Marcel Desailly has vehemently rejected reports of astronomical salary demands to coach Ghana which has severely affected his bid to take the vacant post.
The ex-France captain, who was born in Ghana, is still the overwhelming favourite for the job with the Ghana FA and Sports Ministry officials keen on him taking over as the Black Stars coach.
Various amounts of money Desailly wants as his monthly salary with figures ranging from US$120,000, US$70,000 and 90, 000 Euros have been quoted in various media circles.
Ghanasoccernet reported that he wanted US$100,00 and the two reported conditions have left him reeling.
The other condition of bringing in two assistant coaches from France has also been pointed as his initial demands for the job.
The Africa Sports pubalso reported that a Top Official of the Ministry of Youth and Sports has discussed Desailly’s financial demands with the President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi.
But a statement from his company MD Investments has vehemently denied demanding US$120,000 for the job insisting he wants to serve the country.
“Marcel has not been on any platform or in any meeting anywhere and asked for a salary of $120,000 as being speculated in the mass media,” a statement signed by MD Investments General Manager, Solomon Kludge said.
“Marcel has not been on any platform or in any meeting, be it formal or informal and asked to bring two French assistant coaches as part of a possible backroom staff.”
He added “If given the chance, Marcel will serve Ghana to the best of his ability.”
Over fifty coaches have so far applied for the post.
