Two more big wigs have thrown their hats into the ring regarding the still vacant Black Stars coaching job.

They are former Tottenham and West Ham manager Harry Redknapp and ex-Italian striker Fabrizio Ravanelli .

Redknapp, 70, whose last managerial post was with Jordan, is one of five candidates looking to succeed Avram Grant, who stepped down after Ghana finished fourth at the Africa Cup of Nations in February.

Also interested are Frenchman Patrice Carteron and Ghanaian pair Karim Abdul Razak Tanko and James Appiah.

Carteron, 46, has a wealth of experience in African football, having coached Mali from 2012 to 2013 as well as TP Mazembe of Congo when they won the African Champions League in 2015.
