Former Ghana international, Michael Essien, has told a Nigerian journalist that he is not interested in becoming a Ghana coach in the future.
Essien, 41, recently acquired his UEFA ‘A’ coaching license and currently works with Danish club FC Nordsjalland as an assistant coach.
However, the former Chelsea star, who amassed 59 caps over a 12-year national team career, has expressed no interest in using those expertise to coach a Ghana national team.
Essien’s position was disclosed by Nigerian journalist Lolade Adewuyi who met him in Denmark while travelling to cover the UEFA Champions League game between Napoli and AC Milan.
The sports journalist said he asked the ex-midfielder if he was interested in taking charge of the Black Stars but his answer was in the negative.
“On my way to Naples, had a long layover in Denmark where I met a legend of the game, Michael Essien,” Adewuyi tweeted, accompanied by a photo of himself with Essien.
“He’s now a coach at FC Nordsjaelland in the Danish Superliga. He recently got his UEFA A and UEFA Elite Youth Coach licenses. Future Black Stars coach? He said not interested.”
