Avram Grant appointed Ghana coach

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant has been appointed the new coach of Ghana.

The 59-year-old has signed a 27-month deal to take over from Maxwell Konadu, who had been in temporary charge since  Kwesi Appiah left in September.

He will start work on Monday and his contract will finish at the end of February 2017 – after that year’s Africa Cup of Nations finals.

Israeli Grant has only six weeks to prepare the Black Stars for the 2015 Nations Cup in Equatorial Guinea.

The Ghana Football Association have given Grant a target of “doing well” at the upcoming tournament – given his short time with the team – and to win the event two years later.

Ghana, who topped their qualification group for next year’s showpiece, will find out their opponents in Equatorial Guinea when the draw is made on 3 December.

The tournament will be held between 17 January and 8 February.
