Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah feels he can take up the challenge as a football Coach.
Unlike many retired footballers, the former Juventus star has played little role in football management only serving as the team coordinator for the Black Stars.
Appiah, 39, remains one of Ghana’s most celebrated captains after leading the Black Stars for seven years where he captained the team in two World Cups thus in 2006 and 2010.
His leadership qualities have seen many calling for him to embrace an opportunity in Coaching, something the former Fenerbache man is ready to accept.
“In being a manager or a football coach, the most important thing is how to handle the players,” he told with Carol Tshabalala of SuperSport.
“You can’t show the players how to play the game. The only thing you can show them is the system that you want to play or the way you want them to move on the pitch.”
“The most important thing is that you have 23 adults that have different egos, and you have to manage them.
“I think I have the ability, being the captain for 8 years, and not having trouble with any player.”
In 2005, Appiah made history as the first captain to ever lead the Black Stars to a FIFA World Cup after Ghana gain qualification to Germany 2006 following a victory over Uganda.
