It will be an insult for GFA to appoint a foreigner as Technical Director - Polo

Former Black Stars player and 1978 Africa Cup Of Nations winner, Mohammed Polo has made some suggestions to the GFA in the appointment of a new Technical Director.

The technical directorate position is now unoccupied after Oti Akenteng's long term service came to and last month.

Speaking to Richmond K Entsie on Tru FM, Mohammed Polo claimed that Ghanaians are matured to do the work.

According to Mohammed Polo "we don't need to appoint any foreigner for the job due to the maturity of our football".

"We have old footballers who can do the work. For white man to come in to this is an insult to our integrity."

"Don't we have sense? What has the white men done for us? They can't do anything because we have our own destiny that is why we gained independent.

"This is the time to look for the right person to help our football because the Technical Director is there for our football policies especially the development of our football.

"We have the qualities in the system but we are not developing it. The football is like our food and it differ from the foreigners. It's unnecessary to appoint foreigner. We have to think far." He said.
