Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan says his teammates are ready to work under any coach appointed to take charge of the Black Stars no matter his origin.

The Ghana FA have shortlisted five expatriate coaches for consideration to be the substantive replacement for Kwesi Appiah.

Amongst the shortlisted candidates include ex Chelsea coach Avram Grant, Marco Tardelli and Michel Pont.

Bernd Schuster and Juan Ignacio Jiminez complete the list of coaches to be interviewed by the GFA for the vacant job.

Some have however suggested the Black Stars team be handed to interim coach Maxwell Konadu on a permanent basis.

But sceptics believe the big egos within the Black Stars team will either reject or undermine the work of a local coach once such an appointment is made.

Captain Asamoah Gyan however says his team will welcome the eventual appointment of the GFA regardless of the appointee's race.

“We are not looking at the origin of the new coach,” he said.

“Once a coach is appointed we will definitely work with that person and it doesn't matter whether he is white or black.

“We as players are ready to work with any coach the Ghana FA sees fit to appoint.”
