Avram_Grant_2012-780x400The Ghana FA has picked former Chelsea manager Avram Grant as the next Black Stars coach.

According to the West African nation’s football governing body, the Israeli will succeed Kwesi Appiah if he can reach a financial agreement with the FA.

The Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi said at a press conference Friday that the former Maccabi Tel Aviv and West Ham United manager stood out among the final shortlists.

Nyantakyi said if Grant, who is scheduled to be unveiled next week, fails to agree on the financial terms, Juan Jimenez will be the next coach of the four-time African champions.

After an interview in October, the FA said Grant impressed them with his plans for the African side coupled with his strong record. He is expected in Ghana in a few days time to finalise the deal as well as understudy the system. Grant, who is the technical director of BEC Tero Sasana, will in the interim keep acting coach Maxwell Konadu as his deputy, Starr Sports gathers.

Ghana parted ways with Appiah on September 12 after playing two 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. He failed to lead the Black Stars to go beyond the group stages of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil amidst player revolt which led to the expulsion of two midfielders – Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng – in camp.
