Duncan has also waded in the debate, suggesting that the job will not be bigger than him if he was ever appointed as Black Stars coach.

In an interview with Happy FM, Duncan said: “I believe the people running our football are not foreigners, therefore it’s time to think towards the same direction that local coaches can do the [Black Stars] job.

“There’s no player currently in the Black Stars that when I started coaching in 2002 was playing in abroad. The players in the team are not above me to handle because most of them passed through me in their formative years.”

David Duncan is currently without a club after parting ways with Kotoko last season, however, his latest utterances could suggest he is planning of a grand return to coaching, with an eye on the Black Stars job.
