In a post match conference in Tamale on Wednesday, Konadu said he was currently enjoying the caretaker role.

?I think the FA is in the process of recruiting a coach and we must leave them to finish with the exercise. We all want the best for Ghana and I trust the FA would make a good choice for the country?.

He commended the players for their high sense of discipline, determination and fortitude, which enabled them to win the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea on Wednesday.

Konadu said though Ghana lost the midfield battle to the Guineans in some stages of the game, the Stars used experience and hard work to bag all three points to top Group E on eight points.

?I concede that at some stages we lost concentration, we lost the midfield battle and allowed the Guineans to dictate the pace but we strategized and won the game and the most important thing in football is scoring goals?, he said.

He said the Syli Nationale were tactically disciplined but Ghana managed to overcome them; expressing the hope that the team would win the remaining two matches to qualify for the tournament in Morocco.

Ghana beat the visitors 3-1 with goals from Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew and Emmanuel Agyemang Badu wrapping up victory.
