World Cup 2014: Kwadwo Asamoah reveals Ghana players' full support for coach Appiah

Published on: 20 March 2014
Kwadwo Asamoah is one of Ghana's key players going into the World Cup.

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah insists all the Black Stars players are fully behind coach Kwesi Appiah to lead them to the 2014 World Cup despite talk for a foreign assistant for the Ghanaian manager.

Since leading the team to the World Cup, Appiah has had to deal with rumours that the Ghana FA want to bring in a foreigner to assist him in Brazil.

German coach Klaus Topmmoeller was linked with a technical director job with the Black Stars - a report which was rubbished by the Ghana FA.

Two weeks ago Ghana's leading football news website, reported that Appiah himself had asked ex-coach Milovan Rajevac to join his technical bench as a member of his backroom staff.

But Asamoah says the players are fully behind Appiah believing that he can deliver the World Cup title for Ghana.

"He's been the one that we've been with during the qualification so we, the players still believe in him," Asamoah told BBC World Service.

"If we don't believe in him it's going to be difficult for us and for him."

Asamoah added: "We have him right now so we have to do out maximum best to help him and support him."

"When we the players help the coach that is also when the coach will get confidence to do his job."

Ghana face a tough task at the World Cup as they have been drawn in Group G where they face Germany, Portugal and the United States.

    Is only Ghanaians ll allowed a quack doc near its national team players to administered them with POISON!! A magic healer who has no license and has been tagged as dangerous by her own country health officials shouldn't be entertain at all!! Was she able to cure Dede of his shoulder injuries? What about John mensah injuries? Why didn't the Serbs used this lady to heal their injury prone WC squad in south Africa? We are indeed NATION OF JOKERS!!

    Has glen Johnson gone back to this Serbian magic healer for treatment again? Has frank lampard gone back to this magic healer for any treatment? Has van persie gone back to this QUACK DOCTOR for any further treatment? Why didn't this ' famous magic healer healed our injured proned 2012 afcon squad and why hasn't Serbians fa tapped into this awesome magic healing remedies of this so called famous lady? Ghanaians really have SMALL MINDS and am not surprised any wack person with questionable reputation can outsmart us because of too many villagers at the helm of affairs!! This lady is ADMINISTRATING POISON TO PLAYERS but frickling lil brains of our good for nothing sugar daddies cannot use their brains to think because of getting some cheap Serbian pussy!! This is medicine and we all know the long lasting effects of administrating an UNTESTED, UNAPPROVED AND PROBABLY ILLEGAL HUMAN OR HORSE PLACENTAL on injuries of timid Ghanaian footballers!!! If this lady is so good, I don't think ghana can afford her services but we always go for anything WHITE whether is poison or not!

    Am even more surprised by akwasi appiah!! How can u asked this Serbian for help when u did far better than him!! **** I can't believe this timid Ghanaian mentality! What has milo accomplished that u haven't even surpassed! What AA! U even have a smooth, better and more attacking team than this Serbian who has failed in all his sojourn for riches!! He was fired by Saudi Arabia for poor results, fired by Qatar for losing against India and Vietnam, snubbed by Egypt because the Egyptians are not fools like ghanaians and finally snubbed by the beninous because they know his pathetic CV and bad pack the bus tactics doesn't go with his HIGH PRICE FEE! Apart from Ghana, this guy is simply not sought after!! Am not surprised that the lazy Ghanaian media full of medicroe journalists with questionable credentials always give useless titles to any WHITEMAN! Tactician where?!! Milo tactics didn't win us anything!!

    Is marijana kovacevic a pharmacist, a medical doctor or a MAGICIAN who uses supernatural powers to heal injuries! Has she shown his doctoral certificates to our dummy officials? How much does she charge per player because she charged 6,300 dollars for six hours and even charges more when the player is a superstar!! How can we employ someone whose own country has tagged her as quack and fraud! God should have mercy on this country!! This lady is not different from all the quack doctors in Ghana and I guess if she was a ghanaian, she ll not be allow near our national team!! I just pity the poor Ghanaian tax payers because our leaders are indeed stupid and inept!! This is- ccriminal because before any person can practise any profession in this country he or she should have a valid license but the last time I checked this Serbian healer has non and her own country doesn't know whether she is a doctor, pharmacist or magician!!
