Kwesi Appiah is not a good manager - Fiifi Tackie

Spokesperson for the Ayew family, Fiifi Tackie, has been vocal since the publication of Ghana’s players list for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya on Saturday.

Andre and Jordan Ayew were left out once more by coach Kwesi Appiah who said he invited only those who are committed to the national team.

That explanation didn't go down well with the Ayew family who claims the coach was casting insinuations.

"Kwesi Appiah is a coach but not a manager or a good manager to say the least," Tackie told Atinka FM.

"We are not fighting Kwesi for sidelining the Ayews but what we're contending is the notion that they are not committed to the national team.

"A lot of Kwesi Appiah's remarks recently after the Ayews exclusion from the team have been purely insinuations. He casts insinuations at the players and we know why he is doing that," he added.

The brothers have not been recalled to the outfit since September last year after they pulled out of a 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Congo for health reasons.
