Kwasi Appiah applies for vacant Black Stars job

Kwasi Appiah

The former Ghana coach confirmed his application to journalist Jerome Otchere, who shared the news on Twitter.

“Just got off the phone with Coach Kwasi Appiah on his interest and application for the @GhanaBlackstars job. He confirms he’s applied for the vacant position, and he’s relishing a third comeback. I wished him well,” Otchere tweeted on Thursday.

This comes after Appiah had said he would be willing to taking over as head coach of the Black Stars again if asked.

The 62-year-old has already served the national team twice; during his first spell, which lasted from 2012 to 2014, he led Ghana to the World Cup in Brazil.

In 2017, Appiah was rehired to replace Israeli manager Avram Grant as Black Stars coach.

However, as a result of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) declining the opportunity to extend it, his term came to a conclusion on December 31, 2019.

Since then, he hasn’t been in charge of any professional teams, though he has been a coach at the Kenpong Football Academy.

In the meantime, the GFA reported last week that more than 60 coaches had submitted applications for the Black Stars position.

Most of the candidates, according to Henry Asante Twum, the GFA’s director of communications, came from South America and Europe.

Since Otto Addo resigned from the role following the team’s group-stage elimination from the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Ghana has been without a coach.
