Analyst: Appiah will fail as Black Stars coach

Analyst: Appiah will fail as Black Stars coach

New Black Stars coach Akwasi Appiah

By Ameenu Shardow

Football analyst Kofi Asiedu insists Akwasi Appiah is bound to fail in his new post as head coach of the Black Stars.

Appiah, 51, was on Monday appointed as the substantive replacement for Serbian Goran Stevanovic after weeks of head hunting.

The settling on the ex Black Stars captain by the Ghana FA came as a surprise to many despite his familiarity with the team as an assistant coach since 2008.

He has since his appointment had many words of support from key members of the team, the Ghana FA and other eminent personalities but Asiedu believes it is only a grand scheme geared towards Appiah’s failure which will finally finish off any future hopes of local coaches being given the nod.

“Let me start this conspiracy theory. They (Ghana FA) are up to a mission,’ he told Takoradi-based Melody FM.

“They know Kwasi Appiah will fail and at the end of the day they will sack him and that argument of  local coaches being competent will be put to the shelve.

“They know he will fail and therefore they are giving him all the support for him to fail. So that Kwasi Appiah who is the well-placed local coach fails they can go in for the foreign coaches.

“What this appointment only shows is that the GFA is broke. The Black Stars job is a $20,000 job and therefore it comes with the kind of coaches we can attract.

“People go on about how a top post the Black Stars job is but we cannot go in for the top notch coaches because the GFA just cannot afford it an this is a fact.”

Appiah who led a team full of locals to an historic gold medal feat at the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique will be unveiled as Black Stars coach at an organized press conference in Accra on April 17.

    Bogus analysis.u are suppose to tell us why Appiah will fail.

  2. COCONUTHEAD says:

    For crying out loud, is this an analysis? I can’t believe someone can get on the air and spew this garbage.

  3. RICHIE ESPRIT. says:

    i think kofi asiedu is ryt about wat he said.this man is not ryt for the job.he does not apply the experience that he has acquired from other coaches and also he can’t control those players who have big egos so he will fail.

  4. Eddy Tadi says:

    Opinion are like noses,every one has it,so why dont u share your opinion and stop the attack.kofi is a real sports analyst.long live Ghana,long live Kofi Asiedu

  5. EMMANUEL ELMINA says:

    For once I thought he was being unlealistic but being a keen listener of his comments especially national issues on the morning sports breakfast at melody~i stand to side with him in the follow up to the Ghana=Zambia clash he had predicted a lose for Ghana and prior to that we should have succumed to Tunisia I tell you his comment raises the eyebrow but yet they are true

    koo darki will never ve trust in his own people da..when the gfa appointed those serbians,they didnt ve any achievement at coaching but yet we supported them bcos they were abrofo..some have already predicting the downfall of akwasi appiah…this stupid mentality must stop or else Africa will forever remain like this…

  7. Adahunzu says:

    Sports analyst so what? where did he get his sports analysts mantle. most people people who know alittle about the game and can talk a good game can be a sports analyst. Ther isnt a specific course for it in ghana. He is totally wrong. This is a conspiracy theory he is throwing out here. The GFA are not criminals. The sport writers have a conflict of interest and are too loud and notorious in this country. I wish we could give one of them the job one day. They talk shit. It is easy to attack and comment on stuff from afar. Kwesi Appiahs hiring is very simple but most people are not even seeing it. He is the best person for the job.
    Continuity, Familiarity, Financialy, W/C,AFCON Qualification window, communication with Players,coaching credentials, Black stars basic succesfull formations knowledge, and he is personable and everyone gets along with him.
    He was once the captain of this team and has been involved with the Black stars bot as a coach and player probably longer than any one in this country. The Stars eviroment is like his back yard.

    • Tardi boy says:

      I think you are correct, given the circumstances that we are, the timing and the fact that GFA is broke, JAA is the best to be offered the Job,but trust me JAA might surprise many, I see him excelling well with B/S. GFA is a crafty organization full of crooks.

  8. has says:

    mr analyst, u hav been too pessimistic in your analysis. the other coaches are just human like appiah, so with the neccessary support he can even do it better. so thumps up for appiah.

  9. richard forster says:

    he is right. e gfa want to use dis opportunity to shift away ghanaians calling for a local coach. they knw he il fail.

  10. benny says:

    ABSOLUTE GARBAGE FROM AN IDIOT.

  11. Chu says:

    Sorry but we certainly know in our hearts that the GFA appointed themselves and to be unvield on 17TH,why wont kwsi fail

  12. Chu says:

    Ghana are jokers of the century. While zambia has pitched camp in RSA, we are now appointing a coach.Nyantakyi must go

  13. tsintsinga lapaz says:

    KWESI APPIAH failure= GFA failure.

    Because they head hunted him,they are equally responsible for his failures.how can somebody think that the gfa will intentionally appoint a coach whom they definitely know will fail? they cant deliberately jeopardise our chance to qualify for 2014 WC.
