Black Stars coach to construct astro turf in Ashaiman
Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah wants to facilitate the construction of a multi-purpose artificial training facility and turf for the people of Ashaiman after visiting the community.
Appiah was in Ashaiman as part of familiarization work by his charity foundation which he launched earlier this year. The 57-year feels the football talent pool in Ashaiman justifies the construction of an astro turf in the area.
“There are so many areas here [in Ashaiman] where we can get an artificial turf where all the sporting activities can take place so the people can go out there and play.
“Most people in Ashaiman are really good at sports and we need to create these centers to help them and it will help the nation as well,” he said. Appiah has also partnered German firm JVG-Thorma to construct a solar plant in the same area, valued at $14.5m.
