Kwesi Appiah reveals his family asked him to quit the Black Stars job

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has revealed his family impressed upon him to abandon the Black Stars before a vital World Cup decider during the qualifying campaign.

The 54-year-old chalked an amazing history when he became the first local man to guide the Black Stars to the World Cup after two previous feats were achieved by Serbians.

The ex-Asante Kotoko great has revealed he nearly quit the job due to family pressure.

“There was a time I was in London to visit the family and around 2 AM, I woke up staring at the ceiling and my wife asked me why I was not sleeping,” Appiah said

“She got angry when I told her  I was thinking about the game and called an emergency family meeting in the morning with my three kids.

“She complained to the kids about the situation and they asked me to leave the Black Stars job because I have played all my years with the team and nobody even appreciated the job I was doing as black stars coach.”

“Let us just say Ghanaians are happy Appiah did not listen to his family because it does not happen often.”

Despite securing qualification to the global piece, talks of a potential attachment with a top European side has divided opinions in the West African country.

The Ghana FA has been forced to quickly deny reports they intend sending him on a refresher course ahead of the soccer mundial.

    I think Appiah should stop talking and concentrate on the job at hand. Ghana is in a group of death and that is the kind of mountain facing us at the worldcup.
