Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah has made the revelations that he has never taken a bribe before handing a call-up to any player in his coaching career.
There is the general notion that National team coaches demand bribe from players before they invite them to play for the national teams.
Coach Appiah made these revelations when he granted an interview with Accra based Happy FM on the “Anopa bosoo” Sports and he said it confidently that he has never taken a bribe from any player. He however warned his technical staff he will relieve whoever does that from his duties in the team.
“You can’t even try it because I’m rich in my own way. When they say somebody is rich, it does not mean you have money to look after the whole Ghana but you’re called a rich man because you have your peace of mind. You can have whatever you want at any given time without nobody’s help, that’s how you are considered rich,” says Appiah .
“If I have let’s say GHC 1,000 and I know that’s enough to take care my family, I’m content with it so why should I try to seek for more from people, but it’s like people know my character so they don’t approach me with such talks.”
He continued that “If you have a player and maybe he’s good, but because of trying to induce me to call him will even make me lose interest in the player. Because I believe if the player is good you don’t need to pay any bribe before he can earn a call up.”
