The Captain of the Senior National Team, the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has thrown his weight for a possible come back for former Black Stars coach James Kwasi Appiah.
Asamoah explained that with the previous experience of coaching the Black Stars, the former Captain is very capable of handling the team when given a second chance.
The Black Stars striker spoke on Hot FM in Accra today. “He (Kwesi Appiah) is a good man, he has developed himself in Sudan and I think he is capable of handling the team (Black Stars) again.” Gyan told Hot FM.
The Ghana FA has confirmed it will start to interviewing the shortlisted applicant next week.
A number of high-profile names including Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos and ex-England coach Roy Hodgson believed to be among the front-runners.
But Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan reckons the Sudan-based tactician has improved on the job.
The job became vacant after Avram Grant was made to leave with just a month left on his contract to run out.
Asamoah Gyan also admitted on the same medium that the qualification for World Cup 2018 to be staged in Russia will be very difficult with respect to the current position of the Black Stars.
Egypt leads the table with 6 points, Uganda follows with 4 points and Ghana on 3rd with just a point.
