Grant set for Ghana departure after AFCON heartbreak

Updated: 

Avram Grant will call time on his spell as Ghana head coach when his contract expires at the end of February, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed.

Ghana suffered a 2-0 Africa Cup of Nations semi-final loss to eventual winners Cameroon this month, having been beaten on penalties in the 2015 final.

His last game at the helm was Saturday's last-gasp 1-0 defeat to Burkina Faso in the third-place play-off.

The GFA confirmed its search for a successor could begin immediately and that Grant, though under contract until February 28, may seek new employment.

Grant took charge of the Black Stars - 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists - in December 2014.
