Coach Sackey could spy on Ghana for USA

The technical team of the United States senior national team is considering appointing Ghana coach Robert Sackey as a scout for US coach Juergen Klinsmann ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

Sackey, who has lived in US for close to twenty-three years, disclosed to Asempa FM Sports that the US have approached him on the possibility of tapping into his vast wealth of knowledge and experience as a Ghanaian to help the US trainer to plan how to deal with the Black Stars when the two countries clash at the World Cup.

"It is true that the USA have started talking to me but I have not met coach Klinsmann yet," Sackey said on Asempa FM Sports.

"When we were going to the 2010 World Cup we had a Serbian coach and he coached (Ghana) against his own country."

"The USA now has a German coach and he will face his own country at the World Cup. This is called professionalism."

"If the US calls me, there is no way I will turn them down but my heart is with Ghana."

"We are going for a workshop in England with top US coaches and I understand Klinsmann will be there with us, but the door is opened to Ghana and the US."

The US-based Ghanaian technical brain served Ghana on an advisory capacity in the technical team of the Black Stars in the run up to the 2006 FIFA World Cup and during the competition in Germany.

Ghana will begin its 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament when they face the Yanks of USA in a group G encounter on 16th June at Arena das Dunas in Natal, Brazil.
