Kwesi Appiah must admits he needs help to succeed as Ghana coach - ace journalist Owusu-Bempah
Kwesi Appiah will decide his Ghana future latest next week

Astute Ghanaian Journalist Osei Owusu-Bempah says Kwesi Appiah needs to upgrade his knowledge of the game to succeed as Black Stars coach.

Appiah’s future has been a matter of intense conjecture in the local media with mounting reports claiming he will step down if the Ghana FA hire the services of technical director.

The Ghana FA has denied reports it intends appointing Serbian interim boss Ljubinko Drulovic to fashion out a technical policy for the association.

The 54-year-old supervised Ghana’s disastrous campaign at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil which has heightened calls for his two-year renewal mandate to be reviewed.

It has been widely reported that the country’s Sports Ministry have asked the football association to freeze plans to offer him a new deal pending further consultations as fears grow over his ability to chalk successes with the team.

The former broadcaster and staunch Kotoko supporter feels Appiah lacks the tactical and managerial competence and must upgrade his knowledge to be a shining example.

“I have been a chief supporter of Kwesi and everybody know my stance but the truth of the matter is that he needs help,” he told Accra-based Oman FM

“I knew he will have challenges dealing with players with such egos but I didn’t know he would be overwhelmed like it happened in Brazil.

“When you are a coach and you cannot control the dressing room, then that’s a serious matter.

“If you can’t do that in the dressing room, then how will they respect your tactics? He must admit he needs help.

“As far as I’m concerned that’s key for any coach to succeed. He also had issues with tactics and that’s why I’m saying he needs help.

“He must go for proper training and stop these three-week attachments with Man City business. “When we say these things, it doesn’t mean we don’t like him. In fact we do and want him to thrive in the role. But the stark reality is that he needs to upgrade and that’s the bottom line.”

Appiah delayed his return to Ghana last week but will now touch base  this week to hold showdown talks with the Ghana FA over his future.

    Ghanaians should stop for a second and face reality.It's not a rocket science to figure out that AA is not a coach for the black stars. Has AA any coaching badge at all.The GFA expedimented and the experiment is woefully gone per shape. AA should quit,get himself training and start from scratch .The GFA should be bold to sack him. Football is a multi-billion dollar business.Ghana needs a proper and smart coach.You can a bad FA but a good coach to succeed but you can't have a bad coach and good FA to succeed.The epitome is the coach.AA should go period.

    Kwesi Appiah has zeal for the job but not according to knowledge. Another typical example is Fatau Dauda.

    AA is the best and he'll surely win us AFCON this time.
