Black stars head coach, Kwesi Appiah has voiced out his eagerness for a contract extension.
Appiah was re-appointed as Coach of the Black Stars to replace Israeli trainer Avram Grant.
The Ghanaian tactician has been tasked to end Ghana’s Cup of Nations trophy drought by winning next year’s edition of the competition in Cameroon.
The 54-year-old whose current prime objective is to build a team for success says he will embrace a fresh deal.
“I believe if you want to build a team which will be capable to achieve success in the future then two years isn’t enough for a coach,” he spoke to Silver FM.
”Looking at the two-year contract I was given by Ghana FA, it’s not enough for me but I have to prove what I can do within the period.
“I am doing what I can but at the end of the day, if the top hierarchy of the football association thinks I’ve done well and they want me to continue with the job, that’s fine.
“But again, if it happens that as a coach, you are leaving after the first or second year in office, you have to leave a trade mark so that anyone that will replace you won’t find it difficult to continue. That is what I’m doing currently,”
Kwesi Appiah’s contract runs out after the 2019 Cup of Nations tournament.
