Flemming Serritslev has expressed his disappointment at his missed chance to work with the Black Stars as a Technical Advisor .
The Danish trainer was favourite to be named to the position that had been created by the Ghana Football Association but was met with resistance from Kwasi Appiah, a situation that eventually led to his parting ways with the GFA.
In an exclusive interview with Allsports.com.gh,the experienced Danish trainer said Ghana had reached the point where they needed a new set of eyes to offer advise.
“I would have loved to work in Ghana; no doubt about this because the national team is a strong team one and I would have loved to help. When you are an advisor you must understand your role.
“I would have advised Mr.Appiah because sometimes when you are in a country or a team you get used to so many things and you need different set of eyes to look at the team and look where improvements can be made” Serritslev tol Allsports.com.gh
I know many here were unsatisfied after the World Cup but Ghana should also have taken the positives from there.
They were the only team to take points from Germany in an excellent game they could have won. The future of Ghana football is very bright,”
Serritslev,currently on a teaching assignment to Ghana pleaded for funding to improve playing surfaces in the country and hailed the natural talent of Ghanaian footballers.
“It has been a very exciting trip watching young and talented players. The speed and skill of Ghanaian footballers is very high and it is for me it is the most important .
We can improve the surfaces we use and i hope there will be funding for Ghana football to get better surfaces and I wish they could get more artificial pitches for the players to train. It would be very beneficial.”
