|Former Ghana coach Avram Grant|
The Israeli trainer was manager of the Ghana senior national team for two years- from December 2014 to January 2017.
He guided the Black Stars to finish second at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations and fourth at the 2017 tournament in Gabon.
“The Ghana FA asked me to do my best for the Black Stars and also try to help (locally), which I tried very much.
“How can I do it (stay in Ghana) if the players are playing abroad before I came?
“I went the extra mile for the national team of Ghana, (more) than I did before for a club. Coaching a national team is not easy. I didn’t go to Ghana as a tourist, stay in the country and spend a good time.”
He added: “I could stay in the country, spend a good time and during the weekend, I go and watch a local league (game).
“But when I’m in Europe, I need to fly every two days to see a player. The best and experienced players for the national team are all based abroad.”
