2014 World Cup: Legend Stephen Appiah hails Ghana coach as the perfect leader for Black Stars
Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah has touted Kwesi Appiah as the ‘perfect’ leader of the Black Stars ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Appiah will guide the Africans to the World Cup in the South American country, becoming the first indigenous coach to do so.
The Black Stars find themselves in a difficult group G alongside old foes USA and Germany as well as Portugal.
All eyes will be on the former Kotoko defender to excel in Brazil after two previous feats were achieved by Serbians.
Stephen Appiah, who captained the Black Stars to two World Cups, believes the current trainer is the perfect leader of the team ahead of the trip to Brazil.
“Kwesi Appiah is in perfect physical and mental shape which is a good sign of a perfect group leader” he said.
“Over the period his team (players) has shown a lot of commitment to him.
“I think it is a good sign which will lead to many more successes.
“There is more motivation in the team. This is a group leader”.
Ghana will open their campaign against USA before they face Germany and Portugal.
