Igesund in running for Black Stars’ job

Posted: 28 December 2012 Time: 02:56 pm

Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Gordon Igesund is among the 10 coaches that have been short-listed for the position of Ghana national team coach.

No Ghanaian has applied for the Black Stars’ job which has become vacant following the abrogation of Claude Le Roy’s contract by the GFA last week.

Igesund yesterday confirmed he is on the Ghana FA’s short list, but said that while he felt privileged by the attention from the GFA, he is keeping his options open.

Igesund, who has been offered coaching jobs in the PSL, Austria and Saudi Arabia, said: “The Ghana job excites me as a brilliant challenge at the right time of my career.”

Igesund, who has won the Premier Soccer League title with four clubs - Manning Rangers, Orlando Pirates, Santos and Sundowns - was offered the post two years back and is highly regarded by the Ghana Football Association.

The General Secretary Kofi Nsiah said the head-hunting mission has taken the Federation across the world in search of a replacement that would supervise the Black Stars’ friendly match against the Socceroos of Australia on May 23 in Sydney.

“It is our desire to have a coach before the game against Australia, so that he can have a fair idea of the team.”

The Stars will begin their 2010 World Cup/Africa Cup qualifier against Libya on June 1.

Le Roy, who led the Stars to a bronze feat at the Ghana 2008 African Cup of Nations, ceases to be head coach after May 30 after a mutual agreement with the GFA.

I just wonder how well this Ndivhuwo clown is doing at school. He spends the whole day (and the better part of every night) in the lab writing irrelevant rubbish on this website. Advice Ndivhuwo, a lot of people are counting on you back at Lambani, you should spend more time reading books (through which you will reap in the future) rather than talking soccer, because in the latter, we ALL know you are hopeless. Just one statement everyday, Motsepe FC, Moptsepe FC, as if they buy your underwear. Wake up, bro.
