Former Ghana Coach Kwesi Appiah reveals he has no regrets taking up the post at the Black Stars.
Appiah returned for a second stint with the National team after his first seemed to have ended in a “bizarre” manner due to incidents which occurred in Brazil prior to his departure.
The ex-Kotoko player was said to have received foul words from some Black Stars players during the team’s campaign at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, couple with camp disruptions which eventually caused the team’s abysmal display in Brazil fueling Appiah’s exit as head Coach.
The Ghana Football Association in 2017 re-appointed the 59-year-old to take up the team where he was tasked to win the 2019 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Having failed to reach his target in Egypt, his contract was however not renewed eventually losing his job as Ghana Coach.
The former Khatoum El-Wataani Coach believes he did his best during his time with the National team.
“I don’t see any regret within my tenure at the national team of Ghana,” he told Light FM.
“I did the best that I could which yielded results. And the most important thing is that you leave a legacy behind which will serve as a precedent for the upcoming talents.
He added, “I was unfortunate then because of most of the time of handling the National Team.
“It was like I must search for quality players to replace the ones fading away, my first time in 2014 was a clear example to replace Essien, Stephen Appiah, Muntari, with Jordan, Atsu, and it continued during my second time.”
Former Kotoko and Hearts of Oak trainer CK Akonnor has been appointed to succeed Kwesi Appiah as Black Stars Coach.
