Ghanaian football legend Mohammed Polo has expressed his displeasure at the lack of opportunity given him to coach Ghana’s senior male national team the Black Stars over the years.
The 1978 Afcon winner who has prior experience coaching Accra Hearts of Oak and Stade Malien expressed interest and readiness to take over the job prior to the appointment of C.K Akonnor.
He believes his wealth of experience as a player and head coach should be taken advantage of by the national team.
“Its very unfortunate that I haven’t been given the chance because legends should be given priority. Its done all over the world but not in Ghana. Its not about certificates, those are just papers. Its your CV that talks about what you can do,” he stated on The Tracker on Citi TV.
Polo spends his days coaching kids at the U – 12 level but has been forced to halt temporarily due to the Covid – 19 pandemic.
