Black Stars technical team to leave for UK tour on Friday night
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah and three members of his backroom staff will tour the United Kingdom for a knowledge-sharing exercise ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals.
The quartet will spend some days at Liverpool and also interact with League Managers Association.
Appiah will be joined by his assistant, Maxwell Konadu, Goalkeepers’ coach Nassam Yakubu, Team Doctor Adam Baba and Video Analyst Michael Okyere.
The delegation will spend time with the LMA at St. George’s Park, the national training center for England, to share ideas with some of the leading coaches in England.
The trip has been organized by Black Stars headline sponsor Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and its business partners, Tullow Ghana Limited (TGL) and Standard Chartered Bank.
They will leave Accra on 21 March.
“GNPC is excited at the opportunity for our Black Stars’ technical team to shape up in the UK especially at this time that the English Premier League has become a thriller. We are hopeful that this tour will go a long way in helping Kwasi Appiah and his team in readiness for the World Cup,” Alex Mould, Chief Executive of GNPC said.
“We are grateful to our partners, for agreeing to support the Black Stars in this technical build-up.”
