Kwesi Appiah Gets Government Backing To Take Over Black Stars Coaching Role

Kwesi Appiah Gets Government Backing

Former Black Stars Coach Kwesi Appiah has reported received the backing of top government officials to take up the position as head Coach of the Ghana National team.

Reports indicate the 56-year-old could be re-assigned as the head Coach of the Black Stars after some individuals in the top hierarchy of government contacted the FA to appoint the ex-National player.

Appiah is currently working as head trainer of Sudanese Club Al Khartoum after he was sacked as Coach of the Black Stars three years ago following Ghana’s failure to get past the Group stages of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The Ghanaian trainer remains the only indigenous Coach to qualify the Black Stars to the FIFA World Cup.

Over 70 coaches have reportedly applied for the Black Stars job following the departure of Avram Grant whose contract came to an end last month.

The Ghana Football Association have already set a six-member committee to appoint a Coach for the Black Stars.

Emmanuel Owusu Ansah, a representative from the Sports Ministry on the six-member committee has hinted his outfit is in support of the appointment of a local Coach.
