GFA collaborating with government to hand contract to national youth team coaches – Henry Asante Twum

The Ghana Football Association Communication Director, Henry Asante Twum has said his outfit is working with the government to ensure that national youth team coaches are handed legally binding contracts.

The head coach of the Black Stars coach and his assistant are currently the only national team coaches under contract with all others just receiving allowances for their services.

According to Mr. Asante Twum, the FA has tabled a proposal to the Sports Ministry which is being looked at before a final decision will be made.

“The teams belong to the State, whatever decision you take has to be in conjunction with the State. This is one of the things the President of the GFA tabled before President Akufo-Addo in their engagement,” he said

“The president said it is a good idea, that [he] likes it, and that he’ll take it up but [we should] deal with the Sports Ministry.

He added, “we are in constant dialogue with the Ministry for approval. Once that approval is given, it will go back to the office of the president and it will receive the green light.

“That green light will give us that authority to now issue out contracts to all national team coaches.

“We have been engaging these coaches, we have made them aware that it is not as if we do not care, it is not as if we don’t care about their conditions of service,” he concluded.
