The Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association, Bernhard Lippert, has disclosed plans of the association in finding an identity for Ghana football.
Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM, the 56-year-old German appealed to the Ghanaian football community for time to effectively implement measures and plans taken by his outfit in helping create a unique style of football for Ghana.
The former German football manager was appointed by the GFA in October last year to head the technical aspect of Ghana football.
He was given a two-year deal after replacing Francis Oti Akenteng who had been released by the FA.
On how he will achieve his goals, he asserted that there must be an overview of the current gameplay inculcated into the Ghanaian footballing community in other to determine what style Ghana football is revolving in.
That established Bernhard Lippert said an identity which is tailored to Ghana football can then be created so that Ghanaian clubs and national teams will play according to that specific style.
He, however, identified player-exodus as a possible impediment to the plans as players are always on the move to clubs outside the country.
“There is always very fast expectations of the Technical Director but the job is not done in three months or one year. First of all, you have to do an assessment to see where we are. It’s not easy because you must first find the identity of football in Ghana.
“It is difficult to identify because most of the players go to Europe and they play football completely different from what we play. We are going to discover the identity and once that is done we will make some changes for sure.”
