Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has promised to help make the Black Stars great once more.
The 56-year-old was given a rousing welcome at the Kotoka International Airport on Friday ahead of his unveiling as head coach of the Black Stars next week.
Addressing the media at the Airport on his arrival, the former Al Khartoum coach said,” “I really appreciate everyone who came to welcome me, you spent your time and money to come here, I really appreciate that,” he said
“I always believe the voice of the people is the voice of God and will take this opportunity to thank the president of the nation, the Ghana Football Association and every Ghanaian for giving me the second chance to coach the national team.”
“I will do the best that I can but I can never do it without your help, I will need the prayers and support of every Ghanaian to make our Black Stars great again.

Appiah will officially begin work on May 1 but there has been a lot of speculation over his back room staff. GFA spokesperson, Ibrahim Sanni Daara, said that the FA and Kwesi Appiah would have to discuss such matters first before stating anything.
Maxwell Konadu and Ibrahim Tanko have been tipped to be part of Appiah’s backroom staff but the Ghana FA said it could neither “deny nor confirm” these names and reports.
