Willy Sagnol

Former France international Willy Sagnol has expressed interest in the vacant Black Stars head coach role, starrsportsgh.com can exclusively reveal.

The Black Stars job became available after Avram Grant left his role after two disappointing years in charge of the team that ended with a 4th place finish at the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon 2017.

Sagnol, a former playing mate of former Ghana international Samuel Osei Kuffour at Bayern Munich, was recently head coach of French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux leaving his role in June 2016 after nearly 2 years in charge.

Sagnol was in Ghana in January on the invitation of Mirage Football Academy.

But GhanaNation.com can also reveal that he was in the country to lay the grounds work for the job. Sagnol, a Champions league winner in 2001 is fluent in English, French and German.

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at GhanaNation.com. I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.
