Kwesi Appiah expresses gratitude to Ghanaians


New Head Coach of the Black Stars Kwesi Appiah says he has set his sights on building a team that will stand the test of time.

Gyan who has already led Ghana to two Cup of Nations appearances and one FIFA World Cup, is now the most capped Black Stars player of all time with 95 appearances.

A former global defender, the 56-year-old has returned as Ghana coach on a two-year contract replacing Israeli Avram Grant.

Other appointments include Stephen Appiah who has been appointed as the Team's Technical Coordinator.

Kwesi Appiah, who parted ways with the Black Stars in September 2014, following a poor world Cup showing, has been reappointed to replace Israeli tactician, Avram Grant, after the position became vacant in February 2017.

Appiah has been charged to qualify and win AFCON 2019, employ possible best measures to qualify the team to the 2018 World Cup and to build a strong national team A and B.
