Published on: 09 January 2019

Head coach of the national team Kwesi Appiah is set to extend his contract with the Black Stars ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations 2019. 

Spokesperson of the Normalisation Committee Dan Kwaku Yeboah revealed to Accra based radio station Citi FM that talks have began on extending the contract of the gaffer, who current deal expires in April.

“There has been the need to renew coach Kwesi Appiah’s contract,” Dan Kwaku Yeboah told Citi FM.

“Primarily because at the time he was being signed as the Black Stars coach he was given a two year contract with the arrangement that the Afcon will be played in January 2019.”

“Fortunately or unfortunately it has been shifted to June so if we don’t renew his contract it will mean that by June contractually he will not be an employee of the Ghana Football Association so there is the need to renew.”

“There have been preliminary meetings between Coach Kwesi Appiah,Dr Kofi Amoah and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah.”

“The details are yet to be made public because it has not been finalized yet,” Spokesperson for the Normalization Committee Dan Kweku Yeboah revealed”.

Kwesi Appiah was tasked to win AFCON 2019 after signing a two year deal with the Ghana Football Association in 2017.
