Ghana legend Rev Osei Kofi wants Stevanovic to develop local talents
Ghana legend Osei Kofi has accused national team coach Goran Stevanovic for doing little to develop local talents.
The Serbian trainer has endeared himself to most Ghanaian soccer fans with his tactics since he took charge of the team in January this year.
He has not dropped a point in the 2012 Nations Cup qualifiers and has lost only twice in international friendly matches against South Korea and recently Brazil.
But the Asante Kotoko legend has heavily criticized the 45-year-old for spending less time in country to monitor local talents.
“As far as I’m concerned until he stays back home and visits league centres to identify new talents, I will continue to have doubt about his ability,” Reverend Kofi said.
“The issue of only picking players who play in Europe and assemble them to play and international matches does not make him a good coach.
“His ability to identify players plying their trade in the country to replace injured once for instance, makes him outstanding.”
“But the current trend does not augur well for us and all of us can do that. It’s so easy and cheap,” he lamented.
