Professor Joseph Kwame Mintah has been appointed as the new Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The decision was confirmed during a media briefing on Wednesday in Kumasi, organized by the Football Association.
Professor Mintah takes over from Bernhard Lippert, who stepped down from the role after serving as the Technical Director for the past four years.
During Lippert’s tenure, the Football Association introduced initiatives aimed at shaping the country’s football landscape, including unveiling the DNA of Ghanaian football.
Professor Mintah’s appointment signals a shift from his prior position as the Head of Coaching Education at the FA’s Technical Directorate. In this role, he has amassed considerable experience and expertise in football development.
His leadership in coaching has been marked by a strong dedication to nurturing talent across all levels of the sport, spanning from grassroots to elite levels.
Under his guidance, the FA’s coaching programs have undergone notable improvements, providing coaches with the necessary knowledge and skills to foster player development and tactical ingenuity.
Before he was appointed Technical Director, Professor Mintah also served as the psychologist for the Black Stars, further enriching his understanding of the intricacies of football at the highest level.
