Will David Duncan try to win the Ghana FA over to give him the job of handling the Black Stars?

The former coach of Hearts of Oak and Kotoko is being very coy about it all. Duncan refuses to bite on speculation linking him to the vacant coaching job.

The Stars job became vacant since Avram Grant resigned from his post after failing to win the Afcon in Gabon, only reaching the semi - the sixth straight time the side had gone that far and still failed to win the trophy.

Never shy to offer an opinion, Duncan charged the FA to give local coaches a look-in. "I believe the people running our football are not foreigners, therefore it's time to reason that local coaches can do the job. " Over 60 applications for the job have reached the FA, according to officials.

"I believe the people running our football are not foreigners, therefore it's time to reason that in the breath local coaches can do the job," he goes on.

As at the weekend, none of the applicants were of local stock, although media reports say that 1978 African Footballer of the Year Abdul Razak has thrown his hat into the mix.

The Ghana Football Association are yet to officially make applications open.
