Former Black Stars manager and current head coach of the Sudanese side Al Khartoum, James Kwesi Appiah, has reportedly been reappointed to the post of Black Stars head coach, three years after he left the role following a disastrous world cup in Brazil.
According to numerous local media reports, the GFA has settled on Appiah and would hand him a two year contract in the job.
He would reportedly be assisted by Maxwell Konadu and Ibrahim Tanko, with former Stars captain Stephen Appiah appointed as team manager.
Richard ‘Olele’ Kingson has also been tapped for the role of goalkeeper’s trainer.
Appiah’s tenure was completely mixed, as he failed at the two major tournaments he presided over – the 2013 Cup of Nations and the 2014 world cup – but masterminded hugely impressive qualifying campaigns to both. The GFA maintains he has ‘grown’ since then and is the right man for job.
If confirmed, Appiah would have the arduous task of leading the Stars to the 2018 World Cup in a qualifying group where they’re already 5 points behind favourites Egypt after just two games.
