Ghana FA to buy house for Avram Grant

Black Stars Management Committee Chairman, George Afriyie, has revealed that the FA is making moves to buy a house for Black Stars Coach Avram Grant anytime soon.

The FA Vice President was reacting to suggestions from some Ghanaian pundits, who insist it would have been better to keep the current Stars Coach Avram Grant in a rented apartment instead of a hotel.

The Israeli trainer is currently housed at the Alisa Hotel, which has left the FA and government with huge costs.

“If you own it, it’s much better than renting it because if you look at previous places where we put Black Stars coaches, you are looking at paying $4,000 or 5,000 a month,” Afriyie stated.

“Why don’t we use that money as a mortgage to pay down for a house for the Black Stars Coach? This would be a cost effective measure.”

Meanwhile, Avram Grant is preparing to monitor two Ghana Premier League matches and a CAF Confederation Cup match in the country this weekend.

The former Chelsea and West Ham manager will first monitor Asante Kotoko’s crucial match-day five Ghana league home clash with Sekondi Hasaacas in Kumasi on Friday before moving to Obuasi to watch AshantiGold SC host Aduana Stars on Saturday.

The 61-year-old tactician will round up the weekend’s scouting by monitoring Medeama SC’s crucial CAF Confederation Cup clash with Libyan club Al Ittihad Tripoli at the Essipong Stadium in Sekondi on Sunday.
