The ex-Kotoko towering guardsman has called on the nation's football governing body to allow Ghanaians choose their next Black Stars coach following the departure of Israeli gaffer Avram Grant.

Former Black Stars defender Joseph Hendricks has urged the Ghana Football Association(GFA) to pave way for Ghanaians to decide who becomes the next head coach of the senior national team.

A six- member committee led by the GFA boss Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi has been mandated to search for a new coach for the vacant Black Stars coaching job.

Notwithstanding, the 46-year-old feels this directive is inappropriate as he thinks the Ghana FA are being unfair to the Ghanaian populace following their calls for the appointment of a local manager for the top coaching job.

''I've learnt that they [Ghana FA] have setup a six-member committee to look for a new coach for the Black Stars team, but I don't see this decision to be the best for Ghanaians at all,'' Hendrick told Berekum-based Chris FM.

''Ghanaians are clamouring for a local coach and I think they should be allow to choose their next head coach of the Black Stars. The voice of the Ghanaian populace should be considered in this exercise,'' he emphasized.

''Again, the GFA shouldn't allow the said set committee to impose any coach on Ghanaians for the vacant coaching job as it'll be unfair to the people of the nation. The right thing which must be done is to pave way for Ghanaians to go for their own coach for the senior national team,'' he reiterated.

Over 70 coaches are reportedly to have applied for the vacant coaching job including three local coaches.
