Renowned football commentator Mark Gleeson has described Kwesi Appiahâ€™s move to rope in Milovan Rajevac as a member of his backroom staff for the 2014 World Cup as â€˜backwardâ€™ which has far-reaching consequences for coaches in Africa.
Appiah has contacted the Serbian tactician who led the Black Stars to a quarter final finish at the last World Cup in South Africa over a role in his backroom staff for Juneâ€™s tournament in Brazil.
Some including influential members of the Ghana FA appear to be hugely in favour of the coachâ€™s move to return his former boss to the Black Stars set up.
Others are however expressed fury at Appiahâ€™s latest move meant to improve his technical team for the World Cup.
Critics are quick to point the way the 60-year-old left the Ghana job in 2010 for a more lucrative job in Saudi Arabia and say he cannot be trusted. Renowned South African journalist Mark Gleeson has waded into the debate by saying the Ghana coachâ€™s move has the potential of killing the spirit of African coaches.
â€œI think this is a backward move by the Ghana coach. It sends the wrong signal about the quality of African coaches,â€ he said on SuperSportâ€™s Soccer Africa show.
â€œHaving presided over perhaps Ghanaâ€™s best campaign in the qualifiers and now turn around and bring in a foreign coach is a bad move.
â€œYou can keep him [Rajevac] discretely in the stands or on the phone but not come out and say you want him as part of your delegation.â€
Appiah has contacted three others with the possibility of making up his backroom staff for Ghanaâ€™s third successive World Cup appearance in Brazil.
The Black Stars are drawn in Group G where they will be facing Germany, USA and Portugal.
