The Board Chairman of National Sports Authority, Kwadwo Baah Agyemang has advised Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah to be consistent with his team building process for future assignments beginning with AFCON 2019.
He indicated that it is time to move on after the Black Star failed to qualify for the upcoming World Cup to be held in Russia next year.
Appiah supervised four games out of the six matches, amassing 6 points. Avram Grant before departing handled Ghana’s first two games and snatched just a point.
The former Asante Kotoko defender is credited to have given more youngsters the opportunity to feature for the national tean . Appiah handed debuts to players like Christian Atsu, Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Ebenezer Ofori and recently Kasim Nuhu, Edwin Gyasi, Nanac Ampomah, Patrick Twumasi and others
The former Legislature mentioned that Appiah is on course and that all must rally behind him to succeed in his second stint with the Black Stars.
“For me, I think his team building is on course, if you’ve really assessed his call ups. He has called various players and I believe that he has been able to studied and assessed each of the players. I think now he has gotten a core of the group he intends to work with”, he told JoySports
“He should be consistent moving forward and maybe something good can come from them”,
Appiah has picked his first win in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers beating Ethiopia 5-0 in Kumasi.
He guided Ghana to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
