Kwasi Appiah Won’t Go – Nyantakyi

Kwesi AppiahThe Ghana Football Association has maintained Kwasi Appiah as Coach for the senior national football team, the Black Stars.

The team performed poorly and finished 4th in the just ended AFCON tournament in South Africa, falling short of the set target of lifting the trophy.

But addressing the media at the GFA Secretariat on Friday, FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi said the FA will keep Kwasi Appiah as Head Coach of the team, adding that firing coaches is not the panacea to the team’s poor show.

The FA president admitted the team put up a poor performance and said his outfit will do its best to strengthen the capacity of the coach.

Meanwhile, Kwasi Appiah has apologized to Ghanians for failing to win the trophy. He said he will do his best to harness committed talents in the team in order to enhance their performance in future to advance the Ghana course.

Answering a question as to why he changed Wakaso Mubarak during the semi-final clash with Burkina Faso, Kwasi Appiah explained that the player suffered an injury to the hip and knee during the game, necessitating the change.

He also indicated that Andre Ayew is part of the team and will play a key role in subsequent games as long as he is declared fit by team doctors.
