The Ghana FA needs to have “direction and policies” if they are to succeed at international level, according to former Black Stars coach Avram Grant.

Grant almost ended Ghana’s long wait for a fifth Africa Cup of Nations crown when he took the national team to the final of the competition in Equatorial Guinea two years ago, having taken up the job just a couple of months prior.

The Black Stars’ showing at the most recent AFCON in Gabon earlier this year was far less impressive, with the team finishing a disappointing fifth.

This saw Grant and the Ghana FA part ways. The Israeli insists that the West African country has great talent at its disposal, but needs better leadership from the football authorities at the top.

“With these great talents they deserve a treatment in the highest level today because they have the talents so if you look at the under 17, 20, 23 and even the local teams they are blessed with talents,” he told the BBC, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.

“Key subject is about direction and policies and Ghana need to continue with the process that it started with.

“Germany is a typical example and in 2014 they won the World Cup because they paid much attention to policies and directions from scratch.”

Ghana are set to name Grant’s successor before the end of the month.
