Coach J. E Sarpong says the performance of Black Stars Coach James Kwesi Appiah will be well assessed and judged when he gets to the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Commenting on Kwesi Appiah's selection for Black Stars matches in an interview with Esther Abankwa of Angel TV, Coach JE Sarpong noted that it's about time the handlers of the Black Stars do sole searching for the team in the interest of the nation, if a player is not disciplined, he should not be given call up.

Coach Sarpong added that Kwesi Appiah needs to be responsible for his actions and should be wary of the fact that his job is on the line, since we do not have a functional FA and anything can happen in the course of the restructuring of Ghana's football.

"Kwasi Appiah has held everything in secrecy. He needs to come out and explain issues. Kwasi Appiah and the technical team should open their eyes, their jobs are on the line. There is no longer an FA to impose players on him, so he needs to be consistent in his selection. Ghanaians dictate a lot, they would also begin to talk, when they become fed up. I have no qualms with the players selected, but he made us understand he was building a team, so what is happening now,"Coach JE Sarpong questioned.

He further advised Coach Kwesi Appiah to be careful because Ghanaians are discerning and would definitely judge him with the 2019 AFCON.

Coach JE Sarpong however blamed the media with the development noting that some journalists over hype some players, and yet when those hyped players are called into the Black Stars team, they fail to perform.
