Deputy Minister of Education and Sports, Mr Osei Bonsu Amoah, has stated that the Ministry will decide on the fate of Ratomir Dujkovic only after receiving the coach's report on the Black Stars performance at the 25th Africa Nations Cup in Egypt.

He said, it is too early to draw any conclusions after the Stars first round exit from the ongoing competition last Tuesday.

Ghana crashed out of the Nations Cup for the first time in six years after a surprise 1-2 defeat to Zimbabwe who were already on their way home after two defeats to Nigeria and Senegal.

In a chat with the Graphic Sports, Mr Amoah said the coach could also be given the benefit of the doubt after blaming the team's poor showing on the absence of some key players in Egypt.

He, however, expected the Ghanaian team officials to advise the coach when necessary since they knew the players better.

He stressed the need for the Ghana Football Association to have a technical directorate to supervise the activities of the coach.

Mr Amoah explained that as the situation stands now, the Stars coach reports directly to the GFA management whose members are not technical men.

The Deputy Minister who was the leader of the Ghanaian delegation in Egypt returns home today.
