Kwesi Appiah tipped for return as Ghana coach after AFCON exit

Ghana finished fourth in Gabon with Coach Avram Grant tendering in his resignation. The Israeli who succeeded Kwesi Appiah spent two years with the national team. He took over in 2014 where he led the team to the finals of the Africa Cup of Nations 2015 in Equatorial Guinea.
