Former France international of Ghanaian descent Marcel Desailly says he will be open to work with the Black Stars in some capacity if the appropriate structures are put in place.

He has been linked with Ghana coaching job in the past but he believes that particular ship has sailed for him.

However when asked if he would be interested in taking up a job as a consultant to the national team, he said;

“Yes, if it’s clear. If there is not too much story on board about who wants this or that. Or ego of the Minister of Sports who wants to interfere in the system” the 51 year old said in an interview with FootballMadeInGhana

”Yes they are helping us with the money but people should stay in their place. A coach should be a coach and the President of the FA should perform his role by delegating and giving the coach the necessary support. So the answer is yes, why not but it takes time, if everything is in place and everyone is capable to stay in their position I’m willing to come in and give my expertise” 

Desailly was born in Ghana but moved to France as a four-year-old boy.

He would go on to secure French citizenship and play for Les Bleus at the 1998 World Cup where his side emerged champions on home soil.

The Ex Marseille and Ac Milan defender also won the Uefa European Championship in 2000 and the Fifa Confederation Cup in 2001 and 2003.
