Coach Avram Grant has stated he is eyeing a return to club football in England after his contract as coach of the Ghana national team expires.
The Israeli who took up the Black Stars job in a 27-month deal beginning December 2014 has his deal expiring at the end of February 2017.
Speaking in a telephone interview to Tel Aviv Radio 102FM back in his native Israel, Grant who spoke on a wide range of issues from his former club Maccabi Tel Aviv to the Israel national team coaching job as well as life with Ghana, said he missed the feeling of “competitiveness and creativity” in training a team week-in week-out.
“[The] competitiveness and creativity training [every day of the] week is different and there is no doubt that I miss [it],” Grant who was speaking from Poland barely 24 hours after leaving Accra for London revealed.
“My contract ends after the African Championships in January. Yesterday I was in London. Next year, at the end of my contract, I will be back coaching a team in England [sic],” he added.
Avram Grant has enjoyed previous stints as manager of Chelsea, Portsmouth and West Ham United in the English Premier League.
The 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon may be the 60-year-old’s last assignment with Ghana should he decide to move on at the end of his current contract.
