Grant travelling to support Ghana at 2015 AYC

The Black Stars manager is set to travel to Senegal for the 2015 Africa Youth Championship

Ghana coach, Avram Grant, has revealed he would be travelling to Senegal to support  the Ghana team at the African U-20 Championship which kicked off on Sunday.

The 60-year-old was supposed to be with the team from the start of the tournament, but opted to watch a Ghana Premier League match between Liberty Professionals and Bechem United over the weekend at the Carl Reindorf Park.

“I am going to watch their second and third games. I will be missing the first match because I was bent on watching a league match during the weekend,” Grant told reporters.

The Black Satellites will open their campaign against South Africa on Monday March 9 in Group B in the city of M’Bour before locking horns with Zambia and South Africa later on.

“I am excited because this is the first time I will be watching the Africa Youth Championship. I think it is a good platform to spot talents.”

The top four teams at the championship will qualify to the Fifa U20 World Cup in New Zealand in May/June this year.

The Black Satellites are the third most successful team in the history of the competition with three titles.
