Coach Kwasi Appiah sacked

Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah has been relieved of his position as head coach of the senior national team.


The decision was reached today at a board meeting of the GFA.


Serbian trainer Milovan Rajevac will replace him as head coach of the Black Stars.


Mr Appiah is being accused of bad faith after he granted a radio interview in which he said that he had not asked for a technical assistant, contradicting the position of the GFA.

Sources close to the GFA say the condition under which coach Milovan accepted to Ghana was that he is made the substantive coach. He refused to be technical assistant to Kwasi Appiah, the source said.


The GFA has scheduled a meeting with Coach Appiah tomorrow Friday, at which the FA will discuss his severance package with him.


Before Ghana’s game against Togo there were reports that the former Ghana captain had been told he will be fired if he failed to win the game in Lome after drawing 1-1 with Uganda at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi on Saturday.


Appiah's popularity in Ghana dwindled immensely after Ghana's poor World Cup outing, with many Ghanaians displeased with his perceived lack of control of the Black Stars team.
