I will need Ghanaians’ support to make Black Stars great again – Kwesi Appiah

Ghana’s re-appointed coach Kwesi Appiah has promised to make amends in his second term as the Black Stars coach with an assurance that he will make the national team great again!

Appiah, 56, arrived in Ghana from Sudan to a rousing welcome by some soccer fans, officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), and some Ghanaian sports journalists.

The former Al Khartoum of Sudan coach, who would be unveiled next week at the GFA headquarters to begin a second stint as Black Stars coach, has called on every Ghanaian to rally behind him in other to ensure success for the Stars.

“I will do the best that I can but I can never do it without your help, I will need the prayers and support of every Ghanaian to make our Black Stars great again”.

He thanked all those who reposed confidence in him and promised to make the Stars thick again.

“I always believe the voice of the people is the voice of God and I will take this opportunity to thank the president of the nation, the GFA and every Ghanaian for giving me the second chance to coach the national team”.

Kwesi Appiah was handed a two-year deal by the GFA earlier this month as a replacement for former coach Avram Grant.

Apart from qualifying Ghana to the next African Cup of Nations, Appiah will also embark on a Herculean task of qualifying the Black Stars to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Ghana currently have just a single point from two World Cup qualifying games and are five points behind Group E leaders Egypt. Uganda and Congo-Brazzaville are the other two teams in the group.
