Ghana coach to go on attachment at European clubs before World Cup

Kwesi Appiah will go on knowledge-sharing prograames with European clubs.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah will have knowledge-sharing programmes with the technical teams of stellar European clubs ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals.  

It forms part of preparations towards Ghana’s campaign in Brazil which looks tough after drawing Germany, Portugal and USA in Group G.

Appiah is expected to again exchange technical ideas in the game as he gets to rub shoulders with the best coaches in the world.

The ex-international in April this year, spent two weeks at Manchester City’s Carrington training ground before playing two World Cup qualifiers.

“We will also be sending our technical team members including the head coach on attachment to a number of European clubs as a way of building their confidence and also upgrading their skills towards the World Cup,” Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi confirmed.

“Beyond that we shall also be doing a review of the adequacy or otherwise of our technical team in order to see which areas we need to fill in the gaps.”

Appiah has played 22 matches since his appointment in April 2012 and has registered 14 wins; five defeats and 3 draws.

    I prefer the special oné.

  2. Kelly meshacks says:

    Which team is he going to ?

  3. iantwii says:

    CHELSEA OR JUVENTUS

  4. spellBOUND says:

    ths is the best idea i’ve heard to date. AA, absorb all you can on these attachments. study the european mentality and management style.

    add this to our physicality and there will be success.

  5. sports.com.gh says:

    Good move in the right direction. Let us cherish our own and stop relying on foreigners. Everything is possible with God on our side Appiah will win the world cup. Foreigners are not more of human beings than our own Ghanaians

  6. real Sabacious says:

    Can’t stop laughing Hahaha! Where’s Randy Abbey? If AA is good up to the task ahead, why this sudden attachment? ? Anyway he will be the only coach among the 32 to go for attachment .the man need technical director! Simply

    • benny says:

      @ REAL SABACIOUS– I don’t get your point. Going on attachment doesn’t mean AA is not good. All the top coaches are connected and share ideas. They learn from one another.
      The only way to get AA to benefit from such input is what the GFA is doing, putting AA on attachment. At the moment,he is unknown.
      Hopefully after the WC, AA will be well connected with the elites of world football and would share knowledge with them directly without it becoming a public caption for consumption.
      Come on man, let give due credit to AA.
      This man is sending us to the world cup, qualifying under difficult circumstances.
      No Essien,Ayew,KPB ,free three points to Zambia ,we lost to Zambia.
      I believe AA will prove to the world that given the chance,anything is possible.

      • spellBOUND says:

        real sabacious could be right that AA is at least in need of some technical improvement. but this attachment could also symbolize he seriousness that the GFA has in the team, and wants to leave no stone unturned. whatever the reason, its a good decision.

      • kkknj says:

        i do love your comment, benny and i wish they send Konadu too and many more so that we do these things ourselves. No bilingual coach for the bs. By this Kwame Nkrumah would be more happier than anything.He will say now my people are getting it into their heads that no foreign can save our country.

  7. Papa Nkrumah says:

    Very disappointed with this arrangement. In fact, Ghanaians talk too much. What idea is our coach going to give the Europeans when it is obvious he is the one going to learn? It’s very sad that we succeeded in spoiling a perfect plan to get someone with in depth knowledge of the WORLD GAME of football to assist the coach but we succeeded in playing politics with it. All we had to for was get an astute world class coach to assist him. Someone who already has a job with a major world class club side like Guardiola, Wenger or Ferguson (obviously Mourinho is out) so that our coach does not fear he will be sacked. It’s simple. Our coach needs more help than attachment but now even he is afraid of making the request lest Ghanaians say he is not competent.

  8. top ranking says:

    AA has a lot of work to do.if he really wants to qualify beyond this group,he better strategise very well.to be honest,the defense is very baaad!dauda is not reliable cos he is always rushing for the ball and this ends with easy goal scoring.kwarasey in my opinion should be at post.he’s a regular in his club and moreover a captain.so why is AA using dauda?juju or bribe?if AA doesnt solve the defense and bring kwarasey back in post,he should forget about everything.the germans are fast,portugese dangerous and the current US team trust me is dread!AA better prepare very well orrrr klinsmann will surprise him.mark my words cos unless it takes a miracle for AA to sail through.

  9. fred says:

    I think that’s good. Guys we have Soccernet watsup forum,there we talk soccer and argue soccer if you are interested hit me on 0543698566

  10. Zambian says:

    Despite our disappointment in Zambia, we will be supporting you guys all the way. Nice move by the GFA in allowing AA to continue growing and honing his abilities. We wish you luck as your fellow africans and look forward to you doing us proud.

  11. Ojam says:

    Very elegant way of solving the “Technical Director” talk!!! AA simply needs the help from an astute coach! He and Oman Ghana had been lucky to have these players who are trained daily under modern conditions and are playing regularly in the top leagues abroad! Toppmöller would have been a very bad choice (if Toppmöller, then better go for Milo, at least he knows our players very well and better than someone who has been jobless for a long time)! The attachment should happen very fast and with the right clubs and coaches! The GFA should make very good use of Otto Addo. AA should not feel shy or timid to ask for expert advice, guidance and ASSISTANCE from top coaches, nobody can take away his achievements from him! He should know that all the so-called top coaches have their “directors” disguised as “assistants” with them! AA qualified the Black Stars to Brazil and his competence is not in doubt he has to only be pragmatic to reach higher grounds and he should not let this chance slip by; GRAB YOUR CHANCE AND REACH FOR HIGHER GROUNDS , IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST QUALIFY, AA!!!

  12. blz-kwame says:

    Fergusson is out but can still learn from him and Wenger is a top guy to get advise from. or the former Bayern coach.Pick one GFA not any other coach besides these 3 guys. Rednapp could ve been one of them top guys but he is in the championship right now.

  13. GHFUO, be serious & change ur MENtality says:

    U CANT TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS. JUST GET HIM A TECH DIRECTOR INSTEAD. GH PPL DONT LIKE TO DEAL WITH TRUTH. ALWAYS PULLING THE WOOL OVER THEIR EYES.
