Former Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has reportedly applied for the vacant Black Stars coaching position.
The Black Stars coaching job became vacant after interim coach Otto Addo announced his resignation after the debacle in Qatar where the team finished bottom of the table following losses to Portugal and Uruguay in Group H.
Appiah, who was a former player and coach for the team on two separate occasions, has expressed that he is still interested in the post after Addo left to continue his permanent job at Dortmund in Germany.
He admitted to having applied for the position at Sompa Sports. “When I heard the FA state that no Ghanaians had applied, I thought that as a Ghanaian, I had to apply to show that we can prove ourselves, therefore I added my name to the foreign list,” the applicant said.
The GFA reports that over sixty applications—the majority of which were from international coaches—have been received.
FA spokesperson Henry Asante Twum has confirmed that over 60 coaches have applied for the position. “Around 60 coaches have applied for the Black Stars coaching position, and those coaches are from Europe and South America.”
As preparations for the AFCON 2023 qualifiers get underway, the federation anticipates announcing a new coach before the second month of the year.
