Appiah: Black Stars don’t need a foreign coach

September 4, 2019 at 4:29 PM

Ghana coach, James Kwesi Appiah wants the country to keep faith with local coaches amid calls for his dismissal from duty.

The 59-year-old is the only indigenous man to have handled the Black Stars on a permanent basis in the last 17 years.

Following Ghana’s disappointing showing at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, there have been heavy calls for his sacking.

It is believed a foreigner is likely to be given the job should there be a search for a new trainer.

“Now what we are fighting for is to make sure the government does not go back to the issue of bringing a white man again. We should show our competence that when given the chance we can do it,” Appiah said as reported by 442gh.
