Grant says goodbye to Ghana and seeks new adventure

Following a difficult Africa Cup of Nations campaign Ghana manager Avram Grant has decided to quit and let the Black Stars find a new boss.

He will not seek to renew his two year contract after Ghana finished fourth. He took Ghana to the final in 2015.

The country is desperate for a fifth African title after 30 years of drought, and Grant made them contenders again after years of under-achievement. He picked up a side in disarray after failing to win a single game at the 2014 World Cup, and barely 12 months later only penalties stopped them lifting a major trophy.

Grant has previously managed the Israeli national side, West Ham, and Chelsea amongst others.
