Coach Kwesi Appiah to get 2-year contract extension – Reports
Despite many pleas amidst anger that the Black Stars coach should be
sacked, Coach Kwesi Appiah is set to be given a new contract which will
see him stay with the team until after the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in
Cameroon, Ghanacrusader sources have confirmed.
According to our trusted sources, a recent meeting between President Akufo-Addo and coach James Kwesi Appiah proved productive.
The President of Ghana will direct the Ghana Football Association’s Normalisation Committee to maintain Kwesi Appiah, our sources said.
Our Jubilee House sources revealed that the discussion the Coach had with the President on July 30, 2019 was centred on the coach’s long-term future with the national team following the country’s calamitous campaign in Egypt. And the coach will be given a new contract before his contract runs out in December 2019.
In the midst of intense bashing on his technical abilities, Kwesi Appiah has received some backing from some football handlers and pundits who have called for him to be maintained.
Deputy Minister for Transport, Nii Kwartei Titus Glove believes coach Kwesi Appiah after failing to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations should be given another chance for him to put measures in place to end Ghana’s trophy drought spanning over three decades.
