Kwesi Appiah has revealed that his sacking in 2014 was politically motivated with former Ghana President John Mahama playing a huge role.

Appiah wrote in his book “Leaders Don’t Have To Yell” that John Mahama asked former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi to sack him after they returned from the World Cup in Brazil.

Ghana endured a disgraceful appearance on and off the field. The team picked just a point from three games while the country was subjected to international ridicule after money was airlifted to pay the players. 

“To anyone who was objectively looking at the facts of the circumstances surrounding Brazil 2014, it was obvious that my termination was an attempt by the powers-that-be to shift blame away from themselves,” Appiah wrote.

“Kwesi Nyantakyi called me to his office that day and informed me that he had been asked by the President of the nation to relieve me of my duties.”

The book, launched last Friday, has nuggets the coach considers key for leadership in general, not just for football specifically.

Kwesi Appiah was reappointed in 2017 and worked for two and a half years.
