Financial limitations make it difficult to appoint Herve Renard as the future coach of the Black Stars, according to a member of the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) Executive Council.

According to Frederick Acheampong, the French coach has long been coveted by the GFA, but the transfer is nearly unfeasible due to his contractual obligations.

Following Chris Hughton’s dismissal following the nation’s awful AFCON 2023 performance, the Black Stars are currently without a coach.

After drawing with both Egypt and Mozambique and losing to Cape Verde, Ghana was eliminated from the competition without a single victory in Group B.

According to a GFA statement, the next Ghanaian coach needs to fulfil a number of requirements, including as having a winning track record and a philosophy of play that is in line with Ghanaian football culture.

Along with having over 15 years of coaching experience, the highest football licence in the world, and a history of squad rebuilding, organisation, and developing new talent are other requirements.

The GFA has been urged by several Ghanaians to give Renard priority. Renard won the AFCON with Zambia in 2012 and the Ivory Coast in 2015.

Frederick Acheampong, however, responded to this by stating that budgetary limitations make it difficult to hire the Frenchman.

The member of the GFA Executive Council told Akoma FM, as reported by 3news, “Herve Renard has always and will remain the primary priority of the FA.”

But as I’ve already said, it’s very tough to hire him given all the factors, especially our nation’s economic situation.

Jurgen Kohler, a German coach, has applied to be considered for the vacant position as coach of the Black Stars.

It is said that the FIFA World Cup champion from 1990 applied for the position following discussions with the GFA. The GFA-established committee of five people is rumoured to have contacted Kohler in an attempt to find Ghana’s next head coach.

The 58-year-old is rumoured to have applied after speaking with GFA vice president Mark Addo about the position.
