Chaotic Kenya Airways botches Ghana coach's trip to open Black Stars training camp

Kwesi Appiah will travel to join the Black Stars on Monday night

Ghana coach Kwasi Appiah and some members of his technical team were unable to travel on Sunday  to open the side’s training camp in Nairobi ahead of the weekend’s thanks to a big mess by Kenya Airways.

The Black Stars coach and his team had long booked the flight to Nairobi for the training camp ahead of Saturday’s game against Malawi in Lilongwe in the final qualifier for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Reports says the coach and his backroom staff were shocked to find out that there were no seats available for them on the Kenya Airways flight even though they were already booked.

The inept and chaotic Kenyan airline also failed to pick other passengers who were travelling from Accra to Nairobi which led to chaos in the departure hall at the Kotoko International Airport.

Kenya Airways attendants told the passengers that the flight was almost full from its Freetown leg which ruled out travel for the many who had long paid to travel.

Kenya Airways seriously botched Ghana’s plans of training from Monday in Nairobi as they seek to maintain their 2-0 first leg advantage over Malawi to qualify for the 2013 Nations Cup.

According to the airline, only five seats were available which saw Daniel Nii Adjei, Fatau Dauda, Philemon McCarthy, Emmanuel Clottey and welfare officer Sabahn Quaye making the trip, whilst Appiah was left behind to join the remaining group 24-hours later.

Appiah will leave in the company of his assistant, Maxwell Konadu, who jetted into town on Monday morning after guiding the Black Satellites to qualification for the 2013 African Youth Championship despite suffering 1-3 loss against the Moroccans last Sunday in Rabat.

They are expected to be joined by their foreign counterparts on Monday to begin preparations for the crucial qualifier against the Flames.

The Stars will leave for Lilongwe on Friday for the encounter fixed for Saturday, October 8 at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.

The Ghanaians were 2-0 winners in the first leg held in Accra last September, meaning the Flames must score at least three unanswered goals to oust the four-time African champions from the roll call for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

    Before the match, I predicted that this will make or break Appiah’s tenure as Stars coach but let emphasize on the positives and face the future with hope.
