Former Ghana international Augustine Arhinful sees a bright future for the various national teams should coaches decide to start working together.
According to him, there will be improvement in the various national teams should coaches decide help each other in their line of duty.
Speaking to Asempa FM, he advised that the next appointed technical director of the Ghana Football Association should pick up coach CK Akonnor’s idea of the national team coaches working together.
“The new GFA technical director should pick up coach CK Akonnor’s idea of the national team coaches working together.”
“Our national teams can be better with the right approach and sharing of ideas.”
Black Stars coach CK Akonnor last week called for a system or platform for national team trainers to share ideas and help each other in their line of duty.
In an interview with the GFA media team, Akonnor said:
“We need to understand that we must have a set-up which each and every [national] team will follow from top to bottom. So if you’re playing for instance 4-3-3 or 4-3-2-1, [system that] the Meteors used during the 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, the journey [of players] to the top will not be long. We must have that understanding because that is what they do out there.
“[National team] coaches must have a relationship so that we can share ideas. We should be able to share ideas because I don’t know it all, they also don’t know it all. We need to help each other. And that is a barrier in-between the coaches, it’s a fact.
“I am open. I want a situation where the national set-up will have that bond in terms of tactical play. Before I got into the national team, I was in the Under-20. Otto Pfister saw me in an international match. The following week he called me into the Black Stars because there were similarities in the style of play and what he needs and it was easier.”
