I am not snobbish, the media doesn’t understand me - Bashir Hayford

The Black Queens Coach Bashir Hayford claims Ghanaian sports journalists often ask him unintelligent questions and has been unfairly branded as a snobbish coach.

Ex-Asante Kotoko gaffer has had several cold-shouldered encounters with the local sports media for over a decade due to what he describes as unfair criticisms and poor question lines.

“I am not snobbish. It’s just that the media doesn’t understand me as a teacher who has been designing tests for students.”

“You have to know what you want out of the question. If you give me thought-provoking questions, I will give you thought-provoking answers so it depends on the questions. If I am to mark your questions, most of you will fail. The questions should make people think”, he told Starr Sports.

Coach Hayford is currently in Prampram preparing the Black Queens ahead of this year AWCON to be hosted in Ghana in November.
