This is why Ace Ankomah opted out of the search committee for the next game Ghana manager

Legal expert, Ace Anan Ankomah has opted out of the five-member committee formed to search for the next Black Stars coach.

The members were Mark Addo (Chairman) Ace Anan Ankomah (Vice Chairman), Sports Psychologist Professor Joseph Kwame Mintah, Black Stars and Kumasi Asante Kotoko legend, Opoku Nti, and Chief Director at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, William Caesar Katey.

His resignation from the search committee has raked in various accusations, suggesting why the Vice Chairman of the committee has declined to serve on the committee.

However, according to a thorough work done by our outfit, experienced legal practitioner is conflicted following a case between the Ghana Football Association and Westhead Limited, and it is the only he has decided not to be part of the Committee.

Mr. Ace Anan Ankomah is currently the lawyer for Westhead Limited in their appeal case against the GFA which means he cannot be part of the committee to search for a new gaffer for the Black Stars.

Westhead Limited claimed they were responsible for securing the deal, which involved the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation contributing $3 million annually for three football seasons (from 2012/13 to 2014/15).

Though the Ghana Football Association has won the substantive case, Westhead Limited has filed an appeal and their Lawyer is Mr. Ace Anan Ankomah.

The search committee’s primary responsibility is to find a suitable tactician to replace Chris Hughton following Black Stars disastrous performance at Africa Cup of Nations tournament ongoing in Ivory Coast.

The committee has a three-week timeline to present its recommendation for the next Black Stars coach to the Executive Council. A comprehensive Job Description for the head coach position will be published soon, with an abbreviated version of the selection criteria highlighting:

1. The potential Head Coach must have a proven track record of success in coaching Top Men’s National Team or Club Football.

2. Alignment or complementation of football philosophy with the national DNA.

3. Possession of the highest football license globally and over 15 years of coaching experience.

4. Demonstrated success in team reconstruction, organization, and development of young talent.

5. Proven skills as a disciplinarian, tactician, and leader.
