Techiman City chief Ntim advises Grant

Techiman City president Charles Kwadwo Ntim, popularly known as Micky Charles, has cautioned Ghana coach Avram Grant to be careful of the way he speaks to Ghanaians.

The 61-year-old Israeli, who had been criticised for not spending sufficient time in Ghana, hit back at critics last week, asking locals to concentrate on football development and not the bulls**t (criticisms).

Ntim believes Grant’s comments could draw more criticisms from the public.

“Avram Grant should be very careful how he talks to Ghanaians because after all, it’s their money through various taxes that are used to pay him every month,” Ntim told Goal.

“He should try and make peace rather than worsening the case. You can’t tell us to stop talking bulls**t when what many Ghanaians are addressing is of great concern to them.

“How many people in Ghana earn $50,000 at the end of every month? Yet, Grant is offered such a huge amount only for him to stay in Europe. Even the president of the country is not earning such an amount so I strongly believe he must apologise for the loose talk,” he said.

“Grant wasn’t just called to takeover a vacant position but applied and stated what he can do to help our football to develop. That’s why the football association gave him the mandate ahead of others.

“He must be very respectful and remember that the country deserves better. Can he tell the people of his native country Israel, to stop the bullsh**t? When Chelsea supporters abused him verbally he couldn’t utter a word.  He remains the most abused coach in Chelsea’s history,” he added.

Grant succeeded Kwesi Appiah as Ghana coach in December 2014 and his contract will end after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations which takes place in January.

Ghana lead Group H of the qualifiers with ten points, after four games and will need a win against Rwanda in June to confirm their qualification to the tournament.
