Johannesburg - Ghana legend and former defender Samuel Kuffour said it is time for head coach Avram Grant to leave the Black Stars following yet another disappointing campaign in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
Ghana finished the continental spectacle in fourth place which infuriated Kuffour and the entire West African nation.
The former Bayern Munich man-marker slammed Grant and the Ghanaian FA for their lack of investment in the youth in the team.
The 40-year-old said there is no need for Ghana to offer Grant a new contract and they must start searching for a new mentor.
"I think it's time for him (Grant) to go now. Things can't continue like this," Kuffour said on SuperSport TV.
"Firstly, he doesn't live in Ghana and he doesn't watch our local league.
"He only comes during the international weeks and leave after that.
"We don't have a strong youth team and we don't have what it takes to be a strong future national team.
"For how long are we going to rely on Asamoah Gyan? How long are we going to rely on Andre Ayew?
"I believe that things would be worse in the next five years or so. If we have a youth team then we'll be certain of the next Asamoah Gyan, next Abedi Pele you can name them.
"We are currently not in the right direction and our leaders are letting us down."
