Hamburg SV youth coach, Otto Addo, has criticised the criteria being used by the Ghana FA to seek a replacement for former coach, Kwasi Appiah.

The ex-Black Stars midfielder, who played for Ghana in the 2006 World Cup, said the FA cannot secure the services of a new coach with the current criteria.

“The process that the Ghana Football Association is using to select the new coach for the national team [Black Stars] is cumbersome and out of modern day football,” Addo told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

“No good coach will apply for the job this way, because all the good coaches are not ready to apply but they can only be head-hunted, contacted and subsequently appointed.”

He added: “You [Ghana] have to go out and search for a better coach who best suits the job and negotiate than to go by this outmoded method.”

The 39-year-old coach played 15 times for Ghana and made his debut in a 5-0 victory over Eritrea on 28 February 1999.
