National Democratic Congress (NDC) bigwig, Professor Joshua Alabi, has expressed interest in coaching the men’s national team, the Black Stars.

The former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) took to his Facebook page to announce the interest.

He wrote: I want to coach the Ghana Black Stars.

His revelation comes about 48 hours after the role became vacant following the Ghana Football Association‘s (GFA) decision to sack the immediate past coach, Charles Kwabla Akonnor, and his two assistants.

This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the Head Coach of the senior national team and the report from the Black Stars Management Committee following Ghana’s Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Meanwhile, the GFA has constituted a three-member committee and tasked it to find a new Black Stars head coach in the next 72 hours.
