Head coach of defending Premier League Champions, Bashir Hayford has taken a swipe at the Ghana FA with claims that he wish he was from Togo because the FA do not recognize it’s best coaches.
Bashir Hayford won the First Capital Plus Bank Premier League title with Ashanti Gold last season and was adjudged the best coach of the season after beating off competition WAFA Coach John Killa and Aduana Stars trainer Kwabena Ameyaw.
Elsewhere, the best coach is sent for football-related activities to beef up his technical knowledge in the game, but here in Ghana, the FA and PLB do not provide any incentive for winning the accolade.
And the outspoken coach wish he was a native of Ghana’s West Africa neighbours, Togo.
“After they say you are the best coach, that’s all. It ends there. That day they name you that is all! No program for you to follow, nothing! For me sometimes I wish I come from Togo because, Master, things that are happening here,” Hayford told Starr FM.
“You are named the Best Coach and then the whole season you sit down until they choose another Best Coach. What are the programs for the best Coach? Elsewhere, Best Coaches are taken outside for attachment somewhere by the FA,” He added.
Bashir Hayford also suggested that the FA and PLB should provide a platform for coaches to acquire knowledge abroad and impart on their colleagues when thet return.
“The FA must say this is our Best Coach and we have to make sure we maintain his standard so maybe go to Liverpool or Chelsea on attachment for one week or programs like go to Tamale and meet the coaches and give them your experience,” He said.
