Ghana coach Avram Grant has spoken about life in charge of the four-time African champions.


The Israeli began his reign in December 2014, leading the Black Stars to the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea where they lost on penalties to Cote d’Ivoire.

“I think that I’m lucky,” Grant told Fifa.

“Because of football, I can be in so many places and see different cultures. And now in Ghana, I’m enjoying the challenge very much.

“I always say to myself and people of Ghana: ‘How can it happen, and with so much talent in Africa, not one team has reached the semi-final of the World Cup?’ Talent is not enough,you need more than talent. It’s a big challenge and I’m enjoying it.”

Grant has previously coached Israel, Chelsea, Portsmouth, West Ham and Serbian side Partizan Belgrade before heading to Thai outfit BEC Tero Sasana as technical director.

“The Ghana national team has very good players with a lot of talent,” Grant added.“We must remember always that talent is not enough – to maximize that talent is my job.”
