GFA unveils Kwesi Appiah, Backroom Staff Tuesday


    The Ghana Football Association have set Tuesday, May 16 as the day for the official unveiling of Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah.

    The Association will also reveal the backroom staff of the Black Stars team during the ceremony at its headquarters in Accra.

    Kwesi Appiah was reappointed head coach of the senior national team by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) last month.

    He replaced Israeli trainer, Avram Grant who vacated the post after Ghana’s disastrous campaign at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon.

    Former Ghana international, Ibrahim Tanko is expected to be officially named the assistant to Kwesi Appiah.

    There are also reports that Maxwell Konadu will be handed the second assistant coaching job based on his familiarity with the job.

    Tanko has served on that role with the Cameroon national team and is expected to join forces with Kwesi Appiah who is also returning to the team.

    Appiah will be handed a two-year contract.
