Tanko will reject GFA offer to become assistant coach

TankoEx-Ghana striker Ibrahim Tanko says he will reject an offer from the Ghana Football Association for a Black Stars assistant coaching job.

The Cameroon assistant coach claims he has garnered the requisite to become head coach and that has been his target.

Rumors say, the former FC Cologne assistant coach will be invited to assist Maxwell Konadu for next month’s back-to-back 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Guinea.

Tanko told Asempa FM: “I will not join the Black Stars coaching staff as assistant but head coach rather because if I look at those who are applying for the job at the moment then nothing prevents me from applying for the top most one.

“Anyway, I am very happy with where the Cameroonian national team has gotten me into. Although is in my plan that as a coach I will come back home one day to serve my motherland.”

Tanko was at the 2014 World Cup finals as assistant to Volker Finke on the Indomitable Lions bench.

He claims getting the best tutorials from the German trainer as he aims to improve in his profession.

“The coach I’m working with is one of the best so am not sure that if any country approach me to assist now, I don’t think I will be able to do so just because I know what I’m getting from Volker Finke,” he added.
