Legendary Ali Jarra Legendary Ali Jarra

Legendary Ali Jarra has hit out at the Ghana FA for failing to give him the goal keeping trainers job to give the national team another 'saving glooves'.

Ali who chose league winners goalie Fatau Dauda over Brimah and others for the national team revealed on 'Agodie Mmere' on Amansan television that the team needs an expert to train and redeem the team's goal keeping image.

He said he has always wished to take on the goal keeping training job but the GFA has always looked down on him because of his ailment.

"When I'm given the opportunity I can train a good goal keeper for our national team. I believe Ghana still have enough goal keeping talents and I can easily unearth and train one for the country' he said.

He noted that in recent years the Black Stars especially is not enjoying a dependable goal keeper like before.

According to him the FA should not disrespect and neglect former players but rather assign experts and legends from the country to take charge of some of these positions when they are off the pitch so they can go on with the good service to the country.
