Ghana FA Executive Committee member Randy Abbey believes the Black Stars’ technical team under coach Kwesi Appiah needs some beefing up before the 2014 World Cup.

The former Black Stars captain has made history by becoming the first Ghanaian to lead the side to World Cup qualification.

Ghana qualified for its third successive finals in grand fashion – smashing teams along the way to clinch one of the five qualification slots for Africa.

Some however are however of the view that coach Kwesi Appiah needs some sort of technical assistance to address lapses within the team.

Sceptics have even called for a ‘superior technical brain’ to either replace or supersede Appiah to make Ghana stronger going into the finals which kicks off in June in Brazil.

And though Randy Abbey believes there are technical challenges within the coach’s set up, the Ghana FA Executive Committee member says Appiah is the best to address these concerns.

“One key area will be the coach’s backroom staff for the World Cup,” he said.

“The coach has challenges but I have a lot of confidence in our coach and his ability to know what is right for him to achieve results.”

Ghana hope to go at least one better than its quarter final finish in the last World Cup in South Africa.

The Black Stars are drawn in a tough group this term consisting Germany, Portugal and USA.

    I have said it before that our coach needs to contact someone like Guardiola to work with our team. In his absence, we can talk to other top world class coaches including Pelligrini. It’s a win-win situation. Obviously, Guardiola gets to participate in the World Cup (even if working in the background) and our coach will not be afraid of losing his job by inviting a foreign coach to work with him. If all else fail, get Desailley, Stephen Appiah, Otto Addo to come on board to give the needed support and pep talk to our men. All hands on deck this time.

    Oh Ghanaians, we always fail to cherish our own. Akwasi Appiah has been very instrumental and productive during the qualifications, why don’t we provide him with the necessary support to deliver desired results. Instead we wanna look up to a white man as if to say we africans were born without brains!!!!! A word to the wise….

  5. sticky says:

    @ mike hey! Don’t u know that we Africans we Don’t have brains? He will invites midfielders who will leave the ball and pegg an opponent in the 18 yard box like we all saw against burkina faso in the afcon .bush black coaches
