Ghana football legend who is now a man of God, Reverend Osei Kofi has expressed his readiness to turn down any offer to coach the National team as he feels he is past his pomp to have any impact on the group.
Reverend Osei Kofi indicated that it is too little too late now for him to try making a good team out of a broken one like the Black Stars adding that he is too old to handle a job like managing the National team.
He made this comments in response to media reports that the Ghana Football Association is looking to give him a job as the interim coach of the Black Stars with another Ghanaian football legend, Mohammed Polo.
But reacting to the reports, the Reverend noted that he is too old for the job and will turn it down if the offer is put before him.
“Do they think we have nothing doing? We are too old to coach the team now. We are no longer young people. They have sat down and allowed this kind of humiliation to happen before thinking of granting us this job. No way. I am an old man now so I will not be able to do this.”
He however noted that he would be available to work with the Ghana Football Association and the National team on a consultancy level.
“I understand football so well. Local coaches are competent. We have complained all these years over our taste for foreign coaches. For 40 years now we have not been able to lift a cup and when I talk, they will claim that I am hungry and want food that is why I am talking. So I am quiet now. I don’t want to talk anymore. If they want me to consult for them, I will do that but to coach the team, I am too old for that.”
