Marcel Desailly describes link to Ghana FA technical director role as fake news

France legend Marcel Desailly has debunked reports that he is set to be appointed technical director of the Ghana Football Association.

The former Le Bleus skipper, who was born in Ghana, was linked to the vacant technical director role of Ghana’s football governing body on Thursday by local media.

Happy FM reported on Thursday morning that the Frenchman who has consistently been linked to Ghana jobs in the past was on the verge of being appointed to the vacant position.

The World Cup winner has responded to the report describing it as “Fake News”.

The Ghana FA opened for applications last month as the search for a new technical director to replace Francis Oti Akenteng whose contract has expired and won’t to be renewed.

The former Olympique Marseille, AC Milan and Chelsea centre back was tipped for the Ghana national team coaching job following his application for the position in 2017.

Desailly missed out after Kwesi Appiah was appointed to lead the Black Stars.
