Avram Grant treats us like Kids – Afriyie Acquah
Ghana Black Stars and Torino midfielder Afriyie Acquah has praised Ghana Coach Avram Grant for the manner he interrelate with the players of the senior national team calling him a father figure.
He said ”Grant has taken us as his children, always checking on us, how conditioned we are. Even if you aren’t part of the team he motivates you to train harder and get much playing time in your team.”
The Black Stars are on a quest to win the African crown for the first time in many tournaments and Afriyie Acquah was full of praise for the Israeli coach for the manner he treats and interacts with the players of the Ghana black stars.
The Torino midfielder who was part of the silver winning black Stars squad believes the current crop of players have a tough mentality to go a step further in the upcoming AFCON tournament.
”I think we have a good team like we had in the last AFCON. We played in the final in the previous edition but we lost to Ivory Coast on shootouts. We have a tougher mentality this time around. We are working hard to be in the final and win the cup,”
