Avram Grant resigns as Ghana’s coach.
Avram Grant and the Ghana Football Association have parted ways after the Israeli announced his resignation today.
After an extremely amicable meeting with the president of Ghana FA, and following more than two successful years in charge of the national team, Grant said he had informed Mr Nyantakyi that the time is right for him to move on to a new challenge, thanking him for the opportunity.
He said that he had enjoyed his time in Ghana, taking over after the disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign and rebuilding the squad to reach the final in the African Cup of Nations for only the second time in 23 years, and also the semifinal of this year's competition.
The Black Stars failed to win the just-ended Afcon despite a sixth successive semifinal, having lost 1-0 in the bronze medal match against Burkina Faso.
Avram, won 48 percent of his 29 matches with Ghana, and came close to silverware when he took the team he had inherited just a month to the 2015 Afcon final, only to be beaten by Ivory Coast on penalties.
