Ex-Black Stars midfielder, Derek Boateng has named the late Cecil Jones Attuquayefio as the best Ghanaian coach ever.
The former Black Stars player worked under Jones Attuquayefio in 1999 when the team was preparing for the World Youth Championships.
However, Derek Boateng did not make it to the final team list that represented the country in Australia.
The 37-year-old says Jones Attuquayefio’s works speak for itself and he was as good as any foreign coach.
“Every player knows, all my colleagues know that whatever Jones shows us during our time in the team, whenever we go to Europe, we see the same things being done by the white coaches. So for me, he is the best coach,” he said on Joy FM.
Cecil Jones Attuquayefio led Hearts of Oak to an unprecedented treble in 2000, winning the CAF Champions League, the Ghana Premier League and the CAF Super Cup.
The late coach also handled Ghana’s U-17 team that won bronze in the 1999 World Youth Champions in Australia.
