Ghana FA silent as Kwesi Appiah's contract expires as Black Stars head coach

Kwasi Appiah has ended his contract as Black Stars head coach with no clear news about his future.

The ex-international signed a two-year contract in May 2017 for a second stint with the Ghana national team.

Despite the initial running out in May last year, he was told to stay on for the two 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe -which he won.

It is unknown if the Ghana Football Association under the leadership of Kurt Okraku will hand him a contract extension.

Appiah had a disastrous Africa Cup of Nations campaign last year in Egypt, where the Black Stars got knocked out at the last 16 stage.

Ghana's next competitive match will be in March, 2020 when the second round qualifiers of the 2022 FIFA World Cup start.

Appiah qualified the Black Stars and coached them at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil.
