Grant withdraws but offers no apology for b*****t comment

File photoGhana coach Avram Grant says he withdraws the use of the word ‘b*****t and explained what he meant with that remark.

The Israeli had told Ghanaians to focus on ‘the football, not the b*****t’ after a Nations Cup qualifying win. The remarks came after several weeks when his regular trips abroad had been roundly criticised.

But he claims he simply didn’t come across well and insist he has utmost respect for Ghana and Ghanaians.

“I withdraw this word. I love Ghana, I respect Ghanaians. I  care about Ghanaians,” he told GFA Communications Director Ibrahim Sannie.

” What I wanted to say is that we need to focus on the important things that can take us forward and not about the unnecessary things.”

Grant’s withdrawal and explanation is unlikely to pacify those who say that comment highlights the Israeli’s disrespect for Ghana and want a full apology for that.
