Mr Henry Asante Twum, the Communications Director for the Ghana Football Association has hinted that his outfit will name a new technical director soon.

The technical director role at the FA has been left vacant following the exit of Francis Oti Akenteng in March.

Six candidates have been shortlisted by the FA. On Wednesday, August 13, the Executive Chairman held a meeting at the premises of the FA to discuss who is fit for the job.

According to the Communications Director for the GFA, Henry Asante Twum, the need to conduct a thorough job has slowed the process.

“The process for selecting a technical director is over," he told Citi Sports.

“The team that conducted the interview and went through the various processes, are yet to submit their recommendations and report to the executive council.

“For which reason, a decision will be made as regards the appointment of a new technical director.

“I will call on the general public to give us a few more days to settle on this particular candidate for the job, he concluded,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, German trainer, Winfried Schäfer is favourite to land the job according to multiple reports.
