Chairman of Ghana’s CHAN team, Fred Pappoe insists coach Akwasi Appiah is not being over-stretched as he assumes responsibility for the side.
The Black Stars coach is currently in camp with the first batch of twenty seven (27) players called up from the various Premier League sides.
There are however concerns being raised over the increased workload of Appiah who is looking to win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
But Pappoe explains the Local Black Stars job will not interfere with the Ghana coach’s work with the A team.
“It is a matter of looking at the calendar and at this time where there is no or little activity with the Black Stars, Akwasi Appiah will be able to do the job without any hitches,” he told Accra-based Radio XYZ.
Milovan Rajevac served as coach of both teams during his tenure as the technical head of the Black Stars between 2008-2010.
The Serbian led the Local Black Stars to a silver medal finish at the maiden edition of the CHAN tournament hosted in the Ivory Coast.
The CHAN tournament is the local version of the Africa Cup of Nations only meant for players plying their trade on the continent.
