FIFA U-20 World Cup winner, Awudu Issaka, says he will prefer to see an expatriate coach taking charge of the Black Stars.

Following the exit of Kwesi Appiah as the head coach of the Black Stars, the Ghana Football Association are yet to name a coach of the country’s senior national team.

Former footballers and football enthusiasts have called on the FA to appoint a competent local coach following the dissolution of the technical team of the national team.

However, the former Liberty Professionals and Anderlecht forward believes the current state of the Black Stars demand the appointment of an expatriate coach.

“Both the expatriate coach and the local coaches are good because they can all help develop our football,” he told Asempa FM.

“Some of the players don’t help the coaches to execute their work.

“For me, expatriate coaches have helped me in my football career but it is up to Kurt Okraku to do the right thing to help develop our football.

“Looking at our national team now, I prefer an expatriate coach to take charge of the Black Stars,” he added.
