Former Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko player Charles Taylor has aimed an attack on Ghanaian coaches, branding them as cowards and liars.
The Ghanaian football icon made the claims in an interview Accra-based radio station Asempa FM.
Having featured for both of Ghanaian biggest clubs, the ‘Terror’ as his popularly referred represented Ghana at the International level; 2001 U20 African Youth Championship, 2004 Olympics and the 2009 African Nations Championship.
He is quoted by footballmadeinghana.com, “Ghanaian coaches are not bold, because they know that when they are sacked they will lose their bread and butter so they are always doing ‘Yessa Massa’ (sic)
“The whole world, its Ghanaian coaches that cringe and bootlick. Some go to camp and when it’s evident they have no money to even buy water, they deny when it comes to the limelight.
Charles Taylor went on to describe the local coaches as indecisive, lacking the power to take decisions on their own without interference.
“It’s senseless if we don’t change we will never match up to the White coaches who are firm and independent-minded.
“Ghanaian Coaches are worthless, they cannot even take decisions on their own, management force players on them which they cannot refuse. When results go south, they will even accept the blame when they didn’t even cause it.
“They are liars, no Ghanaian Coach can deny not being forced to select a player by a management member. But they will deny and say it’s their own decision. They are liars, ” he said.
