The famous blue polo shirt which Ghana coach Avram Grant wore during the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations was inspired by his celebrity wife Tzufit Grant with many claiming it helped the Black Stars finish second in the tournament. The Israeli manager binned his black polo shirt which he wore in the first match that Senegal defeated the Black Stars 2-1 with a late goal. The Black Stars coach subsequently wore the blue shirt for the next match against Algeria which Ghana won 1-0 thanks to Asamoah Gyan’s late goal. Even though the shirt was not flamboyant his wife called for him to maintain it claiming it has brought him the good luck needed to steer the side.
wore Black Stars Head Coach Avram Grant’s Blue Polo shirt has become unanimous with Ghanaians after he wore it to win silver in the just ended African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. Grant’s beloved wife, Tzufit Grant, according to Chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee, George Afriyie, is the brain behind Grant’s Blue Polo Shirt. “He wore a different dress in the first game against Senegal and we lost, but in the second game when he wore the Blue Polo shirt his wife even questioned why he wore that dress,” George Afriyie the chairman of the Black Stars management committee revealed. “But he won the game and his wife told him to wear the same Blue Polo shirt, and then we all saw what happened.” Afriyie rubbished suggestions that Grant wore a single blue polo Shirt throughout the competition. “The blue Polo shirt he wore is not one; he had more than 5 and so for somebody to say he wore one Polo shirt is not true,” George Afriyie told Accra-based Happy FM.
