In an exclusive development, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has initiated discussions with Mauritania coach Amir Abdou.
The Black Stars job is vacant following the dismal of Chris Hughton and his technical team after Ghana’s abysmal performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
Sources reveal that the FA has extended an offer of $45,000 per month to Abdou, while the Mauritanian federation has proposed $35,000 per month for a contract renewal.
Amir Abdou’s current contract is set to expire in March, adding a layer of urgency to the negotiations.
The coach’s potential move to Ghana has sparked interest, and the financial terms put forward by both parties indicate the competitive landscape surrounding his services.
Abdou stock rose after making history with Mauritania at the 2023 AFCON by guiding the team to its first-ever victory in the tournament and progressing to the round of 16 for the first time.
He also previously showcased his prowess by leading Comoros to the round of 16 at the 2021 AFCON, where they achieved a historic 3-2 victory over Ghana in the group stage.
