As long as African football will exist, Herve Renrd’s name will always be attached to it for the success the 51 year-old French coach has had in this country .
Last weekend, he maintained with Ghanian journalist Juliette Bawuah and gave the top 11 of African players he trained . And among this legendary team, six Ghanian players are included . They are : Richard Kingson (former Black Stars Goalkeeper), Sueley Muntary (former midfielder), Michael Essien (former midfielder) , John Mensah (former defender) Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew and his junior brother Jordan Ayew on the bench .
He integrated four ivorian players who are : Kolo Toure, Yaya Toure, Siaka Tiené and Gervinho on the bench . Whereas moroccans are three : Achraf Hakimi , Mehdi Benatia and Younes Belhanda on the bench .
The team with 4-2-3-1 tactical
Goalkeeper : Richard Kingson
Defenders : Mehdi Benatia, John Mensah, Kolo Toure , Achraf Hakimi .
Midfielders : Yaya Toure, Michael Essien, Siaka Tiené, Suley Muntari, Jordan Ayew .
Forward : Asamoah Gyan
Bench : Andre Ayew, Gervinho, Younes Belhanda .
Is this suffiscient to convince Ghanian sportive authorities to entrust him the national team ? Anyway he dreams of bringing AFCON’s trophy back to the Black Stars . However, the absence of Zambia players is surprising knowing that it is the first country to which he won an AFCON in 2012 .
