Ghana Football Association vice President George Afriyie has revealed the Association’s decision to dissolve the entire technical staff of the Black Stars team.
According to the Planners FC owner, new Coach Kwesi Appiah is likely to work with a new technical team at the Black Stars.
Reports have already hinted the appointment of former Ghanaian internationals Ibrahim Tanko, Stephen Appiah, Richard Kingson and Augustine Ahinful as the new backroom staff for the Black Stars.
George Afriyie has however confirmed changes are likely to occur in the technical team.
“Kwesi Appiah is the right coach for Ghana looking at the current circumatances. What is important to happen now is that Ghana Football Association have agreed to make changes in the backroom staff [which Avram Grant left behind]. We have the medical and the technical aspect so it will be necessary to sit down with Appiah on the changes,” Afriyie told Royal TV.
“We will not sabotage any decisions from him but we cannot also allow him to bring any coach he thinks can help his course. The GFA must be involved in such crucial decisions because we are planning for the future. We need someone who can fill the void when he is not around or has landed a lucrative contract in future which is more than what he is going to have now and he is ready to leave.
“If coaches chose their assistants without any input from the GFA in the past, then Appiah wouldn’t have become an assistant under Cluade Le Roy because the Frenchman could’ve said that he will bring his own to feel secured.
Head Coach Kwesi Appiah officially begun work as Black Stars Coach today.
