A charged Bashir Hayford has replied former Ghana defender now turned Coach, James Kuuku Dadzie for his comments about him being unqualified for the Ghana FA Technical Director job.

The GFA are in the process of appointing a new technical director after the long serving Francis Oti Akenteng left the role months ago.

The country’s football governing body is believed to have conducted an interview session for all selected candidates who applied and are close to naming the chosen one.

Veteran Ghanaian Coach Bashir Hayford applied for the job and has been very vocal about it in the public.

The former Asante Kotoko and AshGold Coach was recently declared unfit for the role by Kuuku Dadzie.

In response, Bashir Hayford has defended his credentials while aiming a jibe at the former national star.

“The role was vacant to all Ghanaians so why didn’t he apply for the technical director role with the knowledge he has attained and his football experience,” he told Kumasi based Light FM in an interview.

“I know is a position that I will qualify in the future that is why I am schooling a lot to prepare myself. If he doesn’t know me he should check my educational profile, this isn’t about coaching other coaches but the ability to lead the FA technically. I am surprised that he aired such comments,” Coach Hayford continued.

“Oti Akenteng had his first so there is always a first time. This is a job for educationist,” he concluded.
