Former Asante Kotoko head coach, Abdul Malik Jabir has expressed disappointment after failing to make the cut for shortlisted candidates for the Ghana technical director job.

Since the job was advertised in March 2020, the former head coach of Nigerian side Kano Pillars was part of a list of candidates that applied for the position following the exit of Francis Oti Akenteng.

However, Abdul Malik Jabir could not make the list of applicants to be interviewed via video conferencing; a decision which apparently left the ex-Ghana international dissatisfied.

As reported by footy-ghana, Jabir said, “I was the assistant coach to Otto Pfister. I did five months attachment with Arsenal. I was the first local coach; when I stopped playing in 1978, Ben Coffie and CK [Gyamfi] attached me to them, “

“They [Ghana] kept me until Paha, who was the then captain, sent them to Congo and when we returned, Ben Coffie left for Zimbabwe. I was with CK [Gyamfi], helping him until he also for left Somalia. I was the acting Team Manager then.

“And today, I apply even for the technical directorship role and I was not fit to be interviewed.

“I don’t know why that happened. I was even not invited to be tested. They interviewed the applicants via Skype but did not include me”, he emphasized.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association has earlier announced that six candidates have been shortlisted for an interview with the view of confirming the new technical director of the GFA.

The identities of the six shortlisted candidates remain unknown.
