    Default Stars Coaching Job : Furore Over Desailly ?

    One name that has become prominent in the race for the Black Stars vacant coaching job is Ghanaian-born ex-France national captain, Marcel Desailly.

    But since the day the 1998 World Cup winner expressed his interest in the job in an interview with a French Sports daily, L’Equipe, it has sparked a major controversy with people, including coaches, rooting for or against him.

    And his reported meeting with Youth and Sports Minister, Ms Akua Sena Dansua, over issues that were still not clear appears to be giving rise to a belief that the former Chelsea defender is being imposed on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) as the next Black Stars coach.

    However, the impression created by the former Olympic Marseilles and AC Milan player that “everybody, from the minister to the head of the federation (GFA), seems okay (with my bid),” appear to have fuelled that belief.

    Officials at both the ministry and the FA have been economical with the flow of information on any such meetings to the extent that a planned interaction between the FA and the Chief of Staff at the Castle, Osu, today has been denied.

    Deputy Sports Minister, Nii Nortey Dua, who was outside the country when the Black Stars job became vacant following the failure of Serbian Milovan Rajevac to renew his two-year contract, appears not to be aware of any discussions.

    He told the Graphic Sports he would have to confer with his boss, Ms Akua Sena Dansua, who is also out of the country on official duty before he could make any statement.

    He, however, said he doubted whether the ministry would attempt to impose any coach on the FA since the two bodies collaborate on such matters.

    FA Spokesman, Randy Abbey, said he was unaware of any meeting with the Chief of Staff and was not in a position to speak on the matter.

    Radio commentators have launched scathing attacks on the Ghanaian-born Frenchman on the grounds that he has no coaching experience.

    But experts say Desailly has what it takes to manage the players who only need guidance at such a topflight football.

    Graphic Sports has learnt that Desailly could be confirmed coach of the Black Stars if his reported $70,000 a month salary is addressed.

    The monetary issue is what could stall his ambition since the FA may not agree anything more than what was given Coach Milo (45,000 Euro a month).

    Coach Milo was reported to have proposed $66,000 for his contract renewal but it was turned down, necessitating his departure to Saudi Arabia.

    Desailly’s huge personality as winner of the Euro 2000 with the French national team before he ended his career in 2006 makes him an overwhelming favourite to take over the Stars.

    He turned down the opportunity two years ago to enable him acquire the necessary certificate to qualify him for the job.

    As for Ghanaians and their mouths hmm, so much noise was made about Milo. Some called him a PE teacher other said he was no good and had no experience today Milo's name is hailed like he is Ghana's version of Jose Mourinho.
