Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Sannie Daara, has defended the decision by Black Stars coach, Avram Grant, to travel abroad to monitor Ghanaian players.
The Israeli trainer has been highly criticised by some Ghanaian football fans for his frequent travels outside to monitor foreign-based players instead of assessing the performance of local players.
Parrying those criticisms, however, Daara told Class Sports that “Avram Grant has been in town going through very punishing monitoring schedules locally. In one week, he watched a league match on Wednesday, [on] Thursday he travelled to Cape Coast, [on] Friday he watched a match, [on] Saturday he travelled to Kumasi to watch another match. He is obviously going to monitor players. As you are aware, some of the leagues have already started, like in Belgium where we have about 10 Ghanaian players and he also wants to see them.”
