Sports Psychologist, Dr. Patrick Ofori says the job of a Technical Director transcends beyond coaching, and a department of more than just one man should be formed to achieve a set of targets for the national teams.
The FA is yet to appoint a new Technical Direct after Oti Akenteng left the role following over a decade of service.
Several names have popped up, with former Kotoko and Ashantigold coach Bashiru Hayford among the coaches to have applied for the job.
But Dr. Patrick Ofori believes the job is beyond just being a coach.
“The role of a technical director transcends beyond just coaching but someone who can interpret physiological data and even the nutritional data,” he told Light Sports.
“I prefer the person to be organizing seminars at the end of the first and second round, i expect the person to be moving weekly to visit all academies, division one teams and the regional level like what the German and English technical director does as to the kind of football style the country is glued to.
“Moreover, it shouldn’t be only one person like what Oti Akenteng was doing. It requires certain key personnel so we should adhere to it.”
