Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says the GFA has not interfered in his job

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has revealed that he is positively surprised that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has not interfered in his job since he took over insisting the federation has been very supportive.

The revelation quells fears in some quarters that the GFA interferes in the work of coaches when they are appointed to lead national teams.

Appiah took over from Serbian manager Goran Stevanovic at the end of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations but had fears that there could be interference in his job following claims in the media.

However, the former Ghana captain has revealed that he has been given the free hand to work contrary to the suspicion he had before he took over the job.

“The FA, they’ve actually surprised me because when I was given the job, I was thinking that these guys would try to interfere with my job,” the Ghana coach Appiah said.

“I think for some reason may be they knew who I am and actually kept away. They gave me all the support needed as well as my technical team.”

The Black Stars will be making their third successive appearance at the World Cup in June.

Appiah is the first Ghanaian coach to lead the country to the World Cup. The previous appearances were under Serbian managers.
