committee are not sold on his ability to transform the national team as well as his pay package while the other two did not impress enough to be considered for the job.

Others have also stated their reservations about appointing a substantive coach so close to the staging of next year’s AFCON in Morocco with Ghana poised to qualify in group E.

With the current indecision,it looks like Maxwell Konadu could still be in charge of the national team when it reassembles for the final round of qualifiers in November against Uganda in Kampala and Togo in Tamale.
