Sports Minister pledges Governments support for Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah

The Minister of Youth and Sports Hon. Isaac Asiamah has guaranteed government’s support for new Black Stars Head coach Kwesi Appiah.

Appiah who signed a two year deal with the GFA is making his second stint as Black Stars trainer after previously managing the team from 2012 to 2014.

The minister heaped praises on the former AS Khartoum man and assured him government’s backing in his role as head coach.

“He’s got the pedigree and experience over the years and is a very humble gentleman,” the Minister said “Ghanaians generally love him, and as government we will give him all the support that he needs to succeed, so that he can win more laurels for Ghana. That is our job.”

“I believe in local content and that is evident in the appointment of Kwasi Appiah. “We have not just appointed a local coach, but a very competent local coach.”

“We supported Avram Grant and he got nothing for us, so how much more the man [Kwesi Appiah] who took us to the world cup.” Kwesi Appiah’ first assignment as Black Stars Head Coach will be a tricky friendly against Mexico in June.
