Kwesi Appiah to relinquish post as manager of Sudanese side Al Khartoum

Kwesi Appiah will stand down as the head coach of Sudanese side Al Khartoum El Watani in the coming days as he has been re-appointed to lead the Ghana national team.

The 56-year-old is replacing Israeli tactician Avram Grant whose contract run out in February after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

The ex-Ghana capatin joined Al Khartoum El Watani in December, 2014 after he was sacked as the head coach of the Black Stars following an abysmal World Cup campaign in Brazil.

He led the team in the CAF Confederation Cup qualifiers but could not reach the the money zone.

Appiah showed tremendous improvement in the north African country where he was named Coach of the Year last year.
