‘I did my best’ - LeRoy


The Frenchman declined the offer of a two-year contract with the Ghana Football Association before the GFA decided to terminate his existing deal, which expires on June 30th.

He told the French news agency AFP that he was leaving with his head high.

“I think I’ve given everything that I could give; I think it’s for the best.”

“Everyone thought I’d signed for another two years but no, the federation made me an offer, that’s all,” he said.

LeRoy, who took over from the Serbian Ratomir Dujkovic as Ghana coach after the 2006 World Cup, cited personal reasons for turning down the offer.

KickOffGhana.com understands from credible sources that LeRoy turned down the two-year extension because the GFA had not offered him improved financial terms.
