The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has parted ways with head coach Avram Grant following the Black Stars fourth position at the just ended Total Africa Cup of Nations Gabon 2017.

The Israeli became the latest coaching casualty after the ‘Holy Grail’ yet again eluded the Black Stars, who reached the semis for the sixth consecutive time at the flagship continental football championship.

A statement by the GFA confirmed the departure of the former Chelsea and Portsmouth coach, whose contract was due to end on 28 February 2017.

“The contract between the Ghana Football Association and Mr. Abraham Grant ends on 28th February, 2017. Both parties have agreed that the contract shall be allowed to run its full course.

“Both parties have mutually agreed not to renew the contract upon its expiry. Any accrued rights and obligations under the contract shall be observed by both parties.

“Notwithstanding the fact that the contract shall run until the 28th February, 2017, both parties agree that the Ghana Football Association is at liberty to commence the process of searching and appointing a new coach for the Senior National Team of Ghana, the Black Stars,” the GFA statement read.

Grant took charge of the Black Stars in December 2014 and guided the West Africans to the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea, losing to Cote d’Ivoire on penalties. Under watch, the Stars finished fourth losing 1-0 to Burkina Faso in the third place.

Meanwhile, the GFA has begun the search for a new coach to take over the senior national team.
