I have no interest in coaching for now – Ex-Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah


Former Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah says he has decided to step aside and rest from coaching for now.

The 61-year-old has been without a team since parting ways with the senior national team of Ghana, the Black Stars.

Appiah’s contract was not renewed by the Ghana Football Association after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The former Al Khartoum manager was replaced by CK Akonnor on a two-year deal.

“I have decided to step aside and rest from coaching now,” he told Rainbow Sports.

“If I want to coach there are about ten clubs who are inquiring about my service. I think I need to rest to gain strength with my age now.

“I am independent, and I haven’t received any offer from any club in Ghana. Samatex and Bibiani Gold Stars haven’t sent me any offer, and I think it’s just a rumour.

According to coach Appiah, the coaching job in Ghana is not easy.

“Coaching isn’t easy in Ghana, and it contains much pressure. Ghanaians always seek results, and it gives you the coach much pressure,” he added.

“I can decide to come back into coaching anytime but am not willing to come in now. I may be a call to work for the Football Association as a technical director, but I think I need to rest,” he added.
