#KonaduSpeaks: Why I didn’t apply for Stars job

Maxwell Konadu has finally broken silence on his failure to apply for the head coach role of the senior national team, the Black Stars, a few months ago.

According to the trainer who first served as assistant to current head coach Kwasi Appiah back in 2013 and subsequently kept his job under immediate-past boss Avram Grant, his reason is simple – he didn’t feel like it.

“When there is a job opportunity and you don’t feel like applying, I believe you will surely have your reasons,” Konadu hypothetically responded to a question during an interview with Nhyira FM.

But the Ghana Premier League winner with Kotoko did not go further in laying bare what could have discouraged him from chasing the job he has bagged some good experience from being an understudy for over four years.

The Ghana job became vacant after former Chelsea manager Avram Grant ended his contract with the Ghana FA at the end of February this year.

Kwasi Appiah was eventually engaged as the Black Stars coach in April, in a second coming after he was made to leave the job due to a disastrous World Cup outing in 2014.

Coach Maxwell Konadu has been maintained within the national team set-up but this time as the second assistant to Appiah and as well takes charge of the Black Stars ‘B’ side.
