The ex-star who plied his trade in Germany before taking coaching courses and practical in Japan, Germany and Cameroun told newsmen at the El Wak Stadium in Accra that he is ready to serve his motherland in any capacity as a head coach or assistant coach.
He said Ghana just needs a manager who can manage the talents and soon the nation would be getting back the golden fleece.
Tanko together with former skipper, Stephen Appiah have been tipped to support coach James Kwesi Appiah to take charge of the Black Stars who are in a very tight situation to qualify for their fourth successive FIFA World Cup.
Ghana is in a tough group with the Cranes of Uganda and the Pharaohs of Egypt who top the group.
Though most Ghanaians have lost hope in the qualification, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwesi Nyantekyi is optimistic of the Stars making it to Russia 2018.
He said football is a game of shocks and surprises and Ghana can spring a surprise qualification.
The GFA President was recently elected to represent Africa on the FIFA Executive Council. He also won an election to serve on the CAF Executive Committee.
