“When I realised that we’re spending $8000 a month on accommodation for Black Stars coaches, I was overwhelmed, hence our decision to acquire an official residence for the national team coach to save the country the huge amount we have been pumping in,” Isaac Asiamah told the press.

This means the Sports Ministry spent a total of GHC864,000 ($192000) on accommodation alone for former Ghana coach Avram Grant who lived in a hotel for his entire two-year stay in the country.
