Black Stars head coach, James Kwesi Appiah, has established the difficulties involved in handling the senior national team but has reiterated his focus on building a formidable team for the future.
Appiah was reappointed as Black Stars coach back in May after Avram Grant made a disappointing tenure at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations which prompted his resignation from the post.
In an interview with Accra based radio station Happy FM, Appiah emphasized the need to build a formidable team despite the challenges accompanied with being at the helm of affairs.
“It’s a challenging job but the most important thing is to have your plan as coach and try to implement it. People think the job is that easy but when you take up the mantle you should try do your best which a trying to do now by building a formidable team,” Appiah said.
“My main ambition is to 2019 AFCON and we are working towards it but I cannot guarantee the trophy because I am not God and cannot predict the future yet I am positive”
The FA and the Ministry have given me free hand to operate and so I can say no one can impose players on me, including the Black Stars management Committee members.
Grant started Ghana’s failed 2018 FIFA World Cup for the Black Stars but could only manage a point out of a possible six.
