BREAKING: Avram Grant named new Black Stars coach

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant will become the new coach of Ghana

according to the Ghana Football Association subject to the agreement

of financial terms.

The announcement brings to an end a two month search that at times

bordered on the incompetent after the withdrawal of favourite Patrick

Kluivert and the denial of German Bernd Schuster that he had even

applied for the job.

GFA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi made the announcement. "The exec considered a

report of the committee that was put up the three member committee to

appoint the new coach for Ghana," FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi said.

"It's very a good job reviewing the applicants and two were considered

exceptionally good. Our preference is Avram Grant and Jimenez is our

second choice. We have not reached agreement with him yet but it is

left with some small details which will be sorted out soon."

Grant's appointment will be completed after a financial agreement is

reached with the man who led Chelsea to the finals of the Champions

League in 2008 and is now a technical director in Thailand.

The GFA also confirmed that if an agreement proved difficult, it would

fall on Juan Ignacio Jimenez to take over the job.

Grant will face a hard task as he looks to rebuild a national team

recovering from an embarrassing World Cup and will have his first

hurdle as the AFCON in Morocco in January.
