The deputy minister for Youth and Sports, Evans Owusu Bobie, has revealed that the government is yet to approve anyone as the new Black Stars coach as has been speculated.

According to him, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has not received the report from the Ghana Football Association on who is suitable for the vacant Black Stars coaching job.
