Former Asante Kotoko superstar Coach Malik Jabir has been snubbed for the GFA Technical Director’s position.
Coach Malik Jabir was one of the favourite coaches who applied when the FA announced the vacant position in March.
The Ghana Football Association’s Technical Director’s role became vacant after the exit of Francis Oti Akenteng.
It was announced last month that six candidates have been shortlisted to be interviewed through video conferencing for onward selection.
Meanwhile, Former Kotoko and Kano Pillars gaffer Abdul Malik Jabir was not included in the shortlist.
Narrating his ordeal as reported by footy-Ghana, Coach Malik said he has good credentials that should have given him a place on the list.
“I was the assistant coach to Otto Pfister. I did five months attachment with Arsenal. I was the first local coach when I stopped playing in 1978. Ben Coffie and CK Gyamfi attached me to them,” Malik Jabir said.
“They (Ghana) kept me until Paha, who was the then captain, sent them to Congo and when we returned, Ben Coffie left for Zimbabwe. I was with CK Gyamfi helping him until he also left for Somalia. I was the acting Team Manager then.”
“And today, I apply even for the Technical Director’s role and I was not fit to be interviewed.
“I don’t know why that happened. I was even not invited to be tested. They interviewed the applicants via Skype but did not include me.” He lamented
The FA will announce the outcome of the interview as soon as the committee has submitted their report to the Executive Council.
