Ghanaian national football team, Black Stars' current coach happens to be a former Chelsea, and West Ham boss. The coach who is fresh from leading Ghana to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations, has been linked with the vacant Aston Villa post following the sacking of Paul Lambert on Wednesday night.

Even amidst rumor that Aston Villa fan Prince William is allegedly keen for Grant to take charge at Villa Park, the 60-year-old says he is a not a contender.

“I feel lucky because, through football, I have been to so many places,” Grant said in an interview with Sky Sports News HQ.

“Aston Villa is a great club, with great fans and it is an honour to have my name mentioned with them, but I want to continue with Ghana for the next two years, until the end of my contract. I enjoy managing Ghana very much.

“I met Prince William and he asked me ‘why don’t you come to Aston Villa?’. I said ‘when you become the chairman, I will come’.

“As long as my name is mentioned, I feel good with this, but not more than that. I want to continue with Ghana.”
