    Avram Grant has resigned from his post as Ghana coach, just three weeks to the end
    of his contract.

    The Israeli signed a 27-month deal with the
    Ghana Football Association in November 2014
    to succeed James Kwesi Appiah as coach of the Black Stars.

    According to GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, Grant had two tasks; to “do well” at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations win Equatorial Guinea and
    to “win” the 2017 edition in Gabon.

    However, the 61-year-old only managed to
    secure Runner-up spot in 2015 and fourth
    place in 2017.

    “After an extremely amicable meeting with the president of Ghana FA, and following more
    than two successful years in charge of the
    national team, I’ve informed Mr Nyantakyi
    that time is right for me to move on to a new
    challenge and I thank him for the opportunity,” Grant said, according to Grant’s punditry employers – Sky Sports.

    “I’ve hugely enjoyed my time in Ghana taking
    over after the disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign and rebuilding the squad to reach the final in the African Cup of Nations for only the second time in 23 years, and also the semi final of this year’s competition.

    “I’m proud of the fact that I’m leaving an
    extremely professional, strong squad of players of a good age, who I’m sure will go on to achieve great success in the future.

    “The passion and loyalty of the supporters is something I’ll always remember.”

    Grant was in charge of Ghana for 29 games;
    winning 14, drawing 8 and losing 7.
