Akwasi Appiah not desperate for new Ghana deal

Akwasi Appiah insists he is not desperate to secure a contract extension as coach of Ghana as pressure cranks up on the Ghana FA to make the offer following Ghana’s successful World Cup qualifying campaign.

Appiah was appointed in 2012 with the main aim of qualifying the Black Stars to the 2014 World Cup.

Many have since called on the Ghana FA to hand the ex Asante Kotoko defender a fresh deal following his success in qualifying Ghana to next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

The Ghana FA however appear to be stalling with Appiah’s current contract set to expire after the World Cup.

But Appiah insists he is desperate to secure an extension with his focus fully on preparing the side for the finals.

“I am not agitating for a contract extension now,” he told GTV’s Stage Africa show.

“The Ghana Football Association is yet to speak to me about it but my focus now is preparing the team to do well at the World Cup. If they approach me, fine by me.”

Ghana were impressive during the qualifiers as they blew away some of the best teams on the African continent.

The Black Stars will be facing Germany, Portugal and USA in Group G at next year’s finals in Brazil.

    Coach Appiah, greetings to you. I am not sure if you’re able to read my piece but a couple of my guys all made some suggestions which i agree with.

    Is it possible for us to try out the 5-3-2 B or 3-5-2 formation? Basically, it is 3 central backs, and 2 wing men who will alternate between the flanks and midfield, while they provide support to lateral side of defence. And then 3 midfielders and 2 forwards.

    LWB/LWM–Kwadwo has excelled in this role and can execute the job at left side. A player who has speed, can track back, and has good control and possession can take the right side. I’ll keep my suggestions to myself :-)

    The three midfielders can be drafted to play;

    1.traditional role with one being used as CAM.
    2.traditional role with one being used as CDM(Will help tigthen backline)

    We have world class men for above proposal.

    Attack needs no further emphasis… babyjet is on fire, he will blend well with three promising attackers(names withheld :-) )

    NOW,Our strength can come from three strong defenders.. I know we have all being talking about our defensive system but with I.V,J.B,J.M,J.M,J.A,R.S as central defenders, I believe three experienced strong men among them can be drafted to do the job at the highest level.

    KWARASEY VS DAUDA…to be continued :-)

    Who said our group members aint scared!! …Get outta ya dreams fella’s. We can win our group with hard work and great prep.

    Congrats Coach Appiah! and yeah we wanna see Tornado on the bench giving support to the gallant men.

    Let’s beat my resident country for the third time!
    Oseeeeyyy GHANA!

    (btw: This is just a constructive suggestion, no insults fellas ..lol)

    Cheers!

    My two cents :-)
