Four Ghanaians tipped to save the Black Stars

Stories and facts

Charles Taylor, a former Black Stars player, has identified four ex-players whom he believes could positively impact the team's fortunes if appointed to the new technical committee. These individuals, Michael Essien, Stephen Appiah, Laryea Kingston, and Sammy Adjei, are called the 'four wise men' by Taylor. He suggests that Essien should be the head coach, with Laryea Kingston and Stephen Appiah as assistant coaches, and Sammy Adjei as the goalkeepers' trainer.

Speaking on Angel TV, Taylor expressed his opinion, stating, "It should be Laryea, Essien, Stephen Appiah, and Sammy Adjei. These are the four wise men. Essien should be the head coach because of what he is doing in Denmark, Laryea and Appiah as assistant coaches, and Sammy Adjei as the keepers’ trainer."

Taylor further proposed that Asamoah Gyan, the country's all-time top scorer, should assume the role of strikers' coach. He emphasized the importance of having a system that works and utilizing Gyan's expertise in coaching.

This suggestion comes in response to reports indicating that Otto Addo is the favored candidate for the vacant Black Stars coaching role, having scored the highest points during the interview process. The reports also suggest that the Ghana Football Association is considering appointing a technical team comprised of former Black Stars players, with Otto Addo as the head. Michael Essien is rumored to be the first deputy, Asamoah Gyan as the second deputy and team manager, and Adam Kwarasey as the goalkeepers' trainer.
