Avram Grant’s tenure with Ghana has hurt their chances of reaching the 2018 World Cup, according to Black Stars official Wilfred Osei.
Grant oversaw Ghana’s first two matches in the group stage qualifiers for Russia 2018, recording a goalless draw at home to Uganda and a loss away to Egypt.
The Israeli recently left his post with the Black Stars following their disappointing showing in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
Ghana are currently on the hunt for a new coach, and although it is mathematically still possible for them to qualify, Osei has admitted it will be a tough task.
“I can tell you, the job of the next Black Stars coach will be very, very challenging because of the situation Avram Grant has put us through”, Osei told Atinka FM, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
“He [Grant] has jeopardised our World Cup chances and will be difficult for any coach who takes over the Black Stars to be able to navigate his way through.”
