CAIRO - World Cup quarter-finalists Ghana
hope to have a new coach in place by the year-end, having
interviewed three candidates to replace Serbian Milovan Rajevac,
who left in September for a lucrative club job in Saudi Arabia.
"The process is moving along swiftly and we hope to be able
to announce something by the end of the month," Ghana Football
Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi told Reuters in Cairo on
Former Portugal manager Humberto Coelho, Serbian Goran
Stevanovic and local Herbert Addo are left in the running.
Former World Cup winner Marcel Desailly, the French
international born in Ghana, took himself off a shortlist of
candidates that Ghana announced last month, saying he had had no
official contact about the job.
Coelho, who has also previously coached Morocco, South Korea
and Tunisia, met Ghana officials last week and told the
Portuguese news agency Lusa he had fruitful discussions.
"It would be a challenge to take up the job," he said.
Rajevac was in Cairo on Monday to receive an award as
Africa's Coach of the Year, after taking Ghana to the last eight
of the World Cup in South Africa and the final of the African
Nations Cup in Angola earlier in the year. He is now coaching at
Al Ahli Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
