Give other coaches the chance - Kwesi Appiah

Immediate past Black Stars coach thinks that other local coaches deserve a shot at the job in the senior men's national team.

The Ghana Football Association opted against extending the contract of Kwesi Appiah after its expiration in December. He, however, believes that other coaches from the local scene should be given an opportunity.

"I personally believe as a nation we need to have a succession plan for our players and coaches, we have to give other coaches opportunity to come close to the national teams so that when one coach is going, we get a good replacement," he told Fox 97.9 FM.

"At a point Tanko had a tournament with the Meteors and I looked around and I realised it's CK [Akonnor] who had coached Eleven Wise, Ashgold, Hearts of Oak and Kotoko and has the experience, so I decided to bring him on board."

"I had a succession plan for the players and coaches to be available whenever we need one. The issue of someone is coming to replace me is not an issue, the most important thing is whether the nation has competent coaches to take over whenever we need one".
