Berekum Chelsea General Manager Nana Oduro Sarfo has advised Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah to hold on to his job as pressure mounts on him to quit.
Appiah, ex-Ghana captain, became the first indigenous coach to lead the Black Stars to the World Cup.
But was unable to lead them from the Group stage- the first time in the country’s World Cup history, after suffering defeats to USA and Portugal and drawing with Germany.
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi resigning despite leading the Super Eagles to the round 16 where they lost 1-0 to France.
Five other coaches have left their national teams after failing to meet their targets at the tournament in Brazil.
But Oduro Sarfo believes Appiah must stay on for the next two years.
“Kwesi Appiah has a two year contract and I believe we should allow him to finish it,” Oduro Sarfo told GHANASoccernet.com
“Keshi has problems with NFA but the Ghana FA I believe is satisfied with the work of Kwesi Appiah so far.
“Let’s not compare the two situations but Appiah has shown promise from the performance and I believe another crack at the AFCON with either deny or affirm.”
Appiah is yet to sign a two-year contract extension after the Ghana FA announced they have reached agreement with the trainer.
