The shortlisted coaches for the vacant Black Stars job will be interviewed next week, the Ghana FA has confirmed.

Five coaches have been shortlisted for the job which has become vacant following the departure of former Chelsea coach Avram Grant.

Media reports are claiming 132 coaches are scrambling to replace Grant, who left after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Reports claim to coaches including Manchester United legend and former Valencia coach Gary Neville, Harry Redknapp and ex-Brazilian left-back Roberto Carlos have slapped in their CV's.

Only four local coaches are reported to have applied for the job with fans' favourite Kwesi Appiah enjoying massive media backing to return as Black Stars coach.

Ghana FA vice-president George Afriyie has confirmed the interview process will begin next week.

"All I can say for now is that over 100 coaches have applied for the Black Stars job," he told Asempa FM

"We shall shortlist the names and those will be interviewed next week.

"If everything goes well, we can have the whole process completed latest April and we'll have a new coach in place."

Government has hinted that there is no money to pay an expatriate coach to put the Khartou SC trainer in the driving seat to win the race.
