Former Asante Kotoko defender Joseph Hendricks has suggested Ghana Football Association bring back Coach Kwesi Appiah to lead the Black Stars.
Appiah’s contract with the senior national team ended in December 2019 and his assistant, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, was named to replace him
After 20 months, and 10 games with nothing to show for, Ghanaians have called for the sack of CK
Reports say the Ghana FA will love to bring Herve Renard back however the government that pays Black stars coaches has insisted only a local coach should be leading the Black stars
Hendricks believes if the government wants a local Coach then the Ghana FA should re-appoint Appiah
In an interview with Spice Fm, he stated that: “I would suggest we bring back Kwesi Appiah if we want a Local Coach because he already has the experience ahead of any other who would come n learn on the job but Kwesi Appiah has already learned from his mistakes.
“Local Coaches have problems working for the Black Stars because of the mentality that they have achieved and are successful than the Local Managers looking at their bank accounts” – He added.
The 60-year-old was first Ghanaian coach to qualify the Black Stars to the first ever World Cup in 2014, the tactician has been criticized by most football lovers due to the poor performance of the Black Stars in the just ended AFCON in Egypt.
