12 of the beneficiaries of those courses should be “sent out on attachment for maybe a period of six months or one year to learn the tricks of the game.” Source: Joy Sports/Ghanalast_img read more
