Avram Grant resigns from his post at Ghana

by Jack Kitson / 07 February 2017, 13:42

Avram Grant has decided to step down from his position in charge of Ghana following the conclusion of the 2017 African Cup of Nations.

Ghana exited the competition at the semi-final stage, losing to eventual winners Cameroon, while they were defeated by Burkino Faso in the Third-place play-off.

The 62-year-pld revealed that he was keen to venture off and pursue a new challenge after just over two years at the helm.

Grant took charge of the confidence-crushed Black Stars in November 2014, and proceeded to lead the country through to the AFCON Final (2015) for only the second time in their history, before agonisingly losing to the Ivory Coast on penalties.

Grant has previously managed a whole host of clubs in his homeland Israel, Serbia, and England, including Chelsea, Portsmouth and West Ham.

Should the veteran gaffer fancy returning to these shores, then he may want to ping his name in the frame for the two current vacancies: Nottingham Forest and Port Vale.
