Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah to sign bumper US$ 876,000 contract extension
Kwesi Appiah’s two-year contract extension as Black Stars coach will cost the Ghana Football Association US$ 876,000, according reports.
The Graphic Sports publication on Monday new deal will see the ex-Ghana captain pocket a US$ 100,000 signing on fee.
According to the state-owned newspaper, Appiah’s salary will be upped to US$ 36,500 which is an 83% increment to the US$ 20,000 he earned in his previous contract.
Appiah was appointed Ghana coach in April 2012 and was tasked to win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and qualify the team to the World Cup.
Last week, President Kwesi Nyantakyi announced the Executive Committee of the FA had agreed Appiah continued his job despite failing to progress from the Group stage at the 2014 World Cup finals.
A deal for a mandate extension was reached before the tournament began in last month.
