Ghana Black Stars Coach: I’m not resigning

James-Kwesi-AppiahGhana coach Kwesi Appiah has denied rumours about his intended resignation, Goal Ghana can confirm.

Appiah, who is on an extended two-year contract with the Ghana FA, has confided in close associates that he has no intention of leaving his post.

“The news came as a shock to me that I have resigned or will be resigning,” the 54-year-old told a close family member, Goal can reveal. “It is never true and I have not thought of it at all.”

It was reported widely that the former Ghana international was gearing up to pack should the football governing body in his west African country decides to rope in a foreign technical director for the Black Stars ahead of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Appiah, who will be returning from the US on Thursday, is expected to meet GFA officials to clarify that aspect of news because he has no express knowledge about it as the head of the technical bench.

Appiah is reportedly earning $25,000 after tax in his new two-year contract extension as coach of the Black Stars. He was employed in April 2012 and has led Ghana to an Afcon and a World Cup in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
