The former Black Stars captain has been the trainer for his second division side Nania FC since 2008 and guided them to the FA Cup final on Sunday.

“When I retired from football I didn’t really decide to be a coach,” MTNfootball.com quoted Pele. “I decided to develop kids to give something back to my country given what my country has done for me. The national team gave me the chance to be seen by the teams abroad.”

The football legend stated that he will take up the Ghana coaching job if the opportunity arises, and he feels ready for it.

“If the chance comes up for me to coach my country in future, I will say nobody knows tomorrow.

“I can’t say my experience in coaching is up there yet, but with time you never know,” the former Olympique Marseille player added.

The 46-year-old, who has his three sons playing for Ghana at the senior level, is yet to acquire any formal training in coaching.
