I always tell my players indiscipline will not be tolerated – Coach Kwesi Appiah

Former head coach for the Black Stars of Ghana, James Kwesi Appiah has stressed that he always made it known to his players that he will not tolerate indiscipline in his camp.

The gaffer was in charge of the senior national team of Ghana for the first time between 2012 and 2014 before he was sacked after failing to win the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

After 3 years, he was re-appointed to coach the Black Stars between 2017 and 2019.

During the 2 stints he had with the team, there were times where news of uneasiness and indiscipline in camp came out.

Reliving the past, Coach Kwesi Appiah noted that regardless of what was reported, all the players that passed through his hands were always disciplined.

“All the players that passed through my hand's behavior was fantastic because I made them know that if there is any sense of insubordination you will be replaced by another player.

“Although there will be one or two who will misbehave, the bottom-line was to get the best out of them on the field and talked to in obeying rules and regulations”, the 59-year-old tactician told Light FM.

Coach Appiah has been replaced as the head coach for the Black Stars by coach CK Akonnor.
